Issue Description
Kick off your yearly Sherlockian celebration with EQMM’s February issue, on sale just in time for the eminent sleuth’s Twelfth Night birthday parties. This annual tribute includes another in the series of Holmes parodies by Terence Faherty, from the “unedited” accounts of Dr. Watson (“The Man with the Twisted Lip”). Then, join us as we snake through the London streets of Barbara Nadel’s tale “Our Little Secrets,” about an infamous contemporary of Holmes’s.

Looking elsewhere in time, we join an ancient Alexandrian magistrate trying to get out of a tricky political situation (in Thomas K. Carpenter’s “The Trouble with Virgins”), and a brother doing what he can to protect his family in 1950s New England (in Brendan DuBois’s “Leap of Faith”).

Ireland is the setting for O. A. Tynan’s “Accessory to Murder,” which evokes some classic movies in a most unusual way; and Jane Haddam adds a touch of sinister humor to the issue with “Crazy Cat Ladies.”

Not just the game is afoot, but also “The Hunt,” in Rob Brunet’s baleful story set on a lake-bound island—and while we’re in lake country, we also have Michael Haynes’s “Lakeside Memories,” which takes place at a vacation home with a past, turned ominous with a hint of the supernatural. The issue also features “Fall of a Fantasy,” Jim Allyn’s Black Mask narrative, fraught with emotional tension and dark deeds, and “After the Fall,” Bram Dehouck’s twisty Passport to Crime story. Books reviewed in this month’s Jury Box all have a Sherlockian theme. This is a three-pipe issue—don’t miss it!
