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 a century after Sherlock Holmes stepped from the pages of Arthur Conan
Doyle’s first detective story, the greatest sleuth of all time is still firmly solidly
ensconced in the work of modern literature. Television series, new Holmes writers,
Holmes books, Holmes societies, websites, 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.
Kathleen Kaska is a writer of fiction, nonfiction, travel articles, and stage plays.
She has just completed her most challenging endeavor, The Man Who Saved the Whooping
Crane, a true story set in the 1940s and 50s, about Audubon ornithologist Robert
Porter Allen whose mission was to journey into the Canadian wilderness to save the
last flock of whooping cranes before encroaching development wiped out their nesting
site, sending them into extinction. Published by University Press of Florida, the
book is scheduled for release in 2012.
Kathleen also writes the award-winning Sydney Lockhart Mystery Series set in the
1950s when women were caught between the dichotomy of career and marriage; when fashion
exploded with a never-before-seen flair; and movies and music had the country dancing
with gusto. Her first mystery, Murder at the Arlington, won the 2008 Salvo Press
Manuscript Contest. This book, along with her second mystery, Murder at the Luther,
was selected as a bonus-book for the Pulpwood Queen’s Book Group, the largest book
group in the country.
