I’m happy to report that the latest anthology to which I contributed, In the Company of Sherlock Holmes: Stories Inspired by the Holmes Canon, has just received a starred, boxed review in Publishers Weekly, their highest accolade! Even more happily, my story was singled out for special mention:
“an elderly Holmes plays a heroic role in WWII in John Lescroart’s stirring Dunkirk.”
If you still haven’t placed your pre-order, there’s still time! The anthology will be released on November 11, 2014.
In The Company of Sherlock Holmes
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, Michael Dirda, Harlan Ellison, Denise Hamilton, Nancy Holder, John Lescroart, Sara Paretsky, Michael Sims, and more. The game is afoot—again!
