Nick Cardillo.jpg


Nick Cardillo is a writer and a lifelong fan of mystery fiction. Introduced to Arthur Conan Doyle's Sherlock Holmes stories at the age of six, Nick has written several Sherlockian pastiches published by MX Publishing and Belanger Books. These were collected in The Feats of Sherlock Holmes (2018) and The Improbable Casebook of Sherlock Holmes (2021). He is the author of "The Devil's Book," published in The Novellas of Solar Pons (2022) by Belanger Books, the first collection of longer stories based on August Derleth's pulp detective to be authorized by the Derleth Estate. "Cardillo is to be commended for capturing, at times, the spirit and style of the originals so cleanly," said Jim Noy, author of The Red Death Murders, "and I genuinely did forget I was reading pastiches at times." And Vincent Golphin says, "Nick Cardillo weaves stories with clever manners complicated characters and vivid settings." When not writing, Nick is an actor in the region outside his home in Philadelphia.
