Editorial Reviews

Review

"Hundreds of Holmes pastiches, ranging in quality from godawful to brilliant, are published every year. A few pastiche writers -- Nicholas Meyer, June Thomson and Hugh Ashton, for example -- sometimes are good enough to make you forget you're not reading the Master himself, having Watson narrate a lost but newly discovered story from some secret bank box or barrister's drawer." Dallas Morning News

From the Author

One of the joys of the exploration of the Holmes papers has been the increasing knowledge I have gained of the character and accomplishments of John Watson. Often regarded as little more than a sidekick to his more illustrious companion, it is interesting to see how often he serves as an accomplished investigator in his own right, while remaining modest about his abilities. Indeed, Holmes very often seems to rely on Watson's work in order to achieve the solution of a case. 

In the Hound of the Baskervilles, Holmes remarks to Watson,"It may be that you are not yourself luminous,but you are a conductor of light." I would contradict Holmes' opinion here, and maintain that Watson, though by no means the shining beacon exemplified by Holmes, nonetheless still manages to provide sufficient illumination to shed light on the mysteries presented to his more famous friend. 

There are still more sealed envelopes in the deed box awaiting perusal, but the papers are becoming brittle in the Japanese climate, and Watson's handwriting seems to have deteriorated over time. It may be a matter of a few months before I am able to decipher more of the stories lurking at the bottom of the box.
