NOW AVAILABLE! NIKKI NELSON-HICKS’ THE ASTONISHING TALES OF SHERLOCK HOLMES: THE SHRIEKING PITS DEBUTS!
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
A Publisher known for bringing Today’s best talent to breathe life into Yesterday’s classic characters, Pro Se Productions announces the release of the first volume of a new imprint featuring the World’s Greatest Detective. Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s best known creation faces astounding new mysteries and hair raising adventures in The Astonishing Tales of Sherlock Holmes: The Shrieking Pits by Nikki Nelson-Hicks and edited by Dave Brzeski.
“Sherlock Holmes,” says Tommy Hancock, Editor in Chief of and Partner in Pro Se Productions, “is a character that Pro Se readers have requested almost since we opened our doors. And although he’s shown up in a few interesting ways in some of our titles, we’ve been waiting for the right concept, the right group of writers, the right way to present Doyle’s Holmes more as his creator envisioned him. The Astonishing Tales of Sherlock Holmes is the end result. This imprint will feature Holmes and Watson and all that readers find endearing about Doyle’s work in stand alone digest novels. It will also spotlight authors who not only have their own love and affection for Holmes and his canon, but who have a distinct voice that makes them stand out today. That definitely describes Nikki Nelson-Hicks, right down to her own personal deerstalker.”
Nelson-Hicks brings her adoration for Doyle’s character as well as her own fervent imagination to brilliant life in The Astonishing Tales of Sherlock Holmes: The Shrieking Pits. Dr. John Watson discovers that his friend, Sherlock Holmes, has gone missing while hunting fairies in Norfolk with Ulysses K. Todd and his secretary, Mrs. Bernardine Dowell. Concerned that his friend is on a drug induced bender, Watson goes with the pair to Aylmerton to help his friend, only to discover something more sinister is afoot.
What appears a frivolous excursion into myth hunting takes on a different tone when Watson discovers encrypted notes from the Diogenes Club to Holmes. The World’s Greatest Detective is not hunting fairies, but on the trail of Viking silver and a daring heist. Holmes must use every skill at his disposal to discover the secret of the Shrieking Pits while deftly maneuvering around ghost hunters and fairy enthusiasts….and not add to the body count.
“I owe a huge debt,” says Nelson-Hicks, “to my editor, Dave Brzeski, an Englishman who kept this thoroughly modern and very profane American writer in check. He helped to mold and polish this story and without him, The Shrieking Pits would be a duller tale, indeed.”
