Friends!

I am excited to be a part of this upcoming collection of original Sherlock stories, edited by the award-winning Sherlock authors Laurie R. King and Leslie S. Klinger, with contributions by authors from a variety of genres. If you have enjoyed the timeless Sherlock mysteries, take a look at these new and unique stories!

The book will be published soon, on November 11, 2014. Pre-order now and get it as soon as it’s out!

In the Company of Sherlock Holmes

Stories Inspired by the Holmes Canon

In the follow-up to the nationally bestselling A Study in Sherlock, a stunning new volume of original stories from award-winning Sherlockians Laurie R. King and Leslie S. Klinger.

The Sherlock Holmes stories by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle were recently voted as the top mystery series of all time, and they have enthralled generations of readers—and writers!

Now, Laurie R. King, author of the New York Times-bestselling Mary Russell series (in which Holmes plays a co-starring role), and Leslie S. Klinger, editor of The New Annotated Sherlock Holmes, have assembled a stellar group of contemporary authors from a variety of genres and asked them to create new stories inspired by that canon. Readers will find Holmes in times and places previously unimagined, as well as characters who have themselves been affected by the tales of Sherlock Holmes. The resulting volume is an absolute delight for Holmes fans both new and old, with contributions from Michael Connelly, Jeffery Deaver, Harlan Ellison, Denise Hamilton, Nancy Holder, John Lescroart, Sara Paretsky, Michael Sims, and more. The game is afoot—again!
