Lost Sherlock Holmes story discovered in man's attic - Telegraph

Lost Sherlock Holmes story discovered in man's attic - Telegraph | 21st Century Information Fluency | Scoop.it
An historian has unearthed the first unseen Sherlock Holmes story in more than 80 years that Sir Arthur Conan Doyle wrote to help save a town bridge.


Walter Elliot, 80, found the 1,300-word tale starring the famous detective in a collection of short stories written for a local bazaar.
The wooden bridge in the Scottish town of Selkirk was destroyed by the great flood of 1902 and locals organised a three-day event to raise funds for a new one in 1904.

Dennis T OConnor's insight:

This is no hoax. This find says something reassuring about printing on paper.  


Surprisingly, modern telecommunications are part of the picture as Conan Doyle's portrayal of 'editorial demands' set's the scene.  


I suspect most modern writers and nearly all bloggers are part- time workers at  "Institute of  Fiction" and reminded that card carrying members of  the 'Faculty of Imagination". 


The article includes a link to the full manuscript.  I've read and re-read all of the Sherlock Holmes stories many times. What a treat!
