Sherlock Holmes Steampunk Book in need of funding

If you are interested in seeing an interactive eBook of a Sherlock Holmes adventure in a steampunk setting then you had better put your money where your mouth is. Unfortunately this crowd-sourced project is behind on its funding – they are looking for $29,000, but only have $15,000 at the moment.

Here’s some more information from their Kickstarter  page:

Steampunk Holmes is a series of seven books published across multiple channels. This project raises funds for the first book in the series, Steampunk Holmes: Legacy of the Nautilus.

About ‘Steampunk Holmes: Legacy of the Nautilus’

In an alternative Steampunk universe (c.1885), the plans for Captain Nemo’s mysterious Nautilus submarine have been stolen from the British Secret Service. There is only one man who can solve the case, Sherlock Holmes. With his bionic side-kick Doctor Watson, and his brilliant and lethal sister, Mycroft Holmes, Sherlock unravels a mystery that will shake the foundation of the British Empire.

I wonder if Sherlock Holmes would be quite at home in a Jules Verne inspired setting. After all his creator, Conan Doyle, wrote similar work such as The Lost World, which isn’t a million miles away from what Verne was producing.

  3. Very interesting images Watson. I wonder who the artist is here? Any ideas? It reminds me of Kevin O’Neill’s work on 2000AD. Did you see this article too in (gulp) The Daily Mail – I thought it was Steam Punk come to life: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/sciencetech/article-2154361/The-REAL-flying-Scotsman-120mph-propeller-driven-Railplane-left-inventor-dreamed-revolutionising-commuting-1930s-Britain-penniless.html
