If that’s your cry, you’ll be pleased to learn that there five totally new adventures coming this fall in the book Sherlock Holmes – The Golden Years, by Kim Krisco.
These five tales take place after Holmes and Watson believe they have gone into retirement. This new action-packed, historically accurate series of stories clearly show that some of their most remarkable and dangerous adventures await them.
The saga begins with The Bonnie Bag of Bones that lead the infamous duo on a not-so-merry chase into the mythical mountains of Scotland.
Curse of the Black Feather continues the adventure in which Holmes teams up with the Irregulars, and a gypsy matriarch, to expose a diabolical “baby-farming” enterprise.
Maestro of Mysteries begins with a summons to Mycroft’s office and ends with a deadly chase in Undertown, far beneath the streets of London.
The Cure that Kills sees Holmes and Watson in hot pursuit of the diabolical Ciarán Malastier, racing across America, and pitting them against the largest detective organization in the world.
In the final story, The Kongo Nkis Spirit Train, Holmes and Watson travel to the Dark Continent to derail a “spirit train” that ensnares people’s spirit, and enslaves their bodies.
In the end, this wonderful new chronicle sheds new light on greatest mystery of all, Sherlock Holmes himself.

What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
I read mostly non-fiction most of my life. So, I suppose it was natural that, when I turned to writing for a living, I initially wrote non-fiction. Then, something happened when I moved into the isolated Rocky Mountains, I began reading fiction almost exclusively — all kinds: science fiction, fantasy, action adventure, etc. I thought about writing fiction for a long time before I actually sat down to my laptop. I suppose, this is because I instinctively knew that fiction is harder to write than non-fiction. Of course, before writing Sherlock Holmes – The Golden Years, I read all of the Sherlock Holmes stories, and more than that, I read everything that Sir Arthur Conan Doyle wrote . . . and he wrote a lot! It was a “warm-up” before the “race.”
To hone my writing skills I wrote my first Holmes pastiche — The Bonnie bag of Bones (which appears in this collection). I shared it with some fellow authors and they encouraged me to publish it. When I look ed around for a publisher I immediately found the world’s largest publisher of Holmes pastiches and the like — MX Publishing in London. I submitted a query letter, followed by my story and . . . now I am published!
