The Reminiscences of Solar Pons

August Derleth

The fourth Solar Pons collection

Once more Solar Pons, walks on stage with a fourth major collection, with an intriguing variety of problems the curious puzzle of the antique sovereign boxes narrated in 'The Adventure of the Mosaic Cylinders'; the riddle of the body in the thirteenth coffin told in 'The Adventure of the Mazarine Blue'; the perplexing matter of the man devoted to British bowlers 'The Adventure of the Hats of M. Dulac'; the incredible plot to foment a religious war 'The Adventure of the Black Cardinal'; the disturbing facts in the murder of a psychic client 'The Adventure of the Blind Clairaudient' and others. Here once again is the Holmesian method and the London of Sherlock Holmes come alive.

Solar Pons has won a place for himself among the outstanding exponents of deduction.

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.
