Three very different Baker Streets. Three very different Sherlocks. Three extraordinary new cases.

Brilliant, distracted, sarcastic, abrasive, superior, fiercely loyal and—above all—ferociously principled, Sherlock Holmes is a hero for all times. Every era has its thieves and monsters, its exploiters and abusers, and in every era the detective of Baker Street will piece together the clues and bring the guilty to book.

In alt.sherlock.holmes, the creators of Two Hundred and Twenty-One Baker Streets have invited three talented writers to bring startling visions of the Great Detective and the redoubtable Doctor Watson to the page: as a carnival owner and fortune teller in the ’thirties American Dust Bowl, as a drugged-up, tuned-out weirdnik in ’sixties New York City, and as the most irregular consultant in present-day Hollywood.

The game’s afoot! Whether hunting a vandal, a killer, or a shadowy conspiracy, in Indiana, California or New York, Holmes and Watson are on the case.

About the author

Although she’s best known for science fiction, paranormal, horror, and fantasy, Gini Koch’s first literary love is mystery and suspense, and her first literary crush, at the tender age of 7, was on Sherlock Holmes. Gini writes the fast, fresh and funny Alien/Katherine “Kitty” Katt series for DAW Books, the Necropolis Enforcement Files series, and the Martian Alliance Chronicles series for Musa Publishing, and as G.J. Koch she writes the Alexander Outland series. Gini’s made the most of multiple personality disorder by writing under a variety of other pen names as well, including Anita Ensal, Jemma Chase, A.E. Stanton, and J. C. Koch. Her dark secret is that pretty much everything she writes has a mystery in it – because mysteries are the spice of literary life.
