Out Now: The Secret Files Of Sherlock Holmes By Kate Lear

Now HERE'S a treat - not just for fans of wonderfully-written erotica but for die-hard Sherlock Holmes fans as well: The Secret Files Of Sherlock Holmes By Kate Lear

The hunky young Watson and the handsome, youthful Holmes fall into each other's arms in this delirious pastiche that pays homage to the underlying homosexual subtext in the Sherlock Holmes tales. This unique collection explores the famously sexual tension between Sherlock Holmes and Dr. John Watson in Arthur Conan Doyle's original short stories. The Secret Files of Sherlock Holmes focuses on the gaps and silences in Watson's narratives, offering possible ways in which the pair could have first become lovers, and then recounts further their amorous couplings and erotic escapades. There have been many pastiches of Sherlock Holmes since the original stories first appeared. But while several of these have hinted at a sexual relationship between Holmes and Watson, none have explored this idea so explicitly.  Here is a book that will be enjoyed by fans of the Conan Doyle canon as well as readers of historical and erotic fiction.
