"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."

The Misadventures of Sherlock Holmes (1989)

A collection of unconventional Holmes stories and parodies by notable authors. There's even one by John Lennon.

This hugely entertaining volume--essential reading for Sherlockians and a feast of amusement for everyone else--is a collection of parodies, burlesques, pastiches and "unofficial" adventures.
