The Memoirs of Schlock Homes by Robert L. Fish
Back from the brink of death, Homes tackles eleven baffling mysteries in his own peculiar style
When Dr. Watney last saw Schlock Homes, the great detective was flinging himself over a waterfall. Since then, Watney has lived quietly at 221B Bagel Street, mourning the death of the most unique detective the world had ever known. That all changes on the day Homes comes back from the dead. His fall was just a ruse, he announces, and it is time to get back to work. In such classic tales as “The Adventure of the Hansom Ransom” and “The Adventure of the Big Plunger,” Homes and Watney chase the most ingenious criminals of the age—and never come close to catching them.
These immaculate pastiches of the great detective’s adventures are far more than mere parody. In Schlock Homes, Robert L. Fish has created a character for the ages: a detective who understands that brilliance means knowing you’re right—even if the whole world disagrees.
“Unpardonably and outrageously funny . . . Small masterpieces of adroit and outrageous plotting.” —Anthony Boucher on the Bagel Street Mysteries
