"Somewhere in the vaults of the bank of Cox and Co., at Charing Cross, there is a travel-worn and battered tin dispatch-box with my name, John H. Watson, M.D., painted upon the lid. It is crammed with papers, nearly all of which are records of cases to illustrate the curious problems which Mr. Sherlock Holmes has at various times to examine."

The Further Adventures of Solar Pons (1979)

Another collection of original Solar Pons stories by Basil Copper. This 9th Pinnacle paperback was published in 1979 and has one of my favorite Pons covers.

Hark! Solar Pons is Back! 
And the chase is on . . . join the hunt as this superlative sleuth pursues his quarry through the tangled webs of intrigue, crime and murder. 
Faithful followers of Sherlock Holmes and mystery lovers alike will delight in Basil Cooper's compelling storytelling as he continues the grand tradition of August Derleth's unerring detective genius, Solar Pons. This literary descendant of Sherlock Holmes is the true heir to the incomparable Master . . . so the chase will continue, as long as villainy and crime must answer to truth and justice!
