Ian Watson has written several stories in the the New Sherlock Holmes anthologies from Airship 27.  His stories have been some of the best it he series and he has won an award for this work. Ian has an amazng affinity for the characters and te period.  His kowledge of Victorian England.  Now he has written a new novel in which he brings together Sherlock Holmes, Harry Houdini, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, and Oscar Wilde!  This adventure includes a great mystery, fantastic over-the-top characters, and the actual meeting of Holmes with his "literary agent" (and creator) Conan Doyle. The background for the story is an actual event when Oscar Wilde and Sir Arthur met to have lunch with a famous american publisher.  Into the mix comes Holmes who is in good company with the witty Wilde and the the physician author who breathed such literary life into the chronicles of Holmes exploits.  This is another home run (or a Six in Cricket) for Ian watson!
