The Ghost of Sherlock Holmes (1984)

This irresistibly titled collection of supernatural short stories contains one (the title story) about two bibliophiles who encounter a familiar apparition while on an excursion in Sussex. The author, Leslie Halliwell, is most renown for his Halliwell's Film Guide.


HOW CAN THERE BE A GHOST 
OF A MAN WHO DIDN'T REALLY EXSIST? 
Did the dead industrialist really come back to look for his wife? Can you make love to a ghost? 
Californian poltergeists, Icelandic apparitions and tales of Monagasque menace: Leslie Halliwell may be influenced by master such as E.F. Benson, Saki and above all M.R. James but with this original and chilling volume, he has established his claim as a master of the field of ghost stories in his own right. 
In The Ghost of Sherlock Holmes you will encounter spirits wistful, benevolent – and evil . . .
