    In a sensational follow up to Echoes of Sherlock Holmes and In the Company of Sherlock Holmes, a brand new anthology of stories inspired by the Arthur Conan Doyle canon.

    For the Sake of the Game is the latest volume in the award winning series from New York Times bestselling editors Laurie R King and Leslie S Klinger, with stories of Sherlock Holmes, Dr Watson, and friends in a variety of eras and forms King and Klinger have a simple formula ask some of the world s greatest writers regardless of genre to be inspired by the stories of Arthur Conan Doyle.

    The results are surprising and joyous Some tales are pastiches, featuring the recognizable figures of Holmes and Watson others step away in time or place to describe characters and stories influenced by the Holmes world Some of the authors spin whimsical tales of fancy others tell hard core thrillers or puzzling mysteries One beloved author writes a song two others craft a melancholy graphic tale of insectoid analysis.

    This is not a volume for readers who crave a steady diet of stories about Holmes and Watson on Baker Street Rather, it is for the generations of readers who were themselves inspired by the classic tales, and who are prepared to let their imaginations roam freely.

    Featuring Stories by Peter S Beagle, Rhys Bowen, Reed Farrel Coleman, Jamie Freveletti, Alan Gordon, Gregg Hurwitz, Toni L P Kelner, Willia
