Murder and Magic

The MX Book of New Sherlock Holmes Stories: Part XXXIV - Cover

Anything is possible when Sherlock Holmes investigates a death by magic in my new story A Fatal Illusion. It is just one of the 58 new mysteries collected by David Marcum for the latest three volumes (XXXIV, XXXV, and XXXVI) of The MX Anthology of New Sherlock Holmes Stories, which feature impossible crimes and improbable solutions.

It is a pleasure to be contributing once more to the world’s largest collection of Sherlock Holmes pastiches. Since it began in 2015, this project has been raising money to support the work of the school at Undershaw, the former home of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, and has already donated over $100,000.

A Fatal Illusion appears in volume XXXIV of The MX Anthology of New Sherlock Holmes Stories, and all three new volumes can be pre-ordered in paperback, hardback and electronic formats through Kickstarter. The campaign can be found at, and runs until 8 October 2022, with the books due to be published in November 2022.
