"The detectives and I must have echoed it" [VALL]
Laurie R. King, BSI ("The Red Circle") and Leslie S. Klinger, BSI ("The Abbey Grange") are no strangers to the mystery genre. Laurie is probably best known for her Mary Russell-Sherlock Holmes stories, and Les has annotated the Sherlock Holmes stories, Dracula, Sandman and H.P. Lovecraft.
Together, the two have edited two anthologies of stories inspired by Sherlock Holmes: A Study in Sherlock and In the Company of Sherlock Holmes. They're back at it again with a third volume, Echoes of Sherlock Holmes, and we sit down with them to discuss what it's like pulling together the work from a wide variety of mystery writers.
If you'd like to see Laurie and Les in person, they'll be at the Poisoned Pen in Scottsdale, Arizona on October 1 at 2:00 pm; and at Book Passage in Corte Madera, California on October 8 at 5:00 pm. And there will be a celebration of the publication of Echoes of Sherlock Holmes via the Sherlock Holmes Breakfast Club in Los Angeles on October 9 at 3:00 pm.
