The Adventure of the Peerless Peer Fantasy novel (novella).By John H. Watson, M.D., edited by Philip José Farmer.Actually completely written by Farmer, John H. Watson is used as a pseudonym. Later rewritten and retitled as "The Adventure of the Three Madmen", but finally in 2008, with permission of the Burroughs estate, again published with the original text and title.DEDICATION: "Dedicated to Samuel Rosenberg, who has embroidered for the world the greatest Doylie ever." COVER TEXT:The "Peerless Peer" of the title is none other than Lord Greystoke, the jungle-born scion of a noble English family, a duke in Britain but in his larger estate of Central Africa a king. The time is 1916, at the height of the Great War. The east wind has grown appallingly cold in England, and when the Foreign Office learns that a deadly formula has been stolen from the Allies by Sherlock Holmes' old foe, the German agent Von Bork, Mycroft calls his younger brother out of retirement to save the Empire from the greatest danger that ever threatened it. Watson, of course, accompanies Holmes on this perilous mission, and his account of their adventure is one of the most thrilling narratives the good doctor ever penned.(Aspen Press edition.)
