The Moriarty Paradigm

Sherlock Holmes, the pipe-smoking, cocaine-taking detective whose adventures were faithfully recounted by his loyal companion Dr Watson, is undergoing something of a make-over. Just as the BBC reinvented him for a modern television audience, Fringeworks is reinventing him as a steampunk hero, bringing him to life in an ongoing series of short stories, novellas, novels and gamebooks revisiting the original canon of Sherlock Holmes.

Known as The Moriarty Paradigm, this series will be set in an alternate British Empire created by the genius of James Moriarty, time traveller.

The Moriarty Paradigm is a series comprised of commissioned stories only, but is open to enquiries from established writers (contact adrian@fringeworks.co.uk) in relation to the following:

CANON MASH-UPS: We are retelling the original Holmes canon as Steampunk mash-ups, starting with A Scandal in Bohemia reimagined as A Scoundrel in Bohemia. Each tale will be a 40:60 split between original text and new content, and each tale will require a slightly different title to reflect the steampunk component.

GAMEBOOKS: We are developing a gamebook system to be used within the Moriarty Paradigm. We expect the final books to be between 15 and 20k in length.

NOVELS: We have commissioned eight novels – a combination of mash-ups and derived works. We will consider pitches for original novels from established writers.

NOVELETTES/NOVELLAS: We will be publishing original novelettes in serial form, alongside canon mash-ups. We will also consider original novellas in the same series.

ROLE PLAYING: It is hoped that the Moriarty Paradigm will form the basis of a role-playing game system. Enquiries from established designers are encouraged.
