"Some really extraordinary stories" [STOC]
From the Baker Street Supper Club, March 19th:
“For those of you already compiling your Christmas gift lists, Random House will be publishing a new anthology of stories inspired by Holmes canon, just in time for the holiday season.
A Study in Sherlock features contributions from well known authors such as Neil Gaiman, Lee Child, Alan Bradley and many more. The anthology has been compiled by Laurie R. King, award winning writer of the Mary Russell and Kate Martinelli novels, and Leslie S. Klinger, world renowned Holmes expert and editor of The New Annotated Sherlock Holmes.
The collection will be published in December 2011 and is available to pre-order from Amazon now. For more details and future teasers from the book please visit the A Study in Sherlock blog.”
The publication date above is for the UK. According to Amazon.com, it will be released in the US on October 25th, 2011. On the A Study in Sherlock blog, Laurie R. King says this about the stories in the anthology:
“They’re all fabulous. Absolutely great.
Neil Gaiman writes about bees, China, and A Certain Beekeeper. Tom Perry set his story in 1901 Buffalo, New York. SJ Rozan’s is built around “The Man With the Crooked Lip.” Dana Stabenow’s Kate Shugak meets “The Eyak Interpreter.” Colin Cotterill did us a graphic story—that’s graphic as in drawings, not as in overt gore. And the 90 files he sent his story in has given Random House a…challenge (better them than me, thank heavens.) And by way of bonus, Les Klinger and I did an introduction—plus, there’s Twinterview (an interview, in 140 characters) between Les and Mary Russell!”
Interested? Head over to Amazon.com for price info and to pre-order. And for more with the other co-editor Les Klinger, check out Episode 31 of I Hear of Sherlock Everywhere.
