Book Giveaway For The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes – Re-Imagined – The Complete Collection

This collected volume reprints all twelve short stories comprising The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes – Re-Imagined book series in one paperback edition. Between its covers the original tales by Conan Doyle have been amusingly illustrated using only LEGO® brand minifigures and bricks. The illustrations recreate, through custom designed Lego models, the composition of the black and white drawings by Sidney Paget that accompanied the original publication of these adventures appearing in The Strand Magazine from July 1891 to June 1892. Paget’s iconic illustrations are largely responsible for the popular image of Sherlock Holmes, including his deerstalker cap and Inverness cape, details never mentioned in the writings of Conan Doyle.

The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes – Re-Imagined — The Complete Collection is available for pre order from all good bookstores including  Amazon USA, Amazon UK, Waterstones UK and for free shipping worldwide Book Depository.

Book Giveaway For The Affairs of Sherlock Holmes by Sax Rohmer – Volume 1

Book Giveaway For The Affairs of Sherlock Holmes by Sax Rohmer – Volume 1

In the 1800s, a number of Victorian and Edwardian writers began writing detective mystery stories – for this was the era when Arthur Conan Doyle was creating Sherlock Holmes tales on a regular basis. Modern authors have attempted to recapture the mystique of Conan Doyle’s adventures by writing “new” Holmes stories; yet these attempts frequently fail to capture the original flavor, because 2013 writers simply don’t think or speak like Victorians. Conan Doyle’s contemporaries wrote about characters of their own invention; nevertheless they sound more like Conan Doyle than do any of his deliberate modern imitators. One of the more successful of these “period” writers was Sax Rohmer. Now in 2016, both Sax Rohmer’s stories and the Conan Doyle canon are all in the public domain. Thus it is now possible to present … Sax Rohmer’s version of Sherlock Holmes.

The Affairs of Sherlock Holmes By Sax Rohmer – Volume 1 is available for pre order from all good bookstores including  Amazon USA, Amazon UK, Waterstones UK and for free shipping worldwide Book Depository.
