It is most gratifying that my readers continue to be interested in the memoirs (even if the world persists in regarding them as fiction!) Thus today’s publication of a Twentieth Anniversary Edition of the first Memoir, which was given the title The Beekeeper’s Apprentice, and a subtitle drawn from Holmes’ work on the apiary arts: Or, on the Segregation of the Queen.
My literary editor, Ms Laurie R. King, has written a new Foreword for the volume, although why the publishers did not ask me, I cannot think.
Oh, wait: was that while Holmes and I were away in the Pamirs? Yes, I suppose it was. Deadlines being as they are I can hardly criticise the publishers for being unable to wait.
In any event, I trust you will find the volume to your satisfaction,
