Premature Book Review: Sherlock Holmes and the Flying Zombie Death Monkeys

Author Chris Wood was good enough to send me a copy of his book, Sherlock Holmes and the Flying Zombie Death Monkeys, a collection of three stories involving Holmes and Watson in a less-than standard light. The titular story involves Holmes and Watson battling a plot to replace the British Parliament's lords with undead, winged simians. It is a fun book that reminds me in some ways of Gideon Defoe's The Pirates! books in the absurdist nature of the tales. I enjoyed the first story a lot. I think Wood captures the feel of Doyle's writing providing a modern feel. If you like a cheeky, funny story this is one for you.
