Welcome to 223B Baker Street The debut of Sherlock Holmes in the pages of The Strand magazine introduced one of fiction’s most memorable heroes. Arthur Conan Doyle’s spellbinding tales of mystery and detection, along with Holmes’ deep friendship with Doctor Watson, touched the hearts of fans worldwide, and inspired imitations, parodies, songs, art, even erotica, that continues to this very day.
“The Best Sherlock Holmes Parodies and Pastiches: 1888-1930” collects 33 pieces — short stories, poems, and cartoons — published during the whole of Conan Doyle’s literary career. Also included are much of the original art and 340 footnotes identifying obscure words, historical figures, and events that readers were familiar with at the time.
Peschel Press’ 223B Casebook series — named because they’re “next door” to the original stories — is dedicated to publishing fanfiction created by amateur and professional writers during Conan Doyle’s lifetime.
