“The MX New Book of Sherlock Holmes Stories” has nearly 100 of the world's leading Sherlock Holmes authors. The anthology includes only traditional stories set in the original Sherlock Holmes period.
Between them, these authors have sold millions of books, and they come together for a common cause. The authors are donating the royalties to the restoration of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's former home, Undershaw. The building was in terrible disrepair and was saved from destruction by the Undershaw Preservation Trust (patron Mark Gatiss). Today the building is the new home of Stepping Stones (a school for children with learning difficulties) and has being lovingly restored to its former glory.
Royalties will go to Stepping Stones for specific projects, such as the restoration of Sir Arthur's study which will be open for visitors outside term time.
