This is going to be a year of Sherlock Holmes for me as I continue work on The Patchwork Devil. In the meantime, I’m pleased to say that I have a new Holmes short story hitting the shelves in a few short months as part of The Mammoth Book of Sherlock Holmes Abroad.
Each story sees Holmes head to a different country, and you don’t have to be the World’s Greatest Detective to deduce where my own, The Adventure of the Mummy’s Curse, takes place. It’s why I’m so pleased to see Egypt so prominent on the cover!
The full line-up includes:
- The Monster of Hell’s Gate by Paul Finch
- The Case of the Maltese Catacombs by William Meikle
- The Adventure of the Colonel’s Daughter by Denis O. Smith
- The Mystery of the Red City by Alison Littlewood
- The Doll Who Talked to the Dead by Nev Fountain
- A Concurrence of Coincidences by David Moody
- The Strange Death of Sherlock Holmes by Andrew Darlington
- The Climbing Man by Simon Clark
- The Curse of Guangxu by Sam Stone
- The Case of the Revenant by Johnny Mains
- The Adventure of the Mummy’s Curse by Cavan Scott
- The Case of the Lost Soul by Paul Kane
- The Lunacy of Celestine Blot by Stephen Volk
- The Crimson Devil by Mark Morris
- The Draugr of Tromse by Carole Johnstone
I can’t wait to read the entire collection myself.
The Mammoth Book of Sherlock Holmes Abroad is published 2 April by Robinson and edited by the wonderful Simon Clark.
