A collection of stories, plays and poems about Sherlock Holmes by Arthur Conan Doyle
An absolute must-have for Sherlock Holmes fans, this collection is a treasure trove of little-known pieces and rarities featuring the world's most famous detective, gathered by expert Peter Haining.
Collated with extensive notes and background material, the collection includes twelve unmissable works by Arthur Conan Doyle, ranging from short stories and plays to parodies, poems and commentaries.
Haining's appendices add some very rare material, including a revealing interview with Conan Doyle about his inspiration for Holmes - and his reasons for killing him off. This is an outstanding compilation.
Peter Haining was a prolific editor of anthologies and collections throughout all subgenres of fiction, and he also wrote his own short stories, recently a series about the Second World War. He collected and edited several books about Sherlock Holmes including The Sherlock Holmes Scrapbook and The Television Sherlock Holmes to tie in with the iconic Jeremy Brett series of the eighties and nineties. He died in 2007.
