64 new, traditional Sherlock Holmes Stories making up the latest three volumes in the world's largest collection of Sherlock Holmes Stories – XIX, XX and XXI.

In 2015, the first three volumes of The MX Book of New Sherlock Holmes Stories arrived, containing over 60 stories in the true traditional Canonical manner, revisiting Holmes and Watson in those days where it is “always 1895” . . . or a few decades on either side of that. That was the largest collection of new Holmes stories ever assembled, and originally planned to be a one-time event. But readers wanted more, and the contributors had more stories from Watson’s Tin Dispatch Box, so the fun continued.

Now, with the release of Parts XIX, XX, and XXI, the series has grown to over 450 new Holmes adventures by nearly 200 contributors from around the world. Since the beginning, all contributor royalties go to the Stepping Stones School for special needs children at Undershaw, one of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s former homes, and to date the project has raised nearly $60,000 for the school.

As has become the tradition, this new collection of 64 adventures features Holmes and Watson carrying out their masterful investigations from the early days of their friendship in Baker Street to the post-War years during Holmes’s retirement. Along the way they are involved in some fascinating mysteries – some relating Untold Cases, others sequels to Canonical adventures, and a number progressing along completely unexpected lines.

Join us as we return to Baker Street and discover more authentic adventures of Sherlock Holmes, described by the estimable Dr. Watson as “the best and wisest . . . whom I have ever known.”

Featuring - Roger Riccard, Matthew White, Kevin P. Thornton, Chris Chan, Nick Cardillo, MJH Simmonds, Craig Stephen Copland, Will Murray, Ian Ableson, Thomas A. Turley, David Marcum, Dick Gillman, David Friend, Arthur Hall, Brenda Seabrooke, James Moffett, Robert Stapleton, Andrew Bryant, Will Murray, Andrew Bryant, Peter Coe Verbica, Sean M. Wright, and Tim Gambrell, with a poem by Christopher James, and forewords by John Lescroart, Roger Johnson, Lizzy Butler, Steve Emecz, and David Marcum

Rating: 8.5 out of 10.

This is an excellent collection of new Sherlock Holmes Stories. I mean who doesn’t want more of Sherlock Holmes & Watson and their epic adventures. It is brilliantly put together.

Even though all these stories are written by different writers ( all shown above each story) they are all quite close to the classic masterpieces of Sherlock Holmes stories.

I love that all the stories are short and sweet. And you can read them whenever the mood takes your fancy ( good for those mood readers). Or you can read the whole Annuals as a whole.

I also want to point out the information or history at the beginning of Sherlock Holmes annuals. It was well written and was fascinating to hear more about the history of Sherlock Holmes, Watson, Baker Street and behind the stories.

I applaud how much work has gone into these books, from all the different Writers, Editor and the Publisher.

All in all the three books we’re incredible with some wonderful timeless stories amongst them that you can read over and over. You can step in and out of Bakers Street whenever you fancy with untold stories, new and old. All extremely well written and well-edited.

I give this set of annuals a rating of 9.5/10
