Okay, I will admit that I have been rather lax of late, as far as this blog is concerned. I don't know where the time has gone! However, something I just heard on a podcast from The Reduced Shakespeare Company inspired me to look up the work of Nicholas Meyer, who not only directed the greatest Star Trek film of all time (Star Trek II: the Wrath of Khan), but also wrote a trilogy of Sherlock Holmes pastiches. The best known of his Holmes novels is, of course, The Seven-Per-Cent Solution, which was also made into a film by the same name. The other two are not as well known, although I'm sure most Sherlockians have heard of them: The West End Horror and The Canary Trainer.
When I looked those three books up just now, though, I also found that Meyer will be releasing a FOURTH Holmes pastiche in October 2019: The Adventure of the Peculiar Protocols. You can read more about the upcoming novel at the publisher's website. I enjoyed Meyer's earlier novels, so I imagine I will have to check the new one out when it is released!
