Beloved Humorist. Best-Selling Author. ... Consulting Detective.
Now it can be told: Mark Twain's adventures with Sherlock Holmes, Watson, Mycroft, and Irene Adler.
As part of his autobiography, Samuel Clemens dictated seven stories that he later ordered burned. Discovered at a Pennsylvania farm auction and edited by Pulitzer-Prize winning editor, Bill Peschel, they uncover the Mark Twain nobody knew: who interfered in a marriage proposal, organized a boxing scam, and went grave-robbing. A Twain who also caroused with a young John H. Watson in San Francisco's Chinatown; needed Holmes' help with a blackmail plot; tangled with Mycroft Holmes and kidnappers in Morocco; and ran up against Irene Adler and a vengeful German officer in Heidelberg.
Most of these stories -- four featuring Holmes, and one each with Watson, Mycroft Holmes, and Irene Adler -- appeared in the 223B Casebook series collecting Sherlockian parodies and pastiches. These tales are now available in this exclusive complete edition from the Peschel Press.
