Product description


"Laurie R. King and Leslie Klinger continue to breathe new life into Sherlockian tales.", LitHub

"Entertaining. This volume contains something for every fan of the Baker Street sleuth.", Publishers Weekly

"King and Klinger have commissioned 14 new stories that make up their wildest, weirdest crop yet.", Kirkus Reviews

"Many of the stories are fascinating in their inventiveness. There’s plenty of mystery, of course, but there are also elements of fantasy and sci-fi, as well as a comic strip with an insectoid Holmes.", Seattle Book Review

"An amazing array of stories. This collection is a must for Sherlock Holmes devotees this holiday season.", Brooklyn Fans
