I’m not sure how many people are reading The Doktor’s Spyglass here on my website, as opposed to on Wattpad, but I noticed recently that for some reason I hadn’t enabled comments on the individual chapter pages here.
That has now been fixed. If you’re reading the book here on jamesdcormier.com, comments are now open on all parts of The Doktor’s Spyglass.
Wherever you’re reading it, I want to know what you think!
I’ve decided to take something I’ve been working on and serialize it. It started as a short story but has turned into something quite a bit more interesting.
The Doktor’s Spyglass is a fantasy detective novel, and will be available a chapter at a time on Wattpad. I will update it with new chapters periodically, but no less often than once a month.
Here’s the blurb:
When an eccentric inventor is reported dead, consulting detective Irik Thijis is called in to investigate. He soon discovers that Doktor Keynish Helg is not as dead as he seems, and that something much stranger than simple murder is afoot.
The Inspection Service of the holy city of Oridos is about as useful as a horseless carriage when it comes to solving crimes, and Thijis is used to sorting out their cases for them. But what he discovers lurking in the Doktor’s mansion soon finds them all out of their depth.
As Thijis probes deeper into his strangest case yet, he realizes that blood and death are only the opening gambit in a play that may cost him not only his livelihood, but his life.
If you like steampunk, noir stories, and hard boiled, harder nosed gumshoes, you’ll probably like this.
The first chapter of The Doktor’s Spyglass is available now on Wattpad.
