Sherlock Holmes FAQ
All That’s Left to Know About the World’s Greatest Private Detective
By Dave Thomson
The Sherlock Holmes FAQ is a one-stop guide to over a century’s worth of mystery, mayhem, and most of all, deduction. Digging deep inside the manifold worlds of Sherlock Holmes, the FAQ is a dramatic and detailed digest of the Baker Street sleuth in all of his many guises, as TV and radio star, movie phenomenon, and, of course, literary giant.
Chapters investigate his predecessors and his successors, and discuss the influence that Holmes has had not only on other writers, but on real-life police procedures as well. The London that he perambulated in deerstalker and cloak is laid bare, plus the life and other fascinations of Holmes’ creator, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, are mapped out in all their foggy, darkened atmosphere.
We meet giant hounds and fearful foes, common crooks and misdirected souls. Ghosts appear in these pages, and vampires, too – and more puzzles, conundrums, and mysteries than any mortal detective could ever hope to solve. But Holmes, as we shall see, was no mere mortal. And Sherlock Holmes FAQ is the story of his immortality.
Dave Thompson, ex-pat British writer, has penned over one hundred books. He is the author of the highly acclaimed Your Pretty Face Is Going to Hell and Hearts of Darkness: James Taylor, Jackson Browne, Cat Stevens, and the Unlikely Rise of the Singer-Songwriter. He has also written books on Cream, Kurt Cobain, Genesis, Jeff Beck, and Deep Purple (the list goes on), and he has been a contributor to Rolling Stone, Goldmine, MOJO, All Music Guide, and more.
