Les Klinger Wins Prestigious Awards for Authorship

Les Klinger and Laurie R. King co-edited In the Company of Sherlock Holmes: Stories Inspired by the Sherlock Holmes Canon (Pegasus Books, 2014), a collection of new stories by various authors.  This book was the subject of the litigation known as Klinger v. Conan Doyle Estate, Limited, in which Klinger was victorious in the 7th Circuit U. S. Court of Appeals in “freeing” the characters of Holmes and Watson from copyright protection (and last November, the Supreme Court of the United States denied certiorari in the case, allowing the 7th Circuit’s ruling to stand).  This month the book received two prestigious awards, the “Silver Falchion” award from the regional convention known as “Killer Nashville” and the Anthony award from BoucherCon, the long-running national event, both in the category of “Best Anthology” for 2014.
