Review of The Demon of the Dusk

This is a truly great Holmes story! Kudos are given for the remarkable final reveal. I found the book to be fast paced but the characters very well developed. Action adventure, mystery and a hint of a ghost story combine to create a tale well worth the reading!

I give the book five stars…

East Wind Coming : A Sherlockian Study Book

East meets West as one of the most talented British Sherlockian scholars, John Hall and a Japanese member of the Baker Street Irregulars, Hirayama Yuichi argue important Sherlockian questions. One offers the other three questions, and the other answers them with all their Sherlockian knowledge. They are serious Sherlockian battles between an English Knight and Japanese samurai! This volume also includes Hirayama’s Sherlockian papers published in The Musgraves, The Baker Street Journal, The Canadian Holmes and The Shoso-in Bulletin.

“ Excellent book of Sherlockian studies written by a Japanese Holmesian / Sherlockian Hirayma Yuichi, a member of the famous American society The Baker Street Irregulars called “A Japanese Vase” among them, Japanese Sherlock Holmes Club, Sherlock Holmes Society of London and several other societies of the same specialization. Mr Hirayma met with Sherlock Holmes when he was eight, ie. several decades ago. Then he found thick volumes of Japanese children’s adaptations of the stories of the famous detective. And since that time lasts his devotion. I appreciate Mr Hirayma’s broad culture knowledge and fondness for classic detective stories applied on Japanese milieu. As well as his patriotism that I like, too. As a non-native English-speaker (which I am too) he indicates our common problems – we like Sherlock Holmes, Victorian England, English language and way of life, but must inevitably cross the language barrier during our reading and writing studies.
I have learned a lot from this book – on Sherlock Holmes, as well as on Japan – and broaden my horizons.” –
Ales Kolodrubec – Czech Society of Sherlock Holmes
