The Quality of Mercy
I've written a few weird Sherlock Holmes stories over the past few years. The first one was THE QUALITY OF MERCY in Gaslight Grotesque.
Since then I've done THE CALL OF THE DANCE, published in the Lovecraft ezine, THE COLOUR THAT CAME TO CHISWICK in Gaslight Arcanum and the novella from Dark Regions, SHERLOCK HOLMES: REVENANT.
These are all included in the hardcover and trade paperback collection from Dark Renaissance, along with new stories original to this volume.

This book has been approved by the Conan Doyle estate.
For anyone who loves great storytelling and well crafted stories this book is for you. For Sherlock Holmes fans this book is an absolute must and I highly recommend it.- FAMOUS MONSTERS OF FILMLAND
Sir Arthur Conan Doyle would be proud. The feel of each story brings me back to those old tales of Sherlock Holmes, and one can easily believe that Meikle has unearthed some forgotten tome that contains all of the supernatural, extraterrestrial and just plain old unnatural adventures of Holmes and his trusty companion, Dr. Watson - THE DEEPENING
Meikle writes Holmes and Watson with a warm friendship. Their interaction is reminiscent of the radio series featuring Rathbone as Holmes and Nigel Bruce as the story-telling Watson. The collection is a quick read, with plenty of twists and turns in each of the cases. Fans of Holmes in any medium will enjoy this anthology. - HORRORVIEWReaders looking for superb supernatural spins with Holmes need look no further. - Rick Kleffel's AGONY COLUMN
