Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A brand-new collection of Sherlock Holmes stories from a variety of exciting voices in modern horror and steampunk, including James Lovegrove, Justin Richards, Paul Magrs, Guy Adams and Mark Hodder. Edited by respected anthologist George Mann, and including a story by Mann himself.

Review:

"The 14 mostly first-rate if occasionally gory selections in Mann's anthology of all-original Holmes pastiches will delight fans of 'one of the world's best known and most loved fictional creations.' Mark Hodder starts things off with 'The Loss of Chapter Twenty-One,' in which eccentric poet Algernon 'Algy' Swinburne screeches into Baker Street seeking help for ailing explorer Sir Richard Burton, a translator of Arab erotica who's seeking a work that includes a vital chapter missing from his own copy. Holmes encounters an alien-betrothed H.G. Wells in Eric Brown's 'The Tragic Affair of the Martian Ambassador,' an improbable yet tragic tale of interplanetary politics and suicide. London becomes a virtual slaughterhouse in Cavan Scott's graphic 'The Demon Slasher of Seven Sisters,' a case that nearly breaks Holmes according to news reports chronicling the horrific episode. Blood and viscera flow freely in dingy London alleyways as the discovery of a decapitated corpse leads Holmes and Watson to pursue a malformed monster suggestive of Frankenstein in Nick Kyme's 'The Post-Modern Prometheus.' Other fine stories, such as 'Adventure of the Locked Carriage' by Stuart Douglas, are reminiscent of the original brilliance that Conan Doyle gave us more than a century ago. (Feb.)"
