In recent years interest in Sherlock Holmes has burgeoned due to new cinema films and television series. Unfortunately, these have distorted the beloved originals by either making them action-heroes, transplanting them to modern times, or both. PoorMoreIn recent years interest in Sherlock Holmes has burgeoned due to new cinema films and television series. Unfortunately, these have distorted the beloved originals by either making them action-heroes, transplanting them to modern times, or both. Poor old Holmes has been mangled and distorted to provide fodder for many ludicrous yarns and unbelievable concepts. In complete contrast, Alan Stockwell sincerely imitates the authentic Conan Doyle style and his tales are credible and entertaining. The conventions are observed and nothing anachronistic appears in his work. These stories exude the essential period ambiance, and the reader will find himself comfortably at home in the late Victorian era. Alan Stockwells first collection of Sherlock Holmes stories garnered much praise from aficionados when first published in 2003 and is now in its third edition. In response to many requests, he now offers a collection of ten new Sherlock Holmes stories told in the authentic manner. Here you will find the dreadful ordeal of Oscar Wilde, the escape of the wild wolves, and the Surrey man-monkey among the tales. And Dr Watson at last reveals the long-hidden secret of the politician, the lighthouse, and the trained cormorant.
