    Since his first appearance in 1887, Sherlock Holmes has been the quintessential English sleuth, alongside his loyal companion and biographer, Doctor John Watson.

    But what if they had come from some other place in the world, or another time? How would they differ from Conan Doyle’s creations? How similar might they remain?

    The 13 stories in this intriguing anthology re-imagine Holmes and Watson in new cultural contexts, in different genders or sexualities, and in stories that are rich in foreign detail yet still reflect their origins.

    Fourteen writers, with specific cultural or historic expertise, explore the possibilities in mysteries set in Germany, Ireland, India, C17th England, Australia, South Africa, Russia, Poland, USA, Ancient Egypt, Viking Iceland, and even the entire world.
