The NMSOBC is delighted to announce that our March 12 meeting will feature a virtual presentation by author Nicholas Meyer, who will be interviewed by our own Patrick Ewing about his latest Sherlock Holmes pastiche, The Return of the Pharaoh.
This is Meyer’s fifth pastiche. He kick-started the current Holmes revival in 1974 with The Seven-Per-Cent Solution, followed by The West End Horror (1976), The Canary Trainer (1993), and The Adventure of the Peculiar Protocols (2019). An accomplished screenwriter and director, Meyer is also responsible for making Holmes’s reality canonical in the Star Trek universe (he is claimed as an ancestor by Mr. Spock in Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country, which Meyer wrote and directed). We are honored to be featuring him.
If you have any questions you would like Patrick to ask him, or for further information, please contact us via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
