The Secret Casebook of Simon Feximal
The Secret Casebook of Simon Feximal | KJ Charles
4 posts | 8 read | 2 to read
A story too secret, too terrifyingand too shockingly intimatefor Victorian eyes. A note to the Editor Dear Henry, I have been Simon Feximals companion, assistant and chronicler for twenty years now, and during that time my Casebooks of Feximal the Ghost-Hunter have spread the reputation of this most accomplished of ghost-hunters far and wide. You have asked me often for the tale of our first meeting, and how my association with Feximal came about. I have always declined, because it is a story too private to be truthfully recounted, and a memory too precious to be falsified. But none knows better than I that stories must be told. So here is it, Henry, a full and accurate account of how I met Simon Feximal, which I shall leave with my solicitor to pass to you after my death. I dare say it may not be quite what you expect. Robert Caldwell September 1914

Those of you making RIP XIII lists should consider this novel-in-stories. KJ Charles takes the classic Victorian ghost story and queers it up as Robert, who for many years played Watson to ghost hunter Simon's Holmes, decides to quit censoring himself and relate their most personal adventures as they actually happened. This means treasonous secrets and queer love, plus the occasional murder by inaction. It's good stuff.

I'm HUNGRY, so I made myself a second lunch to eat while I read some more of THE SECRET CASEBOOK OF SIMON FEXIMAL. This plate was so good I immediately prepped and ate another, and I'm pretty sure I could fit a third in with zero effort.

Four stars. Grown-up men in a real, developing relationship. Believable underpinning of a fun urban fantasy.

Read this in one day. This book blew me out of the water. I loved Simon and Richard. I loved their relationship. The end of this book really hit me and I cried at my desk at work. Highly recommended!
