Book Giveaway For The MX Book of New Sherlock Holmes Stories – Part VI: 2017 Annual

Book Giveaway For The MX Book of New Sherlock Holmes Stories – Part VI: 2017 Annual

2017 is the 130th anniversary of the publication of A Study in Scarlet, the first recorded adventure of Sherlock Holmes and Dr. John H. Watson. What an amazing journey it’s been! In addition to the pitifully few sixty tales originally presented in The Canon, published between 1887 and 1927, there have been literally thousands of additional Holmes adventures in the form of books, short stories, radio and television episodes, movies, manuscripts, comics, and fan fiction. And yet, for those who are true friends and admirers of the Master Detective of Baker Street, where it is always 1895 (or a few decades on either side of that!) these stories are not enough. Give us more! In 2015, The MX Book of New Sherlock Holmes Stories burst upon the scene, featuring stories set within the correct time period, and written by many of today’s leading Sherlockian authors from around the world. Those first three volumes were overwhelmingly received, and there were soon calls for additional collections. Since then, the popularity has only continued to grow. Two more volumes were released in 2016, and this the first of two planned for 2017 – with no end in sight! The thirty-five stories in this volume – now bringing the total number of narratives and participating authors in this series to well over one-hundred! – represent some of the finest new Holmesian storytelling to be found, and honor the man described by Watson as “the best and wisest … whom I have ever known.”

The MX Book of New Sherlock Holmes Stories – Part VI: 2017 Annual is available for pre order from all good bookstores including in the USA The Strand Magazine, Amazon, Barnes and Noble, in the UK Amazon, Waterstones, and for free shipping worldwide Book Depository.

Book Giveaway For The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes – Re-Imagined – The Complete Collection

This collected volume reprints all twelve short stories comprising The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes – Re-Imagined book series in one paperback edition. Between its covers the original tales by Conan Doyle have been amusingly illustrated using only LEGO® brand minifigures and bricks. The illustrations recreate, through custom designed Lego models, the composition of the black and white drawings by Sidney Paget that accompanied the original publication of these adventures appearing in The Strand Magazine from July 1891 to June 1892. Paget’s iconic illustrations are largely responsible for the popular image of Sherlock Holmes, including his deerstalker cap and Inverness cape, details never mentioned in the writings of Conan Doyle.

The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes – Re-Imagined — The Complete Collection is available for pre order from all good bookstores including  Amazon USA, Amazon UK, Waterstones UK and for free shipping worldwide Book Depository.

Book Giveaway For The Affairs of Sherlock Holmes by Sax Rohmer – Volume 1

Book Giveaway For The Affairs of Sherlock Holmes by Sax Rohmer – Volume 1

In the 1800s, a number of Victorian and Edwardian writers began writing detective mystery stories – for this was the era when Arthur Conan Doyle was creating Sherlock Holmes tales on a regular basis. Modern authors have attempted to recapture the mystique of Conan Doyle’s adventures by writing “new” Holmes stories; yet these attempts frequently fail to capture the original flavor, because 2013 writers simply don’t think or speak like Victorians. Conan Doyle’s contemporaries wrote about characters of their own invention; nevertheless they sound more like Conan Doyle than do any of his deliberate modern imitators. One of the more successful of these “period” writers was Sax Rohmer. Now in 2016, both Sax Rohmer’s stories and the Conan Doyle canon are all in the public domain. Thus it is now possible to present … Sax Rohmer’s version of Sherlock Holmes.

The Affairs of Sherlock Holmes By Sax Rohmer – Volume 1 is available for pre order from all good bookstores including  Amazon USA, Amazon UK, Waterstones UK and for free shipping worldwide Book Depository.
