After much debate, both internal, and with certain persons involved, Dr. Watson has decided to publish an account which may give rise to considerable discussion, but which must, by the virtue of being factual, reduce some of the gossip and speculation concerning his family by marriage.
Involvement in a shipwreck, capture by savage pygmies, and by Borneo pirates, is paired with a more domestic account of enslavement within the walls of a certain Institution in the city of London.
Some followers of the great detective, Sherlock Holmes, are not yet aware of the remarkable circumstances surrounding the family of Dr. Watson's wife, Mary. The understandable impulse to maintain silence on certain private matters must be weighed against the need to disclose the true course of events.
About the Author
Phil van Wulven was born in Africa, in a family who changed houses and schools, as well as countries, quite often. Landlords, Headmasters, and governments prefer you to leave places as you found them, he discovered. He has lived in Canada for quite a while now, where he is busy growing roots. He hates rejection almost as much as dejection. He likes trees, birds, sunsets, and all that, and is getting used to the idea that seeing a sunrise doesn’t mean he is on the way to work. He likes to read, write, drink beer, and fix stuff.
