Holmes and Houdini team up again

With Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows the #1 movie this weekend, I thought it fitting to bring news of a new Holmes-Houdini mash-up adventure.

Sherlock Holmes: The Crossovers Casebook in a collection of new Holmes short stories that finds the great detective teaming up with notables of his era such as Arsene Lupin, Lawrence of Arabia, Calamity Jane, Sexton Blake, Colonel Savage (Doc's father), and, yes, Houdini!

The Houdini-Homes story is called THE ADVENTURE OF THE MAGICIAN’S MEETINGS and is written by Larry Engle and Kevin VanHook. In it Holmes and Houdini investigate a mystery involving a fake medium.

Sherlock Holmes: The Crossovers Casebook hits stores January 10, 2012 and can be pre-ordered now on

It's elementary!

UPDATE: The release date for this now shows as March 27, 2012.


  1. This team up sounds too slashy!

  2. At first I thought, "Wow, if only Conan Doyle could see this!" Then I remembered that he ended up hating Holmes, so he probably would have thought that Holmes and Houdini deserved each other ;)
