Buy a Book, Sherlock, and Help Save Undershaw

A montage of Sherlock Holmes featuring Basil Rathbone, Benedict Cumberbatch, Jeremy Brett, and Peter Cushing

Buy a Select Sherlock Holmes title from MX Publishing before Friday, 17 August, and Help Save Undershaw (or buy The Empty House after and still help)

Yes, I’m going to get today’s caption up shortly, but int he meantime here’s some breaking news from MX Publishing.

To celebrate the success of Sherlock Holmes Week, we’ve put together a small collection of the 3 books whose royalties go to the Save Undershaw Campaign.

Sherlock’s Home – The Empty House  (Sherlockology)

An Entirely New Country  (Alistair Duncan)

56 Sherlock Holmes Stories in 56 Days  (Charlotte Walters)

This Friday, 17th August, is the birthday of the publisher behind all these books, and Steve will donate an additional £5 ($8) for each collection that is bought from now to before midnight on Friday. There’s free USA and UK shipping too. Open to USA, UK and Europe.

MX Publishing USA        MX Publishing UK (inc Europe) 

Needless to say, I am violating my budget to add a title or two to my collection (and as gifts what with the Holidays and birthdays approaching). I encourage you to do likewise and spread the word.

On the site above,  the list is color coded to warn about the awful titles and recommend some good ones. Additional research showed the information appeared to be correct to date, but I have added some additional novels and information.

This list includes only published novels or series in which Holmes is at least one of the main characters in at least one book and that are at least 100 pages in length.
