Hauling Like A Brooligan

Young Sherlock

Happy to see that my old friend Andy Lane is the writer chosen to helm a series of Young Sherlock Holmes adventures approved by the Estate of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle.

According to the announcement on the United Agents site, The Colossal Schemes of Baron Maupertuis (is) due to be published in Spring 2010. The books will begin in the 1860s and will detail the life of a 14-year-old Sherlock Holmes.”

The books will be published by Macmillan and the initial deal is for three novels.
