So when the Red Adept Publishing author group got excited over potential new reincarnations of Sherlock now that he's public domain, of course I jumped on board! Everyone was tossing out their ideas for awesome new reimaginings of the legendary detective, and mine was: what if Sherlock were a sentient artificial intelligence?
Lo and behold, I wrote that story! A retelling of one of my favorite Sherlock shorts: The Adventure of the Copper Beeches. And I've posted it on Wattpad, a site for free public reads.
So here it is, the Adventure of the SILICON Beeches! (Subtle, eh?). Check it out: www.wattpad.com/story/75930860-the-adventure-of-the-silicon-beeches.
