My Sherlock Holmes

Untold Stories of the Great Detective

Michael Kurland, Editor

Minotaur Books

For over a century, readers have thrilled to the exploits of Sherlock Holmes as told from the point of view of Dr. Watson. But do Watson's tales really tell the true story of the Great Detective? In this collection of thirteen original tales, each narrated by a side character from the original canon, another side of the legend is revealed. From what Inspector Lestrade really thought about Holmes to Holmes' untold encounter with the insidious Dr. Fu Manchu, from the bitter reminiscences of C. Auguste Dupin to the thoughts of his long-term landlady, Mrs. Hudson, the long-standing veil of mystery over Sherlock Holmes is finally lifted.

From the imaginations of Barbara Hambly, Cara Black, Peter Tremayne, Richard Lupoff, and Michael Kurland, among others, another side of the famous fictional detective is finally revealed.
