Return to the Center of the Earth
Professor Lindenbrock never did make it to the center of the Earth… or did he? Professor Moriarty plunged to his death after a clash with Sherlock Holmes. Are you quite sure of that? Did you ever wonder why the Germans never managed to take Paris in World War 1? Could it be…? Nijinsky took Paris (and the world) by storm with his dancing in the Twenties. And Stravinsky changed the sound of classical music with The Rite of Spring. But did you know that this almost didn’t happen? Biggles was the greatest fighter ace the British had in World War 1 – but when did he take his first solo flight? And why? And how did someone suspiciously like the Lone Ranger really come into being?.
The New Exploits of Joseph Rouletabille
by Martin Gately - cover by David Rabbitte - 272 p. - US$22.95
Journalist Joseph Josephin, aka Rouletabille, is an idealized projection of its creator, Gaston Leroux, and was originally conceived as a "rival" of Sherlock Holmes and Arsène Lupin. He "borrows" his prodigious deductive powers from Auguste Dupin, M. Lecoq, Holmes and Hercule Poirot, and solves the mysteries he encounters using what he calls "the good bit of reason." The Rouletabille series has justly become a classic of detective literature. Martin Gately, author of the authorized sequel to Philip José Farmer's The Green Odyssey, has also written the Starblazer comic book published by DC Thomson and occasionally contributes to the British edition of the Fortean Times. His latest work is an adaptation of Edgar Rice Burroughs' Pirate Blood as a comic book..
