Not for the faint of heart.
Not for the conservative.
Not for the intolerant.
Not for those afraid of change.
This one is for the romantic Sherlockians.
For those who crave something new.
For those in need of a fresh adventure.
For the Johnlocked (but not exclusively).
For those unafraid to walk on grounds where angels fear to tread.
And especially for those who believe that Sherlock Holmes could not only love, but love well.
Improbable Press has been launched, under the able hand of Atlin Merrick, a much-celebrated Sherlockian fan-fiction writer. Here - check it out.
I am well aware that many Sherlockians balk at the idea of Sherlockian erotica, and wish to stay away. It's a matter of choice, of course, and those who wish to stay away are welcome to do so. However, I have the good fortune to personally know some of the folks behind Improbable Press - and I do not hesitate to say that these are full-blooded Sherlockians; people who love and respect Sherlock will all their hearts. Sherlock Holmes and his romantic adventures are in good hands. So, if the only concern is that this endeavour would somehow cheapen the detective we know and love, rest assured: this is a labour of love.
Everyone deserves to be loved; even (or especially) Sherlock Holmes. And personally, there's nothing more I'd like to see than for him to be happy, if only in the pages of a book.
I, for one, eagerly look forward to the new books!
