From THE HAUNTING OF SHERLOCK HOLMES:
“As the reader no doubt recalls, I have striven to be rather selective in my presentation of the mysteries to which Sherlock Holmes bent his remarkable energies. However, upon reviewing my copious notes in the overlooked or passed-over files of our adventures, I see that I was too scrupled or spoiled by the wealth of dramatically rich stories to fulfill my honest intention to select only those episodes that demonstrated Holmes’s method of deduction over those that had purely sensational appeal. Having had time to examine the many disqualified baubles for years, I see gems that I had taken for glass with my mind’s eye—the only eye that may grow clearer with age, it seems.
“In some cases, I overlooked anecdotes for their raw excitement, discovering only on a second or third look the loom of Holmes’s reason as it gathered the skeins of causality too quickly for the human eye, at times so intimate with action as to be indistinguishable from reflex, a dazzling display of logic that had the misleading appearance of blind luck. In other instances, I passed over a case for its academic varnish—too dull, I concluded, for public consumption—only to discover the high drama concealed in Holmes’s cerebral swordplay these many years later as an old man looking back on faded notes and still-vivid memories. The case I shall here recount was decidedly of the former variety, though its roots reached farther into the other variety than I believe I shall ever be able to penetrate…”
THE HAUNTING OF SHERLOCK HOLMES AND OTHER TALES OF ADVENTURE is approximately 33,000 words long.
Praise for Warren Fahy’s thriller FRAGMENT:
“Highly recommended for all popular collections—a perfect read for poolside this summer…FRAGMENT closely follows the patented Michael Crichton style." — Booklist
“I haven't had this much fun reading a science/adventure thriller since Jurassic Park. For the last half I was frozen in place—I couldn't move, couldn't talk. I even teared up a couple of times in pure joy.It took hours for the adrenaline to wear off." — Fangoria
"Hang on to your hats! Mr. Fahy takes readers on a wild ride through a parallel universe where evolution has run amok—think JURASSIC PARK but scarier." — The Wall Street Journal
"Few debuts are as explosive as Warren Fahy's FRAGMENT, a story of evolutionary horror that leaps off the page and grabs for your throat. Think JURASSIC PARK on steroids. This is one helluva ride!" — James Rollins, New York Times bestselling author of The Last Oracle.
"The plot briskly leaps from survival to an incredible ending I don't dare spoil, and the more you read, the better it gets. By the end I may or may not have had a tear in my eyes. Run-of-the-mill scientific thriller this is not. Highly recommended." — Alex Wolfe, Old Firehouse Books
"Fahy’s imaginative debut puts a fresh spin on the survival-of-prehistoric-beasts theme popularized by JURASSIC PARK." — Publishers Weekly (STARRED REVIEW)
"First-time novelist Warren Fahy seems poised to fill Crichton’s shoes with a novel that keeps readers on the edge of their seats even as it explains provocative theories about such topics as the evolutionary role of natural lifespans and the surprising relationship between sexual reproduction and evolution." — Bookreporter.com
"A rollicking tale [that] will enthrall readers of Jurassic Park and The Ruins.” — USA Today
