Before Baker Street

221b Baker Street! Just the mention of those words is enough to suggest mystery and adventure and heroism. Over many years, this humble London address was the destination of so many people – clients and policemen, the rich and the poor, those needing help and those with a secret. This famed location is known all over the world, for it’s the one most associated with the legendary . . . Sherlock Holmes! But there was a time before Sherlock Holmes moved to Baker Street, before his fame had grown, when he was still learning his craft and struggling to create his unique profession – the first of its kind – Consulting Detective! Join some of the finest Sherlockian writers as they explore those early days Before Baker Street. Read about when Holmes was still a boy, learning from his older brother Mycroft, or later, when he had moved to London, living in Montague Street, just 'round the corner from the British Museum, waiting for the next adventure to begin . . . . The Game is afoot!

"Some really good stories of the Master Sleuth's early career." - The Blue Carbuncle, from 5-star Amazon review.


Beyond Watson

Imagine a Holmes without his Boswell... or, as is the case with the volume you now hold in your hands, imagine a Holmes without the voice of Watson. Is there a difference? After all, we have learned about the great detective not through his own voice and eyes, but through that of his loyal companion, his dear friend, his Boswell. What might we be missing? Who else could tell of the great detective’s feats? Find out as today's best Sherlock Holmes authors including Derrick Belanger, Luke Kuhns, Kieran Lyne, David Marcum, Jack McDevitt, Richard Paolinelli, David Ruffle, Geri Schear, Don Smith, Elizabeth Varadan, Daniel Victor, and Marcia Wilson tell stories from the perspectives of: Sherlock Holmes Mrs Hudson Colonel Sebastian Moran Raymond Chandler Inspector Lestrade Winston Churchill Violet Hunter Henry Mencken and many others... Experience Holmes like never before as you go Beyond Watson! Includes a special introductory toast from Mark Levy, BSI

"Beyond Watson is a very interesting anthology or Sherlock Holmes themed short stories. Most Holmes anthologies have interesting tales in them but this one has a very cool twist. None of the stories are told in the voice of Doctor Watson." --Cameron Greatorex, from 5-Star Amazon review.
