Mystery Weekly Magazine is Highlighting Sherlock Holmes

1) Read 3 new Sherlock Holmes Adventures
2) Sherlock Holmes meets the elephant man?
3) How to build a Ghost…

Get the answer to this and more in October’s Mystery Weekly Magazine. Their highly anticipated Sherlock Holmes themed issue hits digital newstands on October 1, and marks the 13th monthly issue by this relatively new crime fiction publication.

If you’ve read the complete works of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle and were left wanting more, then you might be delighted to learn that there remains a flourishing Sherlock Holmes pastiche writing community.  And after reading some of these new stories, you might further be surprised by how true to the original author’s voice they can be; how well they can conjure up the sights, sounds and smells of Victorian London.

A shining example is found in the first story of this issue:  “The Adventure Of The Missing Princess”, by Michael Mallory. It begins when a medical colleague visits Watson at his surgery, with a story about a missing princess and, believe it or not, the Elephant Man. He asks if he could persuade his friend Sherlock to look into the matter discretely. Holmes makes his appearance in typical dramatic fashion, and quickly connects the dots, leaving the reader marvelling at how he or she had overlooked the obvious.

This story is accompanied by several more Sherlock stories and articles, and a few very compelling non-Sherlock stories as well. All of the stories in this issue are excellent, and I can’t describe them all here. But one of my personal favorites is “Acid Test” by Allen Lang, a refreshingly original story about an amateur scientist who tries to create ghosts in his basement laboratory. This is a story you won’t want to miss.

If you buy just one issue of Mystery Weekly this year, then this should be it. It will be available in the Kindle store, on the digital newstand Magzter, through our Apps in the app store, on Amazon and via PayPal from our website (  A few of the stories will also be sent out in our weekly newsletter.
