In Sherlock Holmes and the Adventure of the Blank Page, Leah Guinn uses observations gleaned from four years of reviewing Sherlockian fiction (and many more of reading it) to put together an entertaining and useful handbook on how to create a good pastiche. Prospective authors will learn what a good Canon-faithful story requires, pitfalls to avoid, how to pull off a successful “alternative universe,” research aids, and various other bits and bobs to help them write a successful “further adventure”—and have fun doing it. Whether your goal is is to be a published paticheur, understand why that otherwise well-written story left you unmoved or unconvinced, or to answer the question of why the pastiche, Sherlock Holmes and the Adventure of the Blank Page will inspire you to write with confidence and read with insight and perception.
