When the author Arthur Conan Doyle meets Nikola Tesla he finds a tall, thin genius with a photographic memory and a keen eye, and recognizes in the eccentric inventor the embodiment of his creation, Sherlock. Together, they team up to take on a different, evil Holmes. Multi-murderer Dr. Henry H. Holmes has escaped execution and is unleashing a reign of terror upon the city. Set in the late nineteenth century in a world of modern marvels, danger, and invention, Conan Doyle, Tesla, and the madman engage in a deadly game of wits.
Surprises at every turn and many moments that are so clever, you’ll wonder how the author came up with it. He must’ve had Arthur Conan Doyle at his shoulder as he wrote. Don’t miss it!

No hemos quedado con las manos desocupadas, a pesar de los calores del verano. No, señores, la creatividad y el amor para la lengua y los cuentos nos mantienen muy ocupados.
Aquí, desvelo el arte para la tapa de la mejor colección de cuentos sobre dragones, La Princesa valiente de Seymour Hamilton. El dibujo es de la artista canadiense Shirley MacKenzie. El libro salió el año pasado en inglés (con otra tapa, que pensamos cambiar) como The Laughing Princess y ha tenido mucho éxito, entreteniendo a los niños y sus parientes igualmente. Muy pronto, el texto completo estará disponible para leer en lengua castellana. ¡Mira este espacio para todas las noticias!
