Excited to share the pre-order link for An Improbable Truth: The Paranormal Adventures of Sherlock Holmes. This anthology from Mocha Memoirs Press features 14 stories from modern authors that test the famously skeptical detective against genuinely otherworldly cases. I’m happy to have a reprint of my lycanthropic tale “The Adventure of the Missing Trophy” included in that number.
The story concerns what happens when Holmes is summoned to the case of a woman that has somehow been mauled in a locked room on an upper floor. Watson observes the seemingly impossible circumstances while, as usual, Holmes seems to know much more about the case than he’s letting on.
Editor A.C. Thompson has done a wonderful job gathering together these 14 takes on how London’s famous consulting detective might react to threats of the supernatural, and each author has put their own entertaining spin while staying true to the spirit of Doyle’s character. I’ll write more on that later.
