Narrelle M Harris on LJM Owen

The Only One in the World: “Prince Ha-mahes and the Adventure of the Stoned Mason” by LJM Owen Almost as soon as I pitched the idea of The Only One in the World to Clan Destine Press, I began to pester Dr LJM Owen about the idea of a Holmes from ancient history – an area of particular expertise for […]

Narrelle M Harris on Katya de Becerra

The Only One in the World: “A Scandalous Case of Poisoning” by Katya de Becerra Only One publisher, Lindy Cameron, gave me Katya’s name to approach about a Russian-influenced story for the anthology. Katya sent me a great pitch about a female Sherlockian character – Marina Holmesova  – in post-collapse Moscow of the 1990s, featuring her medical student flatmate, Antonina […]

Narrelle M Harris on Lisa Fessler

The Only One in the World: “The Problem of the Lying Author” by Lisa Fessler When Lisa sent me her submission, I was struck at once by how easily Holmes as Holms fit into the world of Wilhelminian Germany in 1893.

Narrelle M Harris on Greg Herren

Narrelle M Harris on Atlin Merrick

The Only One in the World: “S.H.E.R.L.O.C.K.” by Atlin Merrick I loved Atlin’s writing in the Sherlock Holmes realm before we ever met, and when she pitched her idea of a ‘global’ Holmes story for The Only One in the World I knew it would be a beautiful fit for the theme. Atlin has a gift for reimagining how Sherlock […]

Narrelle M Harris on Jason Franks

The Only One in the World: “Sharaku Homura and the Heart of Iron” by Jason Franks When Jason Franks submitted his story, “Sharaku Homura and the Heart of Iron”, to The Only One in the World, I knew we had a great book on our hands.
