Step out of your hansom cab and onto the foggy streets of Edwardian London with The Sherlock Holmes Triviography and Quiz Book, a comprehensive collection of fun and challenging trivia about the adventures of the inimitable detective whose intellectual feats overwhelmed criminals and Scotland Yard.
More than 100 years after Sherlock Holmes stepped from the pages of Arthur Conan Doyle’s first detective story, the greatest sleuth of all times is still firmly solidly ensconced in the work of modern literature. Television series, new Holmes writers, websites, Holmes books, Holmes societies, and numerous films have kept Sherlock Holmes fans intrigued with Holmes and Watson lore.
The Sherlock Holmes Triviography and Quiz Book offers brainteasers on each story and novel about the detective and his associate Dr. Watson, as well as background on how Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s own experiences contributed to his literary work. For example, I recount the details of the night Conan Doyle and Oscar Wilde met at a party and how a challenge from a mutual friend resulted in Conan Doyle’s The Sign of Four, and Wilde’s The Picture of Dorian Grey.
