about this book: The follow-up to A Lynchman's Owl acts as a bridging episode in the five-parter origins story, mostly inspired by the old serials I loved (and still adore) to read. Most notably we must give credit to Sir Arthur and his greatest creation, which sets an admittedly high bar for those who might wish to follow. I can only hope that with the two halves of the Lynchman's Owl, twenty-years before and after, I have as well found my Holmes, and that he will be as enduring.

If I must cite another inspiration, it would be the Batman Animated Series, which is still fondly remembered by many in my age group. The stories were mature, the art-deco setting sublime in it simplicity, but just as vivid as any overly-expressed comic book panel. The numerous multi-parters stick out in my mind as being valid ways to tell a story which ran longer than the standard half-hour format customary to animation at the time. For what it's worth, it always kept me tuning in for more.
