"When you have eliminated the impossible, whatever remains, however improbable, must be the truth."
In these recently discovered accounts, sealed and hidden from prying eyes for almost eighty years, Dr. John H. Watson puts pen to paper once more, as he accompanies his friend, that most rational of detectives, Mr. Sherlock Holmes in the utterly irrational realm of the otherworldly, the uncanny, and the supernatural.
Enter the gaslit world of Holmes and Watson - a world caught halfway between the bright glare of science and logic and the darker clutches of superstition and fear - a world of unknown creatures, secret seances, ancient curses, and forbidden knowledge - where the enquiring mind of the world's first consulting detective must search for the answer to some new and challenging questions...
What was it about the loathsome contents of a match-box that sent an apparently fearless man stark staring mad?
How can Sherlock Holmes be called upon to investigate a murder where the victim is his client, and where the murder has already taken place?
What is it that lies in the darkness of an ancient burial mound, and can it really bring about death to any who would disturb its resting place?
Can mere words in a stolen manuscript really open men's minds to maddeningly terrifying visions of a world beyond our own?
In order to find the solutions to these problems, Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson may yet discover that sometimes it is not so easy to eliminate the impossible!
"Daniel McGachey deserves praise for honoring Holmes and respecting Watson’s writing. In Sherlock Holmes: The Impossible Cases, he enables the reader to be privy to a fascinating and entertaining archive. There have been other speculations about Holmes’ encounters with the occult; but in this volume, the voice of Watson loudly and clearly sets the record straight." - Sheila Merritt, Hellnotes.com.

About the Author
Daniel McGachey began writing ghost stories to amuse himself and friends. These tales subsequently appeared in "The BHF Book of Horror Stories" and "Black Book of Horror" series of anthologies, and “Filthy Creations” magazine, while his radio plays have been broadcast as part of the mystery and suspense series "Imagination Theater." He also reviews television and radio adaptations of M.R. James’s stories for "The Ghosts and Scholars M.R. James Newsletter." In 2009 Dark Regions Press published his first collection, "They That Dwell in Dark Places" - dedicated in part to M.R. James, whose works influenced both the period and atmosphere of the stories. Moving from James to another literary hero, his second Dark Regions collection pitted Conan Doyle’s thoroughly rational detective against the utterly irrational forces of the supernatural in "Sherlock Holmes: The Impossible Cases." Forthcoming works include "Wraithvale" and "In the Silence Before the Scream" (both for Dark Regions) and the Haunted Library publication "Ex Libris: Lufford".
