Baker Street Irregulars co-edited by Michael A. Ventrella and Jonathan Maberrry will be released March 21, 2017.
Thirteen authors, including Gail Z. Martin, David Gerrold, and Jonathan Maberry, come together to pen short stories innovating Sherlock Holmes, adapting and revolutionizing the iconic character.
Sherlock Holmes is one of the most iconic and lasting figures in literature. His feats of detection are legendary, and he continues to capture audiences today. But BAKER STREET IRREGULARS presents the celebrated detective in a dozen different, wildly entertaining new ways. In Ryk Spoor’s thrilling “The Adventures of a Reluctant Detective”, Sherlock is a re-creation in a holodeck. In Hildy Silverman’s mesmerizing “A Scandal in the Bloodline”, Sherlock is a vampire. Heidi McLaughlin sends Sherlock back to college, while Beth Patterson, in the charming “Code Cracker”, turns him into a parrot. The settings are as varied as Russia in the near-future, a dystopian world, a reality show, an orchestra. Without losing the very qualities that make Sherlock so illustrious a character, these authors spin new webs of mystery around their own singular riff on one of literature’s truly singular characters.
Absolutely awesome can’t wait.
I’m sold on the first one!
