Synopses & Reviews
Since Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's death other mystery writers have produced innumerable new stories featuring the Great Detective, but never has there been as voluminous a collection as The Mammoth Book of New Sherlock Holmes Adventures. Holmes's name may have passed into legend, but his legacy -- and character -- have been carried on by such great mystery masters as Anthony Boucher and John Dickson Carr as well as by contemporary writers like Peter Lovesey and Peter Tremayne.
Veteran editor Mike Ashley has uncovered not only the many missing cases Watson referred to, though did not publish, but also hitherto unrecorded cases that have been commissioned especially for this book.
With stories by:
John Dickson Carr
Adrian Conan Doyle
Lillian de la Torr
Edward D. Hoch
John C. Hogan
and many others
Bringing together these cases in their proper chronological order, The Mammoth Book of New Sherlock Holmes Adventures throws new light on the original canon and adds an extra dimension of entertainment for the Great Detective's innumerable readers.
