FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
AUTHOR STEPHANIE OSBORN DEBUTS NEW HOLMES SERIES!
SHERLOCK HOLMES AND THE MUMMY’S CURSE DEBUTS!
Pro Se Productions, a leading publisher of Genre Fiction, proudly announces the debut of its latest novel featuring perhaps the most popular detective ever created, Sherlock Holmes. Author Stephanie Osborn, creator of The Displaced Detective series, which also features Holmes, brings her exceptional skill and Sherlockian knowledge and love for the character to a new series for Pro Se. Sherlock Holmes and The Mummy’s Curse, Book One of Sherlock Holmes: Gentleman Aegis is now available in print and digital formats.
Tommy Hancock, Editor in Chief of Pro Se Productions, states, “Sherlock Holmes isn’t simply the definitive detective. He is a character that has not only captured the imaginations of millions for over a century, but he also has untold potential in terms of stories to be told. And Stephanie Osborn is ideal for tapping into the wondrous worlds that Holmes and Watson can still explore. This first volume in Stephanie’s new series involves a Holmes and Watson we are all very familiar with at the beginning of their careers and near the start of their relationship. What Stephanie crafts with Sherlock Holmes and the Mummy’s Curse is both a book that any Holmes fan would want to include in their library and a work that she leaves her own mark on. She takes Holmes and expands his world, pushes the boundaries we know his universe within, and creates an adventure that literally readers will not be able to put down!”
Sherlock Holmes and the Mummy’s Curse is the debut volume in a new imprint from Pro Se Productions – Holmes Apocrypha. Holmes Apocrypha will feature works that take Holmes onto adventures and in directions that go beyond Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s original canon, including supernatural stories, science fiction interpretations, and more.
Holmes and Watson. Two names forever linked by mystery and danger from the beginning.
Within the first year of their friendship and while both are young men, Holmes and Watson are still finding their way in the world, with all the troubles that such young men usually have: Financial straits, troubles of the female persuasion, hazings, misunderstandings between friends, and more. Watson’s Afghan wounds are still tender, his health not yet fully recovered, and there can be no consideration of his beginning a new practice as yet. Holmes, in his turn, is still struggling to found the new profession of consulting detective. Not yet truly established in London, let alone with the reputations they will one day possess, they are between cases and at loose ends when Holmes’ old professor of archaeology contacts him.
Professor Willingham Whitesell makes an appeal to Holmes’ unusual skill set and a request. Holmes is to bring Watson to serve as the dig team’s physician and come to Egypt at once to translate hieroglyphics for his prestigious archaeological dig. There in the wilds of the Egyptian desert, plagued by heat, dust, drought and cobras, the team hopes to find the very first Pharaoh. Instead, they find something very different…
