Description:  Solar Pons is noted for being the Sherlock Holmes of Praed Street. But there was a connection to horror in Pons which separated him from his Baker Street mentor. It is noted that Solar Pons wrote An Examination of the Cthulhu Cult and Others. He acknowledged that Carnacki was a legitimate Ghostfinder, and he faced off against a vampire in “The Adventure of the Nosferatu”.  What other horrors did Solar Pons face? What unspeakable evil did he uncover when write his examination of the Cthulhu cults?

A new game is afoot!
