Summary
In a stunning follow-up to the acclaimed In the Company of Sherlock Holmes , Laurie R. King and Leslie S. Klinger present a brand-new anthology of stories inspired by the Arthur Conan Doyle canon.

Echoes of Sherlock Holmes puts forth the question: What happens when great writers/creators who are not known as Sherlock Holmes devotees admit to being inspired by Conan Doyle stories? While some of these talented authors are highly-regarded mystery writers, others are best known for their work in the fields of fantasy or science fiction. All of them, however, share a great admiration for Arthur Conan Doyle and his greatest creations, Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson.

Some stories tell of Holmes himself (in Victorian Baker Street or modern New York, in various guises or a different gender), while others explore various Conan Doyle characters.

Although not a formal collection of new Holmes stories (though some do fit that mold), these tales are inspired by the Conan Doyle canon. The results are breathtaking--for long-time fans of Holmes and Watson, for readers new to Doyle's writing, and for all readers who love exceptional storytelling. Featuring stories by Tasha Alexander, Cory Doctorow, Hallie Ephron, Meg Gardiner, William Kent Krueger, Jonathan Maberry, Catriona McPherson, David Morrell, Anne Perry, Hank Phillippi Ryan, and more.

Published Reviews
Publisher's Weekly Review: "King and Klinger's strong third Sherlockian anthology (after 2014's In the Company of Sherlock Holmes) features 17 stories from leading authors who draw on Conan Doyle's work for inspiration. The end result is a rich variety of entries, including Tony Lee and Bevis Musson's "Mrs. Hudson Investigates," a post-Reichenbach mystery in comic book format. David Morrell sensitively examines Conan Doyle's obsession with spiritualism in "The Spiritualist," in which the writer has an unexpected encounter in London's Psychic Book Shop, Library and Museum. John Connolly displays his gift for subtle satire in "Holmes on the Range," set in his Caxton Private Lending Library and Book Depository, a home for fictional characters who have "assumed an objective reality" (including Holmes and Watson). Another high point is William Kent Krueger's "The Painted Smile," in which a therapist treats a child determined to have his identification with Holmes taken seriously. Other contributors include Anne Perry, Hallie Ephron, and Gary Phillips. (Oct.) © Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved."
