Young Sherlock Holmes Author Andrew Lane Drops By...

A big, big thank you goes out to Young Sherlock Holmes author Andrew Lane, who really made my day by dropping by Dubray Books Galway location and patiently signing all his books. I'm a big fan of the Young Sherlock Holmes series and was thrilled a) to meet Andrew, b) talk all things Sherlock Holmes, Victorian England and writing a thrilling series and c) to find out the the sixth book in the series, Knife Edge, will be out in October.... and it's set in Galway!!!!! So, keep watching here for upcoming news. We may have something very special for all you Galway fans.

As I said, the next in the series will be available in October. With summer holidays looming ever closer, it's the perfect time to catch up on your Young Sherlock reading. You don't want to be left short when the new one arrives. This series features Sherlock as a school boy and, not only are they great adventure/mysteries, but you get a good look at the events and circumstances that lead up to Sherlock being... well... Sherlock! The drama and characters are tangible and thoroughly in line with the original Conan-Doyle books. Even though they use a more contemporary language and writing style, you never lose the sense of time and place and people. If you haven't read them yet, I recommend you start now...today... you don't know what you're missing!
And by the way, why not check out Lost Worlds, also by Andrew Lane:
"Calum Challenger is a boy with a mission: to track down supposedly mythological creatures and capture their DNA. But while Calum and his friends want to save these beings, an aggressive pharmaceutical company wants to wipe them out. In this fast-paced, high-tech story, Calum and a group of misfit mates – a computer hacker, a freerunner, an ex-marine and a girl with a very big chip on her shoulder – criss-cross the globe, desperately trying to stay one step ahead of their enemy."
Thank you, Andrew... and we'll see you again soon, I'm sure.
