Come meet noted Sherlockian Les Klinger, the prolific Edgar-winning author and editor of many books including the famous three-volume "Annotated Sherlock Holmes".
Les recently won the battle to "free Sherlock Holmes" from the copyright dispute that long clouded rights to Doyle's work.
As a renowned Sherlock Holmes expert, Les served as advisor on both Robert Downey, Jr. films, and is a prominent, active member of the Baker Street Irregulars.
Les will introduce and read from his latest book "In the Company of Sherlock Holmes" which he co-edited with Laurie King.
Also on hand will be acclaimed author Nancy Holder and Denise Hamilton - Nancy is a four-time winner of the coveted Bram Stoker award for horror,and author of many Buffy the Vampire series tie-ins. Denise is an American crime novelist, journalist and editor of the Edgar-award winning anthologies Los Angeles Noir and Los Angeles Noir 2: The Classics. Nancy will read from her story.
All stories in the book contain some connection or reference to the Great Detective and include offerings from such literary stars as Sara Paretsky, Jeffery Deaver, Michael Connelly, and many more.
This volume is sure to be a collector's item and should be on every Sherlockian's bookshelf. And a great Christmas present as well.
