Abaddon explores three different sides of Sherlock in alt.sherlock.holmes

Three novellas offer up fresh new visions of the Great Detective




The Great Detective proves the equal of any mystery as he crosses continents, time and gender in Abaddon’s alt.sherlock.holmes, a collection of new Holmesian fiction exploring wildly different visions of Arthur Conan Doyle’s beloved creation.

The collection follows on from Abaddon’s critically acclaimed 2014 Holmes-themed collection Two Hundred and Twenty-One Baker Streets, and includes three novellas: Jamie Wyman’s The Case Of The Tattooed Bride, Gini Koch’s A Study In Starlets, and Glen Mehn’s The Power of Media.

Abaddon commissioning editor David Thomas Moore said:

Two Hundred and Twenty-One Baker Streets was a highlight of my young career, bringing together some amazing talents to produce some fantastic stories on a topic close to my heart. I’m ecstatic to be returning to the great detective’s rather untidy office (or caravan), and to see more of these wonderful worlds.

The gritty, atmospheric carnival of Jamie’s ‘Hobohemia,’ the up-to-the-minute glitz of Gini’s ‘Single Ladies’ and the sweetly soulful counterculture scene of Glen’s ‘The Power of Media’ drew me relentlessly in, and they were all brilliant authors to work with.”

The novellas will be e-first publications, with a print collection due to hit retail in April 2016. All three authors are available for interview, as is commissioning editor David Thomas Moore.

Alt.sherlock.holmes is to be published in April 2016
