Last week to support on Kickstarter – The MX Book of New Sherlock Holmes Stories Volumes 9 & 10
“The MX New Book of Sherlock Holmes Stories” collection has over 100 of the world’s leading Sherlock Holmes authors participating.
The anthology includes only traditional stories set in the original Sherlock Holmes period. Between them, these authors have sold millions of books, and they come together for a common cause – Undershaw.
This is Volumes IX and X – The 2018 Annual bringing 37 new stories spread across the two volumes. Full list of participating authors is below.
“No historical material here. This is all new, and it’s beyond impressive, in quantity (more than 60 stories in three handsome volumes) and in consistent quality. Here are some — most — of the best, most dedicated Holmesian authors working today” – Sherlock Holmes Society of London review of Volumes I-III
The authors are donating the royalties to projects at Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s former home, Undershaw. The building was in terrible disrepair and was saved from destruction by the Undershaw Preservation Trust (patron Mark Gatiss). Today the building is the new home of Stepping Stones (a school for children with learning difficulties) and has being lovingly restored to its former glory. Royalties will go to Stepping Stones for specific projects such as the new literary program.
