#WhatAreYouReadingWednesday(11): Sherlock Holmes: The Lost Stories by John H. Watson, Edited by Tony Reynolds


This week I am reading Sherlock Holmes: The Lost Stories that contains nine short stories that were chronicled by Dr. John H. Watson but never published. Ranging from the giant rat of Sumatra mystery to the mystery of the missing rubies, these stories will take the readers back to the dreary London scene of the late nineteenth and early twentieth century to 221b Baker Street where Dr. John Watson and his eccentric genius friend, the infamous Sherlock Holmes solve cases ranging from the bizarre to the downright impossible!


Here is more about Sherlock Holmes: The Lost Stories by John H. Watson, Edited by Tony Reynolds:


Release Date: 2014 by Jaico Publishing House


Blurb:



The recent decease of one of the descendants of Dr. Watson has brought to light his personal papers. These include a number of stories that Dr. Watson suppressed at the time for various reasons. As all involved are long dead, the inheritor has agreed to the publication of a set the most interesting adventures.

Overall, The Lost Stories is a collection of entertaining, canonically consistent tales whose intentionally understated plots are refreshingly limited in scope, relishing in the quotidian of everyday ‘bad behavior’ – opposed to falling prey to that great pastiche writer’s temptation of crafting a short story of epic proportions populated by an abundance of big name historical figures and playing the ‘what really happened’ game where Massive Historical Event X actually hinged on Holmes’ secret intervention.

TONY REYNOLDS, makes Holmes come alive, he has been able to capture the style of Arthur Conan Doyle’s writing in this book, a series of nine adventures. The fact that this novel captures Doyle’s writing style is one of the greatest advantages for this series of stories.
