A new collection of adventures and mystery stories featuring Sherlock Holmes encompasses fifteen tales by Morgan Llywelyn, Mike Resnick, Craig Shaw Gardner, and others

Blackwell North Amer
It has long been believed that when Cox & Company (London) was destroyed in a World War II bombing raid, with it was also destroyed the legendary tin dispatch-box of Dr. Watson. This box, containing notes on dozens of Sherlock Holmes's adventures never released to the public, is perhaps the Holy Grail for Holinesian scholars and fans. Now the miraculous truth can be told - the last casebooks of Sherlock Holmes have survived!
When Watson died intestate, the box found its way into the hands of renowned Philadelphia book collector Mr. R. To his dismay, the collector discovered that the box contained primarily Watson's rough notes, so he set about commissioning writers to complete them for his own amusement. After Mr. R.'s death, it was discovered through records and text analysis that the ghost-writers who completed the stories are among the most famous names in literature.
Here, available to the public for the first time, are fifteen legendary Holmes tales as written by Ernest Hemingway (Morgan Llywelyn), Ellery Queen (Edward D. Hoch), W. Somerset Maugham (Henry Slesar), H. P. Lovecraft (Paula Volsky), Mickey Spillane (William L. DeAndrea), J. Thorne Smith (Mike Resnick), Jack Kerouac (Richard A. Lupoff), Edgar Rice Burroughs (Craig Shaw Gardner), and Rex Stout (Marvin Kaye), among others. All in all, it is a triumph of scholarship, a boon to literature, and a treasure trove sure to delight everyone whose heart belongs to Baker Street.

Seems easy-pour a little fog into Baker Street, have a commissionaire stomp up the stairs, a little more cut and paste and you produce a Holmes/Watson story. Wrong. Most of these tales are from the bottom of Watson's dispatch box. But Ed Hoch is always worth a read, and Resnick's "Mrs. Vanberry Takes a Trip" is one of the funniest and surely the raciest stories ever written about our heroes.
