A Short Holmes for E-Book Readers
The most popular chapter of my book Baker Street Beat has been the Sherlock Holmes pastiche.
“If you don’t read any other Holmes pastiche this year, please, please read the short story 'The Peculiar Persecution of John Vincent Harden,' which has to be the closest in tone and content to a Holmes work that I have read in a long time,” wrote Felicia Carparelli’s Sherlock Holmes Murder Blog.
“One of the best short pastiches that I have read,” said Ross K. Foad, in a “No Place Like Holmes” video review.
I'm delighted to announce that the short story, with a new introduction, is now available as a separate e-book for those who like pastiches but may not be interested in the Baker Street Beat essays. It's available now from Kindle in the U.S. and around the world. Soon it will be in other formats as well.
