Welcome to 223B Baker Street
The debut of Sherlock Holmes in the pages of "The Strand" introduced one of fiction's most memorable heroes. Arthur Conan Doyle's spellbinding tales of mystery and detection and Holmes' deep friendship with Dr. Watson touched the hearts of fans worldwide, inspiring imitations, parodies, songs, art, even erotica, that continue to be produced and avidly enjoyed today.
"Sherlock Holmes Edwardian Parodies and Pastiches II: 1905-1909" collects 40 pieces published during the middle phase of Conan Doyle's life. Some were written by schoolboys, reporters, doctors, and other amateurs, and vary widely in quality, but many professional writers turned out stories, such as "Banjo" Paterson, Max Beerbohm, Lincoln Steffens, Jacques Futrelle, Maurice Leblanc, and "Charlie Chan" creator Earl Derr Biggers.
We've also included the stories' original art and over 270 footnotes identifying obscure words, historical figures, and events that readers were familiar with then but are forgotten today.
Peschel Press' 223B Casebook Series -- named because they're "next door" to the original stories -- is dedicated to publishing the fanfiction created by amateur and professional writers during Conan Doyle's lifetime.
