It may be of interest that there is, floating about out there, a book called "Ten Years Beyond Baker Street".

It is written by Cay Van Ash, and amounts to Sherlock Holmes investigating activities of the Si Fan in Britain after Smith is abducted, and is sought out by Dr. Petrie. It has a LOT of refereences to both the Fu Manchu canon as well as the Holmes canon, and is very entertaining to the knowledgable. :)
