Author Biography

Alistair is a respected Holmes historian and writer of the acclaimed Eliminate the Impossible (ETI) which has set the standard for recent examinations of Arthur Conan Doyle's works. A fascinating and enjoyable work that has garnered praise from around the Sherlockian world. The Sherlock Holmes Society of London commented in their review of ETI - Alastair Duncan knows his Holmes - and the Sydney Passengers said he was - a writer with both a genuine affection for, and a considerable knowledge of, the great detective. Alistair generates genuine praise from the leading Holmes societies for his meticulous and frank writing style. His history of Holmes and Historical London is eagerly awaited.
