Local cartoonist, musician and writer Dicky Neely has recently had his first book published. The Case Of the Grave Accusation, a Sherlock Holmes pastiche, is set to be released June 27, 2011. The book is already listed on Amazon UK and Amazon U.S. They are taking orders. The publisher is MX Publishing in London, England.
Dicky describes the book this way.
“When I heard that a British author had released a book claiming that Holmes author, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, had plagiarized the story of The Hound of the Baskervilles from his friend and associate Bertram Fletcher Robinson, murdered him and committed adultery with his wife Gladys, I thought to myself, this is a case for Sherlock Holmes!”
Thus was born the idea for this book where Holmes and Watson are transported into the future, that is today, and they investigate the allegations and defend their creator. As far as Holmes is concerned this was an existential crisis for the Baker Street duo.
