The Punishment of Sherlock Holmes is an engaging collection from Philip K Jones and Bob Burr collected over decades. The Sherlock Holmes Society of London describes the book this week in their journal as:
“The Punishment of Sherlock Holmes: Selected Sherlockian Puns edited by Bob Burr and Philip K Jones is a deliberately and successfully funny assemblage of what must be several hundred short and short-short shaggy dog stories about Holmes and Watson. The book is dedicated to John Bennett Shaw, who would have loved it.”
The book compiles short stories from several decades and from countries all over the world. The book is available for pre-order from all good bookstores including Amazon USA, Amazon UK, Book Depository (free worldwide delivery) and soon in all electronic formats.
