Summary

Sherlock Holmes and John Watson have wandered far from the light of Victorian gas lamps. As Holmes and Watson, they've tangled with Nazis, as Sherlock and John, they roam the corridors of New Scotland Yard. In a world of so many fresh adventures, why not fresh beginnings to those adventures?

From an 1879 Kabul train station to a King's College lecture theatre in 2015, The Day They Met includes stories both classic and contemporary, offering 50 intriguing new ways that the world's most legendary partnership might have begun.

Beautiful

I'm in love with Wendy C Fries stories. I love her writing style, I love her tales, but what I love the most is how she loves her characters.

In this short stories, you can see this love shine brightly in each and every alternate encounter of Sherlock Holmes and John Watson.

The stories vary in every way you can imagine: timeline always, but also age, occupation, place and circumstances. But they are always them, they are always Sherlock and John, Holmes and Watson, their friendship always the single fact that makes them better and happier.

The fact this book is read by Verity Burns only add to its loveliness. Her interpretation is sheer perfection.

If you love these character, in whatever version you love them, you'll love this book.

Very charming

Lovely collection of vignettes imagining Holmes and Watson in a variety of times and situations. Author has a vivid imagination and a gift for storytelling. The reader has a pleasant and expressive voice.
