“Once you eliminate the impossible, whatever remains, no matter how improbable, must be the truth.”
The first—and most famous—consulting detective, Sherlock Holmes, came to the world’s attention more than 120 years ago through Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s novels and stories. But Conan Doyle didn’t reveal all of the Great Detective’s adventures…
Here are the improbable adventures of Sherlock Holmes, where nothing is impossible, and nothing can be ruled out. These twenty-eight tales of mystery and the imagination detail Holmes’s further exploits, as told by many of today’s greatest storytellers, including Stephen King, Anne Perry, Anthony Burgess, Neil Gaiman, Naomi Novik, Stephen Baxter, Tanith Lee, Michael Moorcock, and many more.
These cases will take you from the familiar quarters at 221B Baker Street to strange alternate realities; from the gaslit streets of London to the far future. In these pages you’ll find Holmes and Watson investigating ghosts, aliens, pirates, dinosaurs, shape-shifters, evil gods, and criminal masterminds, including the Napoleon of Crime, Professor Moriarty. You’ll be astounded to learn the truths behind cases alluded to by Watson but never before documented… until now. Whether mystery, fantasy, horror, or science fiction, no puzzle is too challenging for the Great Detective.
The game is afoot!
