News: Authors for Sherlock Holmes and Doctor Was Not anthology

As previously posted, IFWG Publishing International is very excited to collaborate with IFWG Publishing Australia for the publication of a unique, ‘what if’ anthology in early 2018, titled ‘Sherlock Holmes and Doctor Was Not’. The premise is simple enough; what if Sherlock Holmes had a different offsider than Doctor Watson?
