Part VII - Eliminate the Impossible: 1880-1891 features contributions by: Mark Mower, Jan Edwards, Daniel D. Victor, James Lovegrove, Gayle Lange Puhl, Thomas Fortenberry, Mike Hogan, Thomas A. Turley, Adrian Middleton, James Moffett, Hugh Ashton, Geri Schear, S. Subramanian, John Hall, Jayantika Ganguly, S.F. Bennett, Steven Philip Jones, Jim French, John Linwood Grant, Mike Chinn, Robert V. Stapleton, Charles Veley and Anna Elliott, and Shane Simmons, with a poem by Jacquelynn Bost Morris, and forewords by David Marcum, Lee Child, Rand Lee, Michael Cox, and Melissa Farnham. In 2015, The MX Book of New Sherlock Holmes Stories burst upon the scene, featuring adventures set within the correct time period, and written by many of today's leading Sherlockian authors from around the world. Those first three volumes were overwhelmingly received, and there were soon calls for additional collections. Since then, their popularity has only continued to grow, with six volumes already released, and now two more, Eliminate the Impossible, featuring tales of Holmes's encounters with seemingly impossible events – ghosts and hauntings, curses and mythical beasts, and more. In "The Sussex Vampire", Holmes tells Watson: "This agency stands flat-footed upon the ground, and there it must remain. The world is big enough for us. No ghosts need apply." In each of the stories presented in this massive two-volume collection, Holmes approaches the varied problems with one of his favorite maxims firmly in place: "... when you have eliminated the impossible whatever remains, however improbable, must be the truth..." But what, exactly, is the truth? 2017 is the 130th anniversary of the publication of A Study in Scarlet, the first recorded adventure of Sherlock Holmes and Dr. John H. Watson. What an amazing journey it's been! In addition to the pitifully few sixty tales originally presented in The Canon, published between 1887 and 1927, there have been literally thousands of additional Holmes adventures in the form of books, short stories, radio and television episodes, movies, manuscripts, comics, and fan fiction. And yet, for those who are true friends and admirers of the Master Detective of Baker Street, where it is always 1895 (or a few decades on either side of that!) these stories are not enough. Give us more! The forty-eight stories in these two companion volumes represent some of the finest new Holmesian storytelling to be found, and honor the man described by Watson as "the best and wisest... whom I have ever known." All royalties from this collection are being donated by the writers for the benefit of the preservation of Undershaw, one of the former homes of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle.

Il grande investigatore di Baker Street sta morendo. Di noia. Ritiratosi nel Sussex, la sua mente geniale sprecata a smascherare ladri di polli, è quasi l'ombra di se stesso. La carenza di delitti fa brutti scherzi, lo sa bene il premuroso dottor Watson, che grazie a un incontro fortuito ha già pronta la cura per rimettere in sesto l'amico: una lunga vacanza sarebbe l'ideale per scuoterlo dalla sua tetraggine. Ma come convincerlo a partire? Magari prospettandogli un mistero inesistente che richieda la sua illuminata consulenza dall'altra parte del mondo, per esempio a Singapore. Il guaio poi, o la fortuna, è che ad attenderli al celebre Raffles Hotel, nel remoto Sudest asiatico, troveranno in effetti un caso di omicidio. Una donna avvelenata con l'arsenico, il marito come principale sospettato, una rosa di altri candidati al ruolo di assassino, e su tutto la cappa mortifera del caldo tropicale... Un vero paradiso, per Sherlock Holmes! ALL'INTERNO, il racconto "Sherlock Holmes e la sfida dell'astrologo" di Samuele Nava.

David Early discovers that his father has died when a hopeful letter sent after a 20-year estrangement is returned marked, “Deceased: Return to Sender.” Going home to the town from which he escaped under threats of death two decades before involves him in uncovering a brutal secret his father had kept since David’s childhood, a time when the earliest days of the Civil Rights Movement began to expose the hatreds and ancient bigotries that were still seething beneath the bucolic crust of Blossom, like some malevolent force focused on David Early, who as a young student was the first white person in the town to march with blacks in protest. Blossom was just another of those junk-cluttered, ramshackle, un-consciously ugly, roadside hamlets lost deep within the evergreen forests of southern Arkansas like atolls in a great green sea, islands in the pines, one of those curious, mysterious southern towns that appear and disappear around curves in washboard roads like dead skunks in ditches. But it is only there that David can find redemption for mistakes he never knew he made.

Previously published as The Mermaid Garden, the internationally bestselling author of The French Gardener presents a complex and irresistibly compelling novel that confirms the remarkable power of love to heal and transform. Ten-year-old Floriana is captivated by the beauty of the magnificent Tuscan villa that overlooks the sea just outside her small village. She likes to spy from the crumbling wall into the gardens and imagine that one day she’ll escape her meager existence and live there surrounded by its otherworldly splendor. Then one day Dante, the son of the villa’s powerful industrialist owner, invites her inside and shows her the enchanting Mermaid Garden. From that moment, Floriana knows that the only destiny for her is there, in that garden, with Dante. But as they grow up and fall in love, their romance causes a crisis, jeopardizing the very thing they hold most dear. Decades later and hundreds of miles away, a beautiful old country house hotel on England’s Devon coast has fallen on hard times after the financial crash of 2008. Its owner, Marina, advertises for an artist to stay the summer and teach the guests how to paint. The man she hires is charismatic and wise and soon begins to pacify the discord in her family and transform the fortunes of the hotel. However, he has his own agenda. Is it to destroy, to seduce, or to heal? Whatever his intentions, he is certain to change Marina’s life forever. Spanning four decades and sweeping from the Italian countryside to the English coast, this new story by Santa Montefiore is a moving and mysterious tale of love, forgiveness, and the past revealed.
