"This book was published posthumously from notes left by the author.  Two “chapters” were published during her lifetime in issues of “Canadian Holmes,” [Volume 14, Issues #2 & 4, Wi/1990 & Su/1991].  Chris Redmond is responsible for making the completion of this tale available from her notes.

It helps that the three eldest are at school and pre-school five days a week, and I’ve gotten very good at typing one-handed with the baby on my knee. Are you a structured writer, writing at a set time and...

John Paulits has been writing fiction for over thirty years but rarely has his writing caused as much controversy as his latest novel – The Mystery of Charles Dickens. History records that on June 9, 1870, Charles Dickens died of a cerebral haemorrhage. History, says Paulits, however, is wrong. June 9, 1870, is the day on which Emile de la Rue murdered Charles Dickens. His publishers have said that they’ve never had so many review copies requests – mainly from Dickens clubs and societies around the world. The novel suggests that during a stay in Genoa in 1844-45, Charles Dickens,...
