"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 Adventures of Creighton Holmes (1979)

A collection of short stories featuring the exploits of Sherlock Holmes's grandson. I love how the cover promises "An even greater kick than The Seven-Per-Cent Solution."

Recently discovered papers have proved beyond a shadow of a doubt that the great detective Shrlock Holmes has a son. And later, a grandson.
The grandson's names was Creighton. From boyhood on, it was Creighton Holmes's ambition to follow in the hallowed footsteps of his illustrious forebear. 
How brilliantly he succeeded, and what baffling mysteries and stunning solutions filled his casebook, now at last are reveled in adventures that take us back to Baker Street and the eternal war against masters of crime and monsters of evil.

The Case of the Scientific Recluse

Ned Hubbell actually published this peivately in hardcover (apparently with illustrations by his wife) privately a few years earlier...and did not live to see the paperback published. He was in his 90s.
