When a disturbance shatters the silence of the Diogenes Club, Sherlock Holmes must learn what happened to the dead man in the Reading Room. Yet, how much can even the great detective learn when all the witnesses insist on following the club’s rules and will not not say a single word?

A traditional Sherlock Holmes story in the style of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle.

The collection including this story is being funded through a Kickstarter campaign.

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

In 2015, the first three volumes of The MX Book of New Sherlock Holmes Stories arrived, containing over 60 stories in the true traditional Canonical manner, revisiting Holmes and Watson in those days where it is “always 1895” … or a few decades on either side of that. That was the largest collection of new Holmes stories ever assembled, and originally planned to be a one-time event. But readers wanted more, and the contributors had more stories from Watson’s Tin Dispatch Box, so the fun continued. Now, with the release of Parts XXXI, XXXII, and XXXIII, the series has grown to nearly 700 new Holmes adventures by over 200 contributors from around with world. Since the beginning, all contributor royalties have gone to the Undershaw school (formerly Stepping Stones) for special needs children at Undershaw, one of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s former homes, and to date the project has raised nearly $100,000 for the school – as well as helping provide a world-wide awareness of its mission.

As has become the tradition, this new collection of 62 adventures features Holmes and Watson carrying out their masterful investigations from the early days of their friendship in Baker Street to the post-War years during Holmes’s retirement. Along the way they are involved in dozens of fascinating mysteries, all progressing along completely unexpected lines.

Join us as we return to Baker Street and discover more authentic adventures of Sherlock Holmes, described by the estimable Dr. Watson as “the best and wisest … whom I have ever known.”

62 new traditional Holmes adventures in three simultaneously published volumes

The game is afoot!

All royalties from this collection are being donated by the writers for the benefit of the preservation of Undershaw, one of the former homes of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle.
