The MX Book of New Sherlock Holmes Stories – XXXIV to XXXVI

Another 58 new traditional Sherlock Holmes stories in three new volumes of the world’s leading Sherlock Holmes collection, perfect for the fan of Holmes, Victorian era fiction, or detective stories.

In 2015, The MX Book of New Sherlock Holmes Stories burst upon the scene, featuring traditional Canonical adventures set within the correct time period, and written by many of today’s leading Sherlockian authors from around the world. Those first three volumes were overwhelmingly received, and there were soon calls for additional collections. Since then, their popularity has only continued to grow. And now we present a new three-volume set. Like 2017’s two-volume set, Eliminate the Impossible, and 2019’s three-volume Whatever Remains . . . Must Be the Truth, “However Improbable . . . .” features tales of Holmes’s encounters with seemingly impossible events – ghosts and hauntings and crimes and events that cannot have happened – but apparently did!

The fifty-eight stories in these three companion volumes represent some of the finest new Holmesian storytelling to be found, and honor the man described by Watson as “the best and wisest . . . whom I have ever known.”

As always, all royalties from this collection are being donated by the writers for the benefit

of the preservation of Undershaw for special needs students, (formerly “Stepping

Stones”,) one of the former homes of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle.

As of June 2022, these books, through the continuing efforts of the amazing contributors and the wonderful worldwide supporters, have raised over $100,000 for the school!

“David Marcum is the reigning monarch of all things Sherlockian . . . .” John Lescroart – New York Times Bestselling Author

“Among  the best I must number David Marcum, who, by this point has written  more Holmes stories than Doyle himself.” – Nicholas  Meyer – New York Times Bestselling Author
