Upcoming Crossover: The Albino's Treasure
This upcoming pastiche by Stuart Douglas pits Holmes and Watson against villains called the Albino and the Lord of Strange Deaths. The Lord of Strange Deaths is one of Fu Manchu's appellations. The Albino is almost certainly Sexton Blake's foe Zenith the Albino. Douglas has also apparently written a story for an anthology of Zenith stories that portrays him as having taken Fu Manchu's elixir vitae. Douglas also contributed a story to the anthology Encounters of Sherlock Holmes where a character compares Holmes favorably to Hewitt and "that foreign chap Dupin."
