    • I have a confession. Before reading this book, I had no clue who Paul Kane was. Apparently, to the people in the know, he is the leading guru on Clive Barker's Hellraiser films and mythos (outside of Barker, of course). So you'll have to excuse me for being late to the party. What I do know is that I love Clive Barker's Hellraiser films and I enjoy Sherlock Holmes stories. So when I stumbled across the title of this book, I was instantly intrigued. In what seems upon first glance as a farce, sta [...]


    • Sherlock Holmes and the Servants of Hell. There is so just much potential in the concept. Handle it right, and you've got yourself a horror/mystery that is destined to become a genre staple. Fumble it at any point, however, and you have two separate camps of fandom ready to critique, condemn, and drag you to . . . well, Hell.Fortunately, Paul Kane knows his stuff, and what we have here is no mere imaginative lark. Sherlock Holmes and the Servants of Hell is a very carefully constructed story tha [...]


    • SHERLOCK HOLMES AND THE SERVANTS OF HELL, by Paul Kane, takes place in the late months of 1895. How could anyone resist the "World's Greatest Detective" coming across the dreaded Cenobites from Clive Barker's Hellraiser series? The introduction was written by Barbie Wilde--an author, herself--and an actress cast as the female Cenobite in the movie Hellbound: Hellraiser II. I mention this because the introduction, in this case, was every bit as interesting as the book itself.The novel immediately [...]


    • I was just expecting a funny Holmes vs Pinhead crossover/mash up/pastiche what a surprise finding out this novel was far better than that!!! The author, maybe the most expert about Hellraiser mythos after Barker himself shows knowing for good Doyle's canon too and all rhe references to all movies, novels of both universes were just awesome: I missed the one about Holmes' sister, but the one about "Young Sherlock Holmes" and Barker's characters like Cotton and D'amour (and hidden Pinhead!!!) were [...]


    • Arthur Conan Doyle introduced Sherlock Holmes to readers more than a century ago, and few other characters have proved to possess such longevity or elasticity. Just in my lifetime alone, I've seen Holmes presented as a youngster, a keen yet stuffy detective, a roguish brawler, and an occult detective. I can honestly say I never expected Holmes to come face to face with the Cenobites of Clive Barker's mythology, but Paul Kane corrected that in a mostly, and surprisingly, effective mashup.Holmes a [...]


    • As always this review is also on my blog: thetattooedbookgeek.wordpress.Give it a visit, you may like it! :)I received a free copy of this book courtesy of the publisher in exchange for an honest review.This book has a stunning looking cover, featuring a great artistic design that really stands out, incorporating a classic Holmes silhouette inside the middle of the Lament Configuration Puzzle Box from Hellraiser, really foreshadows what’s to come, drawing your attention in, saying look at me! [...]


    • *Disclaimer: I received a copy of this book through Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.*Holmes and Watson take on the mystery of several missing people, all the cases are linked and point to a group called the 'Order of the Gash'. Watson is sent to an asylum in France to find out more about the order whilst Holmes puts himself in increasing danger exploring Londons underworld for clues as to where the missing people have gone. He becomes obsessed with solving the puzzle box and like thos [...]


    • First of all, what a great bloody cover this is! I have been thinking about cobbling together a short list of my top 5 books so far in 2016. I’m glad now that I waited until I finished this superb read from Paul Kane.I have never read any of the Sherlock Holmes books by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle but now I really want to. A mash-up of Holmes and Clive Barker’s Hellraiser could’ve been a bit of a disaster but Kane does a fantastic job of blending the two worlds together in a book that is excell [...]


    • An excellent, flawless co-mingling of the worlds of Sherlock Holmes and Clive Barker's The Hellbound Heart (or the Hellraiser franchise). Going in I had my doubts that this would work, but after reading Kane's tale, I found myself saying, "Why hasn't this been done before?" Kane does an amazing job of blending the mystery of the Lament Configuration into the great detective's world, but Kane also does much more than that, by taking Holmes' "obsession" with logic and crime-solving and making it t [...]


    • I had high expectations for this one. Maybe too high. But from the reviews here at GoodReads I expected a masterpiece.I'm a huge fan of both worlds/characters and for the first half of the book (which I call "the Sherlock half") they were met, but as soon as the story moves to Hell the suspension of disbelief falls apart. At least, for me, it did.I still enjoyed the novel and think it was a great experiment. If you're a fan it's definitely worth reading.So, like the 2-star rating says, it was OK [...]


    • Review from: cinemablusterAuthor Paul Kane is certainly no slouch when it comes to the world of Hellraiser and the Cenobites that reside within the series. Having written a rather lengthy collection, aptly titled The Hellraiser Films and Their Legacy, to put it mildly, Kane is a bit of a historian on the subject. When I saw the announcement for his most recent novel, Sherlock Holmes and the Servants of Hell, I knew this genre and character mashup would certainly be in good hands. Not only has Ka [...]


    • Muchas gracias to Netgalley for enabling me to get my hands on a free digital advance copy.When I first heard that Sherlock Holmes was being crossed over with HELLRAISER, my initial reaction was: THIS IS THE GREATEST IDEA EVER! Then I calmed down, regained my senses, and thought, "How, exactly?"I believe there is a way to make this crossover work, but, unfortunately, this isn't it. Paul Kane approaches the material more like a rabid fan than a professional storyteller, and the result is a book t [...]


    • 4.76Sherlock Holmes and the Servants of Hell has a brilliant premise: Sherlock Holmes gets a the ultimate locked room mystery to solve: one where the disappearance is caused by none other than the cenobites from Clive Barker's Hellraiser mythos called forth from the Lament Configuration puzzle box. I am not a huge Barker or Hellraiser fan, and in fact beyond the original movie (seen like a billion years ago) and a short story here and there using either the Hellraiser world or references to it, [...]


    • As I haven’t read any Clive Barker yet, I didn’t particularly connected the story of Sherlock Holmes and the Servants of Hell with a preexisting universe (other than Holmes’ of course). Nor did I need to, as the book reads itself very well without any knowledge of the Cenobites. The first part is captivating in a Lovecraftian way : months (years?) after the return of Sherlock, he and Watson work on several disappearances that seem simply not possible : people just vanish inside closed room [...]


    • Paul Kane‘s latest novel came out on July 12th 2016, and I’ve had the opportunity to review it thanks to Paul Kane, Rob Power and Rebellion Publishing/Solaris Books.The following will be a spoiler-free review:“Sherlock Holmes and the Servants of Hell” uses two very well established literary characters, and mixes their worlds together in an extremely fun and refreshing mashup, using both literary universes to the story’s great advantage. The references to each are plentiful, but they gr [...]


    • Review will be posted to Monster Librarian soon. I was surprised how much I enjoyed this book. Recommended for Doyle and Barker fans alike.


    • I'm going to paste in my review here, simply because I think you need to know if you're the right audience for this book or not: First off, there is a reason this book (as I write this) has reviews for 1, 4 and 5 stars, but no 2 or 3. It simply will not appeal to everybody. So let me start with a quick guide as to whether you should read it or not:1. You are a Holmes fan, but you don't like horror or Clive Barker:Under no circumstances read this book. You will hate it and it will be a waste of [...]



    • Paul Kane is no stranger to the Hellraiser universe. He’s the author of the truly outstanding “The Hellraiser Films and Their Legacy” as well as the editor for the short story anthology, Hellbound Hearts, which expanded Clive Barker’s mythos still further. This is a man who clearly respects Clive Barker’s most brilliant creation. So there could be no safer hands for a tale that brings together two legends, Sherlock Holmes and the Cenobites. As a huge Hellraiser fan myself, I have to ad [...]


    • Wow, what a great book. I'll admit i am more of a fan of the Hellraiser universe than the Sherlock one BUT i was very intrigued by this idea/book. I was not disappointed.Carrying all the best traditions from both worlds and creating a horror 'mash-up' of the highest order (of the Gash? :) ). There is no Pinhead, Chatterer, Butterball or Female Cenobite but, considering the timeline of this book thats highly obvious really. There are hundreds of other cenobites to whet your fiendish appetites tho [...]


    • An excellent read that combines the universes of Sherlock Holmes and Hellraiser. Paul Kane starts the book is a style that is a fine homage to the writing of Conan Doyle in Holmes' short stories, before expanding out the universe. There's something about Hellraiser and Victorian gothic that works well, and this works superbly. If you are like me, and are familiar with both Holmes and Hellraiser, you will become aware of many little easter eggs Paul Kane leaves throughout the story, referring to [...]


    • It's Sherlock Holmes meets Hellraiser. It sounds far-fetched, and it is, but most importantly it works. Almost as if they were always meant to be together. Recommended and hope someone options the film rights.



    • Following in the footsteps of Doyle is no small task. So any writer that does so and pulls it off gets my respect. Writing a post-Doyle Holmes story that crosses over with another fictional world is probably no less difficult.This book is every bit as audacious as one might guess, and then some. It starts out feeling very much like any account of Holmes' adventures as related by Watson. Even when the narrative shifts to a third person, the book feels no less genuine. Towards the end, things take [...]


    • In all honesty I would like to give this book two and a half stars. For most of the story it is a well told tale of Sherlock Holmes & John Watson. For most of the story it is an excellent venture into the Hellraiser mythos. Almost a reselling if you get down to it. It is in the third act that things come off the rails a bit for me. I want to be clear, I enjoyed this book. It is 2/3 of an excellent genre mashup, but the final act, and I don't want to give away spoilers, seemed tame compared t [...]


    • Sherlock Holmes Pastiche - Thriller/HorrorPretty sure this is my first SH "pastiche" read. This hair-raising tale is a combination of Holmes and horror legend Clive Barker's Books of Blood, which I read approx. 15 years ago and LOVED!This will be a rare keeper. It was such a terrific story!


    • A perfect imagining. Any fan of Sherlock Holmes will enjoy. Any fan of Hellraiser will enjoy. A fan of both will squirm with delight. Such exquisite suffering!


    • The idea of weaving Sherlock Holmes into the Hellraiser mythos seemed incredibly awesome, and I was pleased to see that it was as good as I'd hoped it to be. The way Holmes and Watson investigated a series of missing persons, and the way they harkened back to Barker's original movie and the Hellbound Hearts novella as well were masterfully done, and made for a wonderful couple of afternoon's diversions.
