Welcome to mayhem and mystery…
Holloway’s The Baskerville Affair has something to do with bad dogs and Sherlock Holmes, but why stop there? There’s also the hijinx at Hellion House, not to mention hungry monsters outside Londria’s city gates. We have dirigibles, automatons, sorcerers, dragons, sundry pirates, ballrooms and murder. What type of stories are these? They are one part mystery, two parts adventure and a wee pinch of romance.
