Upon Sherlock Holmes' return to London after the Great Hiatus, he thwarted the murderous plans of Colonel Sebastian Moran, but what happened after that? Here, for the first time, learn what really drew Holmes back to London, the truth about the strange Vanishments and the East End Ghosts, and how the entirety of Time & Space was contained in a single night. In other stories, we learn exactly what Mrs Hudson's life was like with the most troublesome lodger in London, what Watson witnessed in lonely Antarctic seas on the way back from Afghanistan in 1880, how Inspector Lestrade solved an apparently impossible crime without the help of "Mr Sherlock bloody Holmes," the travails of a 1950s television actor caught up in the life of the world's most famous consulting detective, the true events of the Battle of the East India Docks during the infamous War of the Worlds, and how a brave little dog channeled his inner Sherlock Holmes. "Sherlock Holmes: The Coils of Time," completely revised for this edition, is back in print and available to fans after a long hiatus; the other tales in this book have never before been published in any form.

From the Back Cover:

The return of Sherlock Holmes to London after the "Great Hiatus" was revealed to the world in Dr John H Watson's famous tale "The Adventure of the Empty House," but was that the whole story? Why did Holmes in the dark about many elements of his plan?  Since Holmes was being keenly observed by Colonel Sebastian Moran and his men, and a close watch was being kept on 221B Baker Street, how could Holmes have convinced him he was at home when he was not? Why did Watson, in mentioning the news of the day, omit the strange disappearances of London citizens and the reports of the "East End Ghosts?" With the publication of "Sherlock Holmes: The Coils of Time" we can finally read the whole story of what happened after the apprehension of Colonel Moran, and how all of time and space fit into a single night. In other stories, we learn just what Mrs Hudson's life was like, what Watson saw on his way back from Afghanistan, how Lestrade solved an impossible crime, the travails of a life in television, the perils of impersonating a Martian, and how a dog channeled his inner Sherlock Holmes.
