Sixty authors. One-thousand two-hundred pages. Three volumes.

If you're one of those people who will never get enough Sherlock Holmes, you'll want to pick up this book. Though all of the stories are new, they're set between the years 1881 and 1929, and will feature Holmes and Watson on cases just like the original stories by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle.

The proceeds will go towards the restoration of Undershaw, the house where Doyle wrote most of the Holmes stories after the Reichenbach Falls.

The house is being converted to a school for children with learning disabilities. Outside of the school year, the house will be open to Sherlock fans. Doyle's office in particular will be on display.
Save Undershaw was a project spearheaded by Mark Gatiss (you'll recognize him as Mycroft on the BBC's Sherlock; he's also one of the show runners). The publisher, Steve Emecz, commented:
"I don’t think we will ever see a collection on a scale like this again. The authors are so passionate about Undershaw and its new role as a special school, which is why so many have taken part".

Doesn't that sound awesome?!

The book will be released on October 1st, and it's already available for pre-order on Amazon. Or, if you don't want to wait that long, you can donate to their Kickstarter (to cover expenses), pledges will get it a month early!

Well done Sherlockians!
