In London, 1892, a well-guarded young nobleman goes missing under distressing circumstances. The nobleman, one Baron Renfrew, is actually Prince Albert Victor, eldest grandson of Queen Victoria. He disappeared while he was visiting a house of ill repute, with bodyguards both inside and outside the building - with his inside bodyguard rendered unconscious and the trussed-up corpse of a brutally murdered young woman left behind. Hoping to find the missing Prince and to clear him of the murder, the royal family is looking for a brilliant - and, more importantly, discreet - investigator. Sherlock Holmes, alas, is out of the country so, at the suggestion of his brother Mycroft, they turn to the only man who just might be more brilliant - Dr James Moriarty.

With an introduction by Leslie S. Klinger, editor and compiler of all three volumes of "The Annotated Sherlock Holmes", this collection of ten original stories brings light to one of the least examined periods in the life of the great detective - his time in the former colonies, the United States. This Holmes is a youthful one - a young man not yet set upon his course in life and in his famous lodgings at 221B Baker Street. In Richard Lupoff's "Inga Sigerson Weds", he's come to America to represent the family at his sister's wedding. In "My Silk Umbrella", Mark Twain narrates his fateful encounter with Holmes at a baseball game in Hartford, Connecticut; Steve Hockensmith narrates the meeting of the young William Gillette and the object of his later, most famous turn upon the stage; and, Peter Tremayne reveals the intersection of Holmes and the Irish in the 19th century American midwestern landscape. With further stories by Marta Randall, Rhys Bowen, Peter Beagle, and others, the legend, the mythology and even the history of the world's greatest detective is further enhanced by these charming, clever and mystifying tales.

Set in an alternative reality where "All the President's men" do not get caught at Watergate, this "shockingly believable" novel presents the frightening scenario of what could happen if a powerful but paranoid American chief executive goes out of control.

When the young apprentice Delbit Quint is "bought" by Dr. Faineworth, he arrives in an alternate history version of New York City to help the good doctor with his investigation of "Exxa." This beautiful young woman had just appeared from nowhere, without clothing, on the streets of Gotham two weeks earlier, her memories of herself and her background completely lost. But when they go to her cell, they find it empty--save for her loose garments. Thus begins a glorious adventure in parallel universe-jumping, as Delbit discovers the reality of the world in which he lives--and the many other strange and interesting variations of Earth surrounding it in the Paraverse. Not all of those who've developed the capability of jumping to these alternate realities are friendly, however. And ALL of them want Exxa, who has the unique ability of moving from one world to the other without mechanical assistance. Great SF and fantasy adventure by a master storyteller

Among the world's great fictional villains, Prof. James Moriarty, Sherlock Holmes's chief nemesis, stands alone. But how evil was he? These four stories suggest that Moriarty wasn't evil at all--and the reason for Holmes's characterization of him as "The Napoleon of Crime" was quite simple: Moriarty was the smarter of the two, and Holmes just couldn't stand it Great Victorian mystery tales THE TRIALS OF QUINTILIAN: Three Stories of Rome's Greatest Detective, by Michael Kurland. Set at the height of the Roman Empire, these tales chronicle one of the few actual crime-solvers known to have lived in the ancient world. Quintilian, a teacher, jurist, and friend of Emperor Vespasian, was also something of a detective. The first tale in this volume, "Blind Justice," is based on an actual case he's said to have solved while acting as defense counsel in a trial. Great historial mysteries

How many men from W.A.R. does it take to stop 2000 raging desert warriors, fifty top of the line Soviet tanks, and untold numbers of drug-crazed assassini? Six, plus one beautiful, plucky young British woman determined to rescue a kidnapped brother. Peter Carthage battles an outlaw army and a man with more than human powers in this thriller by two time Edgar Award nominee Michael Kurland that accurately foresaw the future. Thirty years later the plot of this novel would be reflected in all-too-real headlines. A small, oil-rich Arab nation is about to be invaded by a superior enemy force led by unstoppable tanks. While in the shadows a fanatic religious leader waits like a spider with his own army of suicide killers. The U.S. can not intervene. So, it's up to debonair agent Peter Carthage and the men from W.A.R. (Weapons Analysis and Research, Inc.), a company with an ultra-scientific approach to warfare - if they feel the cause is just. Fans of Jason Bourne, James Bond, I Spy, and The Man from U.N.C.L.E. will love Edgar Award-Finalist Peter Carthage, the Man from W.A.R.

From the imaginations of Barbara Hambly, Cara Black, Peter Tremayne, Richard Lupoff, and Michael Kurland, among others, another side of the famous fictional detective is finally revealed.
