About the Book

R. Wolfgang Schramm has created three science-fiction-style Sherlock Holmes stories in the Conan Doyle manner. Fans of the great consulting detective will enjoy Holmes’s and Watson’s adventures as they attempt to unravel some of the most baffling and well-known mysteries of the last century. Follow along with Holmes and Watson as they attempt to find the Loch Ness monster, uncover the secrets of the Shroud of Turin, and find the explanation for the enormous explosion that occurred in the Tunguska region of Russia in 1908. Although a work of fiction, Schramm has made every effort to remain true to the historical facts in each of these three narratives. What actually happened is left as an exercise for the reader to determine, for history is not necessarily what happened but what has been recorded; thus, what is contained in these works is only one possible version of the truth. Even though Holmes and Watson are fictional characters, these stories in which they play a part are not without validity since they are based on actual facts, and Holmes’s methods of problem solving mirror our modern use of the scientific method in the sciences and in criminal investigation. The Apocryphal Cases of Sherlock Holmes is lavishly illustrated. It contains 20 sketches by Artist Anne Foreman that literally bring the characters to life.
