    Default Sherlock Holmes is back

    Sherlock Holmes brought back to life by writer Anthony Horowitz




    Over the years there have been many adaptations of the better-known Sherlock Holmes tales


    One of Britain's most famous fictional detectives, Sherlock Holmes, is being brought back to life by a new author.

    More than 80 years after the death of his creator, the estate of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle has authorised a writer to pen a new full-length novel.
    Due to be released in September, the novel will be written by the British writer, Anthony Horowitz.

    Anthony Horowitz has been chosen by Arthur Conan Doyle's estate to officially resurrect the iconic Victorian detective by writing a full-length novel, scheduled for release by Orion this September. As an author, Horowitz is perhaps best known for his hugely popular "Alex Rider" children's series. But he is also a screenwriter and is the creator and writer of two fine TV series with mystery themes: "Foyle's War" and "Collision" – the excellence of which bode well for the new "Holmes" novel.

    Horowitz also adapted several of Agatha Christie's "Hercule Poirot" stories for TV in the 1990s and wrote the majority of the episodes of a British TV series called "Midsomer Murders."


    When it comes to Holmes, Horowitz says he's been a devoted fan since he was 16. "I simply couldn't resist this opportunity to write a brand-new adventure for this iconic figure," he told the press. "[M]y aim is to produce a first-rate mystery for a modern audience while remaining absolutely true to the spirit of the original."
    Horowitz is not giving away any details yet, but he has said that he plans to keep Holmes in his historic Victorian setting.



    Holmes is everywhere these days. He's the star of several new books and a very good updated BBC series, and filming is currently under way in London on "Sherlock Holmes 2" starring Robert Downey Jr.


    The truth is that Holmes has never gone out of style. When his creator, Scottish author Arthur Conan Doyle, who featured Holmes in four novels and 56 short stories, finally tired of him, he tried to kill him off. But intense public pressure forced Sir Arthur to bring the detective back to life.



    After Sir Arthur’s own death in 1930, his son Adrian wrote several stories featuring Holmes and Watson, also officially recognized by the Doyle estate, but never very popular.
    This fresh attempt, however, with a skilled writer at the helm, may hold promise. The "James Bond" franchise, of course, is trying the same tactic, with a second release of an "official" new "James Bond" novel, "Carte Blanche" by Jeffrey Deaver, poised for release this spring.


    But for those of us who would prefer a successful return to 221b Baker Street, there's nothing to do but cross our fingers – maybe watching a few reruns of "Foyle's War" while we wait – and hope for the best come September.

    The short stories, originally published in periodicals, were later gathered into five anthologies:

    Yeah, remaking-rewriting screws a lot of thing
