This book will appeal to Sherlockians everywhere. If Sir Arthur Ignatius Conan Doyle was alive today, first off he would be 153 years old, but more importantly, he would appreciate the many directions that the various authors in this book have taken his character ; Sherlock Holmes. As well as Doctor John Watson.

This anthology includes stories by Stephen King, Anne Perry, Neil Gaiman, Robert J. Sawyer and 24 others. They all have a different slant on Sherlock’s life, and adventures.

We find time travel, curses, and all sorts of oddities within the time frame he lived in. We find worthy opponents and even those who tease him. We find some that are his equal and some that just don’t have a chance against the mind of the World’s Greatest Consulting Detective.

Inspector Lestrade and Mrs Hudson are included in the tales.

A HIGHLY entertaining collection of short stories by a broad spectrum of writers from the horror, fantasy and sci-fi genres. All do Sherlock justice.

Fast paced and HIGHLY RECOMMENDED
