To Make Your Christmas Bright: “SHERLOCK HOLMES in MONTAGUE STREET: Sherlock Holmes’s Early Investigations” – Originally Published as the complete Martin Hewitt Adventures by ARTHUR MORRISON
Edited, Holmes-ed, and with Original Material by DAVID MARCUM
It was long been theorized among Sherlockians that Martin Hewitt was actually a young Mycroft Holmes, Sherlock’s older brother. However, careful examination reveals that these tales are actually narratives of Sherlock Holmes’s own investigations during those pre-Baker Street days when he lived in Montague Street. To paraphrase Holmes: “[The Martin Hewitt stories are] a very tricky thing. [They] may seem to point very straight to one thing, but if you shift your own point of view a little, you may find it pointing in an equally uncompromising manner to something entirely different.” In this case, the evidence happily points to more adventures of Sherlock Holmes. These are all twenty-five of the Martin Hewitt Stories, collected together for the first time, taking Arthur Morrison’s original publications and presenting them as Sherlock Holmes adventures. Enjoy! The Game is afoot!
