Sherlock Holmes is one of those iconic characters who have become so embedded in our culture that he transcends space and time. Sir Arthur Conan Doyle and the currently popular series, Sherlock, have tried to kill off the famous character. So what is it about this colorful, egocentric, brilliant, conceited man that engages the imagination?
Sherlock Holmes: Bird Dragging a Broken Wing explores one possible reason why Holmes can be "killed" over and over and still survive - along with his arch nemesis, Moriarty - to become the subject of yet another story. Be prepared to be amazed and awed, to delve into strange cultures, to meet characters almost as colorful and amazing as Holmes himself in this story about Sherlock Holmes.
The author has boldly incorporated iconic figures from other tales, as well, weaving the fabric of a "never-when" world that will intrigue and entice, while titillating the imagination. Suspend disbelief as you enter a slightly anachronistic world in that moment between the sinking of the Titanic and before prohibition. Enter an era that was so brief in history that if you blinked, you would have missed it. Listen, and learn the amazing number of futures that can be packed into a single moment.
