“Sherlock Holmes is not who you think he is. In this brilliant imagining by Gordon McAlpine, Holmes must battle for his very existence, with the world as we know it at stake. Prepare to have your mind blown!”
─Leslie S. Klinger, editor of the Edgar® Award-winning New Annotated Sherlock Holmes
“The most post-modern take on Sherlock Holmes since Chabon’s The Final Solution. McAlpine’s work is perfect for those who enjoyed the Will Ferrell film Stranger Than Fiction, but wished it wasn’t a comedy.”
“A joy to read from start to finish. McAlpine has crafted a thrilling, believable rendering of our beloved detective in his twilight years. I can’t recommend this novel enough.”
—Mitch Cullin, author of A Slight Trick of the Mind, the basis for the film Mr. Holmes
“It’s to author McAlpine’s credit that he makes what might have been an arch exercise into a joy to read…. It’s a fascinating read, smart and entertaining for all that it’s based on those quantum mechanics. That’s right, it’s Holmes confronting alternate universes, and it’s wonderful.”
—Booklist starred review
PRAISE FOR WOMAN WITH A BLUE PENCIL:
"A brilliantly structured labyrinth of a novel--something of an enigma wrapped in a mystery, postmodernist in its experimental bravado and yet satisfyingly well-grounded in the Los Angeles of its World War II era. Gordon McAlpine has imagined a totally unique work of 'mystery' fiction--one that Kafka, Borges, and Nabokov, as well as Dashiell Hammett, would have appreciated."
—JOYCE CAROL OATES
"McAlpine's creative talent is rare and this novel is an exceptional literary treat."
—Shelf Awareness STARRED review
"A masterpiece of metafiction....I don't know the last time I read a book that made me think that much AND had that good of an ending."
—MysteryPeople PICK OF THE MONTH
PRAISE FOR HAMMETT UNWRITTEN:
"A refreshing, brisk, yet fully and brilliantly realized work... that is nearly perfect and manages to pay homage to Hammett's celebrated work, while still being an incredibly engaging read for the uninitiated.... [An] inspired tale that delivers as expertly drawn meta-fiction and a compelling mystery."
—Reviewing the Evidence
"This mash-up of biography and mystery novel is fascinating.... An engaging, highly imaginative book."
