The Complete Bagel Street Saga
(A book in the Schlock Homes series)
A collection of stories by Robert L Fish
The inimitable Schlock Homes is back in print again! In all the large literature of the misadventures of Sherlock Holmes, wrote Anthony Boucher as early as 1965, there is nothing quite comparable to Robert L. Fish s tales of Schlock Homes... These Fish stories are the best of all the mock-Holmesian literature. No murmur of dissent has ever been heard to challenge this judgment, and during 22 years, from 1959 to 1981, Robert L. Fish wrote 32 of his small masterpieces of adroit and devious plotting. All your old Bagel Street friends are here...Schlock Homes himself, his partner and confidant Dr. Watney, his brother Criscroft Homes; Inspector Balustrade of Scotland Yard; the villainous Professor Marty, Colonel Moron, Irene Addled, and A.J. Lotteries; and of course (thanks to Dr. Watney's excellent care) the immortal Bagel Street Regulars. Now, for the first time, all the Schlock Homes tales have been brought together...every unpardonable word of every outrageous case recorded by the ever-reliable Dr. Watney. Many old favorites are available here for the first time in a decade and a half...and nine of the cases between these covers have never before appeared in book form. A brief bibliography has been appended to provide original publication dates and book appearances. In sum, Schlock Homes, the Complete Bagel Street Saga is the definitive edition of the exploits of the Great Detective of Bagel Street.
