Sherlock Holmes Universe - Sherlock vs. the Supernatual
Sherlock vs. the Supernatural
Sherlock Holmes was the ultimate rationalist, scoffing at such things as ghosts and vampires. But that hasn't stopped some excellent authors from pitting him against strange and dark forces in some highly entertaining tales.
Holmes (sometimes aided by the trusty Dr. Watson) takes on everything from fairies to Count Dracula himself in these tales, while encountering his "competition", Victorian crime-fighters Flaxman Low and Carnacki the Ghost Finder!

Top authors have a fine time stirring the Great Detective into the swirling lurking darkness that typifies Lovecraft's stories. (The title is a play on Lovecraft's story, "The Shadow Over Innsmouth".)
