Summary

He was egotistical, verbose and hot-headed to a fault. But he did not deserve to die... His name was Will Fowler, an actor in the esteemed theatrical company called Lord Westfield's Men, a vibrant young man flushed from the success of a recent performance at The Queen's Head theatre. So exuberant was he that he persuaded the resourceful manager of the company, Nicholas Bracewell, to quaff a pint or two at a nearby pub. Alas, it was to be Will's last taste of beer. A tavern brawl left him dead - but not before he gasped for Nicholas to find his fast-fleeting, red-bearded murderer and administer a just revenge. Yet finding Will's murderer in London's dark, crowded streets was a seemingly impossible task - not to mention the fact that Lord Westfield's Men were just commanded to appear at the court of Elizabeth I - an honour one dare not refuse . . .

    A dreaming man, lost in a fugue, leads them down dark passages, through the streets of London - and underneath them. 
    An old friend is lost and found again, an old enemy resurfaces and Holmes must walk perilous paths for a second time. 
    A fall is coming, a fall that has haunted Holmes' dreams, and now must be faced again, in the place where past and present become one, and two old foes meet for a final battle. 
    Praise for William Meikle and The Dreaming Man 
    “William Meikle’s ability to portray Holmes and Watson in a perfectly authentic fashion is nothing short of remarkable… he’s able to paint vivid, visceral imagery on the canvas of his reader’s mind, making you feel as if you’ve seen and experienced rather than read about the events of the story. And he can build a scene as well as anyone in the business… Whether you’re a fan of Sherlock Holmes or not, The Dreaming Man is damn good fiction!” HELLNOTES 
    “For anyone who loves great storytelling and well-crafted stories this book is for you. For Sherlock Holmes fans this book is an absolute must and I highly recommend it!” FAMOUS MONSTERS OF FILMLAND 
    “Readers looking for superb supernatural spins with Holmes need look no further.” Rick Kleffel's AGONY COLUMN 
    “Sir Arthur Conan Doyle would be proud. The feel of each story brings me back to those old tales of Sherlock Holmes, and one can easily believe that Meikle has unearthed some forgotten tome that contains all of the supernatural, extraterrestrial and just plain old unnatural adventures of Holmes and his trusty companion, Dr. Watson.” THE DEEPENING 
    “Meikle writes Holmes and Watson with a warm friendship. Their interaction is reminiscent of the radio series featuring Rathbone as Holmes and Nigel Bruce as the story-telling Watson.” HORRORVIEW
