    1. This is a collection of P.H. Cannon's short stories. I will be reviewing them as I complete them.Pulptime: H. P. Lovecraft and his sidekick Frank Belknap Long get involved in a case of the aging Sherlock Holmes's involving Houdini, spiritualism, illegal immigrants, and smuggling.

Wodehouse!The first half of the book is an okay detective story featuring Sherlock Holmes working with Lovecraft to retrieve some stolen letters. The second half is where all the fun is: Jeeves and Wooster face off against Lovecraftian horrors. Not for those who are unfamiliar with the works of any of the three authors Cannon is parodying, but a quick, fun read for those who are [...]
