Together Again for the First Time:
Forty Years of
The Seven-Per-Cent Solution.
By Steven T. Doyle, BSI.
The publication of Nicholas Meyer’s The Seven-Per-Cent Solution helped to launch the Sherlock Holmes boom of the 1970s, which in many ways has never ended. This tribute to Meyer covers both his bestselling book and the film based on that book. As Steven Doyle writes, “the only Sherlock Holmes stories to rival The Seven-Per-Cent Solution for popular success (and cultural impact) are the original publications of the canonical stories by Arthur Conan Doyle.”
