53 New Traditional Canonical Holmes Adventures Collected in Three Companion Volumes

Throughout the original Holmes Canon, there were hints and teases of other intriguing cases – The Tarleton Murders . . . The Grice-Paterson Curse . . . The Abernetty Tragedy. Watson mentions over one-hundred-and-twenty of these, which have collectively come to be known as The Untold Cases. Now, once again MX Publishing brings us fifty-three of these adventures in three simultaneously published volumes, with all royalties going to support the Undershaw school for special needs children, located at one of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s former homes.

“Somewhere in the vaults of the bank of Cox and Co., at Charing Cross, there is a travel-worn and battered tin dispatch box with my name, John H. Watson, M.D., Late Indian Army, painted upon the lid. It is crammed with papers, nearly all of which are records of cases to illustrate the curious problems which Mr. Sherlock Holmes had at various times to examine . . . .” – Dr. John H. Watson

So wrote Dr. Watson in “The Problem of Thor Bridge” – and ever since, Sherlockians have been seeking to know more about these tales from the legendary Tin Dispatch Box. While Watson’s original Literary Agent only edited the pitifully few sixty stories that make up the original Canon, there have since been literally thousands of traditional adventures about the true Sherlock Holmes – and yet there will never be enough!

In 2018, MX Publishing presented Parts XI and XII of this acclaimed and ongoing series, Some Untold Cases, and then in 2020, Parts XXII, XXIII, and XXIV returned to that theme with Some More Untold Cases. Now that concept is revisited with more Sherlock Holmes adventures that further explore those many tantalizing references to some of Holmes’s other Untold Cases, as mentioned in The Canon.

Join us as we return to Baker Street and discover more authentic adventures of Sherlock Holmes, described by the estimable Dr. Watson as “the best and wisest . . . whom I have ever known.”
