A collection of hundreds of Sherlock Holmes puns amassed over decades and stolen from a host of sources. The wordplay may be familiar, but the settings and characters are all original to the sources cited. The puns that have made it into the book are all Sherlockian narratives. Each is a tale describing events featuring Holmes characters, not simply a comment or an observation. We warn traditional Holmes fans up front, you will be annoyed and offended. If you are not, then the authors simply have not found your particular hangup - yet. Pick a number, they will get to you in a later edition.

About Bob Burr

The junior editor, Philip K. Jones (An illdressed Vagabond), contrived to continue posting bootleg puns, supplied by his venerable Fagin, until asked by the long-suffering listmeister of the Hounds to cease as well. Now in a moment of madness a publisher is unleashing their collective insanity on an unsuspecting public. Mr. Jones has created and maintains the Database of Sherlockian pastiches, parodies and related fiction, which is posted on-line. He also produces reviews of Sherlockian books, aired in a number of publications. Now he will fear the wrath of the reviewers himself.
