The game is afoot! A new Sherlock anthology

I’ve been waiting to post about this until the ebook version is out, and now I can! The MX Book of New Sherlock Holmes Stories, Volume XIV, is out in ebook, paperback, and hardback, and I have a story in it!

I was rather chuffed to receive a hardback contributor copy in the post a few weeks ago – look at this handsome beast! First time I’ve been in hardback!


The anthology is packed full of contributions from noted Sherlockians – mostly short stories – and weighs in at almost 500 pages. It’s a great opportunity to try some new-to-me authors, and I’m looking forward to sitting down with the volume as soon as I have breathing space! The profits from the book go to Stepping Stones School, which is based at Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s former home, Undershaw.

My contribution is a short story called ‘The Adventure of the Scarlet Rosebud’, and here’s a little teaser!


If you’d like to read on, check out the book on Amazon:
