Sherlock Holmes and The Alien Abduction
by Phillip Duke
Sherlock Holmes and Doctor Watson are called upon to save the reputation of a wealthy and beautiful lady of high station. A member of her Theosophical Society was abducted under very strange circumstances, and according to his sworn statement, he was forced to provide a semen sample. Holmes immediately seeks an interview with him, but the man is found dead, and cannot be questioned.
There are no signs of violence and no marks on the body, but Holmes investigates, and brilliantly deduces the cause of death. With the death no longer a problem, the authorities are satisfied, scandal is avoided, and the case is closed. But there remains a loose end, regarding the abducted man's speed of transit, and with it, a very disturbing possibility, regarding why he was abducted. Due to the loose end and the disturbing possibility, Sherlock Holmes directs Watson not to publish the case until "a hundred years after my death, when much that is unclear now, will be clear as crystal then."
The case was written up, and consigned to a lock box deep in the Bank of England's vault. Diring the course of two world wars it became lost, but was recently recovered and published. Now, for the first time ever, you can read the previously lost case of Sherlock Holmes and the Alien Abduction. It is doubtful whether any other case was solved more brilliantly by Sherlock Holmes, but with less personal satisfaction to him.
