"Somewhere in the vaults of the bank of Cox and Co., at Charing Cross, there is a travel-worn and battered tin dispatch-box with my name, John H. Watson, M.D., painted upon the lid. It is crammed with papers, nearly all of which are records of cases to illustrate the curious problems which Mr. Sherlock Holmes has at various times to examine."

Two Hundred and Twenty-One Baker Streets (2015)

I guess Sherlock Holmes meeting Elvis was inevitable, and it happens here in this anthology of "Holmesian tales across time and space" edited by David Thomas Moore.

The world's most famous detective, as you’ve never seen him before! This is a collection of orginal short stories finding Holmes and Watson in times and places you would never have expected!  
A dozen established and up-and-coming authors invite you to view Doyle’s greatest creation through a decidedly cracked lens.  
Read about Holmes and Watson through time and space, as they tackle a witch-trial in seventeenth century Scotland, bandy words with Andy Warhol in 1970s New York, travel the Wild Frontier in the Old West, solve future crimes in a world of robots and even cross paths with a young Elvis Presley...
