A man claiming to be the fictional detective from Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's stories has surfaced in London and is hot on the trail of a murderer. He has accused the chief of police of the crime and has only a short amount of time to solve it!
A surreal science fiction short story where the entire world has been the mental thrall of a single entity known only as The Master for 500 years. People grow up under a constant and personalized illusion that is all-consuming to them. This illusion encompasses all senses. It can augment the real world, causing another person to appear as a great monster or a friendly teddy bear. Other times the inebriant is fed original sensory input that is unconnected to the real world while their body remains static.
