The Day They Met

19 Apr

Wendy C. Fries pondered the concept that the friendship between Sherlock Holmes and John Watson is something that would exist across time.  That it was something that was meant to be.  So she sat down and wrote 50 short stories of how these two friends could possibly meet which was published as “Sherlock Holmes and John Watson: The Day They Met”.

The ways of meeting are many, varied, and deeply entertaining.

From John Watson finding Sherlock Holmes asleep in a morgue drawer, to meeting whilst Watson performed first aid on Lestrade, the book is packed with wonderful, entertaining, and, above all, believable alternate meetings.

Wendy C. Fries is well known in the Sherlock fan fiction world as Atlin Merrick, so trust me, this lady can write!

“The Day They Met” is a  charming little book which should delight all Sherlockians of all ages.

    Thank you so much Margy (and Narrelle). It’s impossible to imagine a world in which They Are Not!

      Given that Sherlock Holmes & John Watson are my favourite literary characters, I sometime have nightmares where Arthur Conan Doyle was actually a highly successful doctor & never turned to writing.
