[caption id="attachment_423" align="alignright" width="192" caption="Watson's Afghan Adventure"][/caption] Kieran McMullen was a real find for us as a Sherlock Holmes publisher. A great writing style combined with excellent levels of detail on military history and military techniques. His first pastiche outing 'Watson's Afghan Adventure' published in January goes from strength to strength. Rave reviews from around the world now include the Sherlock Holmes Society of London. "Fewer people have considered the early life of John H Watson in any depth. Kieran McMullen, author of Watson’s Afghan Adventure is a former professional soldier and a specialist in American military history – an...

Libro español sobre Arthur Conan Doyle, Libro español sobre Sherlock Holmes, Sherlock Holmes and Arthur Conan Doyle, Sherlock Holmes en español -

El perro de Baskerville es, sin duda, el relato de Sherlock Holmes más conocido de Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. Ha sido llevado al cine, al teatro y a la televisión y ha mostrado el talento de algunos de nuestros mejores actores. Un tratamiento similar ha recibido otro relato de Doyle, titulado The Lost World (El mundo perdido), que protagoniza un personaje llamado Professor George Challenger. Sin embargo, la cuestión de la posible influencia de dos de sus amigos (a saber, y respectivamente, Bertram Fletcher Robinson y Dr. George Turnavine Budd) en estos dos relatos ha sido, en comparación, mucho menos...

It was no surprise to friends and family of Felicia Carparelli that the main character in her new thriller 'Murder In The Library' is a Sherlock Holmes fan. Felicia has been a big Holmes fan for as far back as she can remember. The book is released on 28th April and was a natural choice for MX Publishing as the UK's main publishers of modern Holmes pastiches. Managing Editor Steve comments: "We rarely publish straight crime fiction (as we mostly do pastiches and historical books), but we couldn't resist Felicia's fun thriller because of it's winding story around Sherlock Holmes....

[caption id="attachment_399" align="alignright" width="97" caption="A Study In Crimson"][/caption] A Study in Crimson is the second adventure of Mrs. Watson and Emily Fanshaw. Already dubbed 'The Female Sherlock Holmes' Molly Carr's character is proving very popular with Holmes fans. Here is the review from the leading Sherlockian Group in Wales - The Deerstalkers of Welshpool. "Molly Carr has produced another book about her two female detectives, mutated from minor characters in the Holmes stories. I think it helps if you have read the first book [The Sign of Fear], as that explains the strange hypothesis that Watson was a fake. The...

As a publisher we have about 100 books and about 60 authors now, and sometimes we publish a book that we use ourselves. That's the case with the new book from Alex Buckley - Ssh! Lose Weight in 20 Minutes. I couldn't help but feel that Alex was talking about me in his description of a 40 year old who spends time commuting, in front of a computer, likes my food and wine and doesn't do enough exercise. Sound familiar? Alex was fat - in fact, he was clinically obese and his GP had told him so. He'd tried every...

I was there when it all started. Colour Print On Demand (POD). In the less than glamorous surroundings of a printing exhibition (IPEX 2002), a groundbreaking machine called the Xerox iGen3 was unveiled - and many others have followed. But in 2011 is colour POD still out of the reach of book publishers?   <<read more>>

19th century thrillers, arthur conan doyle, Book Launches, max pemberton, Sherlock Holmes and Arthur Conan Doyle, victorian literature, wheels of anarchy -

First published in 1908, Wheels of Anarchy - The Story of An Assassin was written by Max Pemberton, a friend of Arthur Conan Doyle, from notes of another friend Bertram Fletcher Robinson. Fans of James Bond should take a look at this fascinating novel which makes Bond seem a little tame. Considering it was written at the turn of the last century, the subject of international terrorism is surprisingly modern. A recent review of the reprint is published in this month's District Messenger. "Robinson or Pemberton may have discussed the story with their friend Conan Doyle, but the narrator, Bruce...

Keith Hern loves Zimbabwe - the people, places and wildlife and one of his dreams was to showcase the 'real' Zimbabwe for the outside world to see. Following his long and painful battle with throat cancer which led to Keith's first book 'Bangers and Mash' he decided that the best way to achieve his goal was to write a book - or rather create a book of photos that reflected the true nature of the country. Zimbabwe in Pictures was published in December 2010 and the tourism board from Zimbabwe has just reviewed it; "Thank you very much for your...

In 2011 we finally have the irrefutable evidence behind the success of the Sherlock Holmes character and it was unveiled by Devon author and Holmes investigator, Paul R Spiring. In a local newspaper articles from the Herald Express and Western Morning News and in a BBC Wales radio interview Paul revealed how he came across the letters that prove that Arthur Conan Doyle had more than a little help with the key story that launched Holmes worldwide. Winding the clock back to the early 20th century and Arthur Conan Doyle had killed Holmes off and while the character had achieved...
