I’m thrilled that Echoes of Sherlock Holmes is published today. This is the third volume in an award-winning series of short stories inspired by the Holmes canon. I’m honored that editors Laurie R. King and Leslie S. Klinger asked me to contribute to this book, and that it includes my story “Irregular.”
Kirkus Reviews says: “‘Inspired’ is the key word here… every fan will find different reasons to cheer. And they’ll all marvel at the inventive range of this salute to the greatest of all fictional detectives.”
Publishers Weekly has named Echoes of Sherlock Holmes one of its Top 10 Mystery Books of Fall 2016.
And I’m absolutely stoked to see my name on the cover alongside authors like David Morrell, John Connolly, Cory Doctorow, and so many other amazing writers.
Here’s something cool and exciting: the cover for the upcoming anthology Echoes of Sherlock Holmes. It will be the third volume in the bestselling, award-winning series edited by Laurie R. King and Leslie S. Klinger. I’m thrilled that one of the stories in the anthology is mine.
These are “stories inspired by the Holmes canon.” Authors were given the freedom to write whatever we wanted, as long as the Sherlock Holmes tales somehow informed our work. Some of the stories will probably be Holmes pastiches, set in 19th century London. Others, including mine, take place in modern times, and connect to Arthur Conan Doyle’s work at an oblique angle. This should be an eclectic and dynamic anthology, and a lot of fun.
Echoes of Sherlock Holmes will be published in September. I’ll have more details nearer to the date.
