Posted by Steve Emecz on 2nd December 2021
Jay Ganguly’s collection of thirteen traditional Sherlock Holmes stories ‘A Continuum of Sherlock Holmes Stories’ this week won the Best Thriller, Mystery and Suspense award from the NMCBI. Congratulations to Jay for this prestigious award.
A Continuum of Sherlock Holmes stories is available on this site with a share going to our good causes. It’s also available from:
Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson are no strangers to peculiar cases. Be it the dilemma of an Indian princess on the run, perfectly healthy people dropping dead as divine punishment, being challenged to a duel, a heartbroken and suicidal young man, a beautiful woman claiming to be Mrs. Holmes, a little boy who loves his dog, an old Scottish ghost that traditionally haunts husbands of pregnant women – there is very little they haven’t seen (and solved). But, besides regular adventures, there are quite a few questions – Where was Holmes during the Great Hiatus? How was Sherlock Holmes as a child? Who was ‘the most repellent man’? What happened after ‘The Five Orange Pips’? What ingenious crime did Holmes solve by observing ‘the depth which the parsley had sunk into the butter upon a hot day’?
A Continuum of Sherlock Holmes brings together a baker’s dozen of such stories. These are all traditional-style pastiches published in various anthologies from 2015 – 2020, including the MX Book of New Sherlock Holmes Stories. Jayantika Ganguly, better known as Jay, is an international Sherlockian from India who believes there can never be enough Sherlockian stories.
