What would happen if you asked eighteen top writers who
donâ€™t normally write about Sherlock Holmes, to write about
Sherlock Holmes? What if you wrote to them, saying:
In 19th century England, a new kind of heroâ€”a consulting
detectiveâ€”blossomed in the mind of an underemployed doctor
and ignited the worldâ€™s imagination. In the thirteen decades
since A Study in Scarlet first appeared, countless
variations on that theme have been played, from Mary Russell
to Greg House, from â€˜Basil of Baker Streetâ€™ to the new BBC
We suspect that you have in the back of your mind a story
that plays a variation on the Holmes theme....
And what if these great writers read that proposal and
decided that yes, they did have that kind of tale in the
back of their minds? The result is A Study in Sherlock,
Stories Inspired by the Sherlock Holmes Canon, with
stories by Alan Bradley, Tony Broadbent, Jan Burke, Lionel
Chetwynd, Lee Child, Colin Cotterill, Neil Gaiman, Laura
Lippman, Gayle Lynds and John Sheldon, Phillip and Jerry
Margolin, Margaret Maron, Thomas Perry, S. J. Rozan, Dana
Stabenow, Charles Todd, and Jacqueline Winspear.
