Maria C. Veiga-Hayzen, BSI, and Donald J. Hobbs, BSI
Spain and Sherlock Holmes makes available for the first time a selection of the best Canonical scholarship from Spain. In the spirit of international cooperation, the anthology was co-edited by Spanish Sherlockian Maria Veiga-Hayzen and Series editor Don Hobbs, and the pieces were carefully translated from Spanish into English by Sherlockians Monte Latre Solé of Spain and Kenneth Carr of the USA. It is the fifth title in the BSI International Series.
This volume contains more than a dozen scholarly essays produced by the members of the Amateur Mendicant Society of Madrid, as well other interesting Sherlockian material. Also included are two Spanish pastiches that read as if they came directly from Dr. Watson's pen.
