Sherlock Holmes is the most famous detective that never was. He represents all that is rational and logical in a detective. Arthur Conan Doyle also had an abiding interest in the occult but he never really mixed the logic of Holmes with his occult interests except when a story ended with a "couldn't it have been"…such as "The Hound of the Baskervilles" or "The Sussex Vampire". However, once Doyle's detective hit the magazines stands others did take their detectives into the world of the occult solving crimes of the paranormal kind. In this anthology, Sherlock Holmes now tackles the world of the paranormal as well as the mundane and he sometimes meets other famous detectives of his times.

From official release/information:

Product Description: The fabled tin dispatch box of Dr. John H. Watson opens to reveal eleven all new tales of mystery and dark fantasy. Sherlock Holmes, master of deductive reasoning, confronts the irrational, the unexpected and the fantastic in the weird worlds of the Gaslight Grimoire.
