The Return of Solar Pons

August Derleth

The third Solar Pons collection

Solar Pons is back in a third major collection with thirteen tales ranging from the complex problem set forth in 'The Adventure of the Lost Dutchman' to the events chronicled in 'The Adventure of the Swedenborg Signatures' or the exploits of 'The Adventure of the Penny Magenta', 'The Adventure of the Trained Cormorant', 'The Adventure of the Little Hangman', 'The Adventure of the Remarkable Worm', 'The Adventure of the Camberwell Beauty'. From a puzzle with supernatural overtones 'The Adventure of the Devil's Footprints', to the early exploration of atomic secrets 'The Adventure of the Rydberg Numbers' the tales also have a double pastiche not only of the Master of Baker Street, but also of the sinister Oriental of Limehouse! These tales will bring back long-missed Baker Street days.

August Derleth

August William Derleth (24 February 1909 4 July 1971) was an American writer and anthologist. Though best remembered as the first book publisher of the writings of H.P. Lovecraft, and for his own contributions to the Cthulhu Mythos and the cosmic horror genre, as well as his founding of the publisher Arkham House (which did much to bring supernatural fiction into print in hardcover in the US that had only been readily available in the UK), Derleth was a leading American regional writer of his day, as well as prolific in several other genres, including historical fiction, poetry, detective fiction, science fiction and biography. Derleth wrote more than 150 short stories and more than 100 books during his lifetime.
