Holmes + Watson

Stories of Sherlock Holmes and Dr Watson – friendship and mysteries! Traditional Victorian-era tales and occasional modern interpretations!

Coming soon: Sherlock Holmes: The Australian Casebook

(Holmes+Watson)

Sherlock Holmes: The Australian Casebook is due out in hardcover in November 2017, but the cover was recent revealed along with the list of contributors and the editor, Christopher Sequeira.

Bonnier Publishing’s blurb on the fully illustrated anthology says:

It’s 1890. Holmes’s fame has spread even to the colonies, and he and his stalwart chronicler Watson are swept up in an array of mysteries Down Under. They find themselves summoned from place to place, dealing with exciting and unique mysteries in every corner of this strange island continent.

All the stories are original and are set in Australia. My contribution, ‘The Mystery of the Miner’s Wife’, is set in Ballarat. Keep an eye out here or at Bonnier’s imprint, Echo Publishing, for more news closer to the release date.
