The news broke today that Sherlock Holmes has one more story in him. Walter Elliot, a Scottish historian, discovered a 48 page pamphlet he had put away. Inside the 80 year old document, there is the unseen story of “Sherlock Holmes: Discovering the Border Burghs and, by deduction, the Brig Bazaar.”
For those who did not grow up with the series, this is a very commonplace short story for Doyle where Sherlock solves a relatively “simple” problem using his powers of deduction. Not all of his stories are solving a murder or some great crime, but in some cases the solving of rather everyday problems.
The story is part of a pamphlet that was designed to help raise funds for a small Scottish town and Doyle himself raise £560 pounds for the cause.

I grew up my whole life reading Sherlock Holmes. He is my favorite character from literature and I am on my third version of his complete anthology as I have reread them so much the first two were worn out. This news is pretty exciting to me as I now have a new story to focus on.
