The Sherlock Holmes Society of London reviews The MX Book of New Sherlock Holmes Stories Part IX and X, 2018 Annual

06 Aug

“These two latest volumes maintain the high standard set three years ago by editor and publisher. Parts IX and X between them contain thirty-seven new stories, all as faithful as possible to the canonical tradition and style. The authors include Sonia Fetherston, S.F. Bennett, Mark Mower, Kelvin Jones, Jayantika Ganguly, Daniel D Victor, Hugh Ashton, Tim Symonds and David Marcum himself. There’s also a play by the late Jim French, and another by Leslie Charteris and Denis Green – a nice addendum to Sherlock Holmes: The Lost Radio Scripts. Nicholas Meyer, whose novel The Seven-per-Cent Solution effectively began the age of quality Holmes pastiche, contributes a foreword. Neither editor nor authors will benefit financially, as all royalties go towards the conservation of Undershaw, Conan Doyle’s former Surrey home, which now houses Stepping Stones School. The books are treasurable and the cause is admirable.

The MX Book of New Sherlock Holmes Stories are available from all good bookstores including The Strand MagazineAmazon USABarnes and Noble USAAmazon UKWaterstones UK and for free shipping worldwide Book Depository. Available on KindleKoboNook and Apple iBooks (iPad/iPhone).
