Airship 27 Prod., and Cornerstone Book Publishers are very excited to announce the release of their newest title, SHERLOCK HOLMES, CONSUTLING DETECTIVE Vol. One.

Victorian England, a time of historical significance as the world was poised expectantly for the coming wonders and terrors of the new century. Amidst this atmosphere of anticipation and intrigue, one man emerged as a beacon of logic and cold, calculating reason in an unsettling time: Mr. Sherlock Holmes, Consulting Detective. Now he returns in five brand new mysteries by four of today’s finest writers.

A famous soccer player is found dead in the club house. An unidentified stowaway is murdered aboard a U.S. Navy warship, while another man is found asphyxiated in an empty, locked room. These are several of the twisted puzzles challenging the Baker Street sleuth as he once again takes up the hunt on the fog ridden streets of London accompanied, as always, by his faithful ally, Dr.Watson.

Writers Aaron Smith, Andrew Salmon, Van Allen Plexico and I.A. Watson have set forth exciting new mysteries done in the traditional style of the original Holmes stories by his creator, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. There are no space aliens here nor howling werewolves, simply good old fashion whodunits. So arm yourself for danger and all manner of villainy as once again, the game is afoot!

This premier volume features a dramatic cover by artist Mark Maddox, with interior illustrations and design by Rob Davis. Edited by Airship 27 Prod. founder, Ron Fortier.
“Sherlock Holmes is clearly the most beloved fictional character ever created,” Fortier offered in discussing the new book. “We’ve assembled a collection of five terrific stories we are sure will entertain Holmes fans around the world.”

I'm please and proud to be associated with such a top notch publication. It was an honor to work with the 2 most popular fictional characters of all time. And I know that everyone associated with this book feels the same way. That's why the book came out as great as it did. I hope everyone out there will check the book out and let us know what you think of the tales, the wonderful interior illustrations, the mind-blowing cover or whatever else catches your eye about the book. We'd love to hear from you!

Thanks for posting this PR, Bish.
Much appreciated. And yes, I know their are two small typos -

the other MYSTERIES.
Sorry about that. Doesn't change
the fact that Andrew and his colleagues wrote 5 amazing SH adventures. Hope folks will find the book.
