Sherlock Holmes and John Watson: The Day They Met
Fifty new ways the world's most legendary friendship might have begun…
Sherlock Holmes and John Watson have wandered far from the light of Victorian gas lamps. As Holmes and Watson they've tangled with Nazis, as Sherlock and John they roam the corridors of New Scotland Yard.
In a world of so many fresh adventures, why not fresh beginnings to those adventures?
From an 1879 Kabul train station to a King's College lecture theatre in 2015, The Day They Met includes stories both classic and contemporary, offering fifty intriguing new ways that the world's most legendary partnership might have begun.
Writing as Wendy C Fries, The Day They Met is Atlin Merrick's first book of re-imaginings of other ways the friendship of Sherlock Holmes and John Watson may have begun. It was followed by The Night They Met.
