Facsimile edition, with an introduction and annotated transcription by Neil McCaw.
The Creeping Man is perhaps the most eccentric of all the Sherlock Holmes stories. A heady mix of familiar detective-investigation and seemingly outlandish science-fiction, it is the tale of the mysterious Professor Presbury, and the extraordinary consequences of his unremitting quest for eternal youth. And, as always, the only person who is able to decipher the clues and uncover the truth behind the peculiar, and even the outright bizarre, is the Great Detective, Sherlock Holmes. It is he who diagnoses the Professor’s apparent pathology, and he who in so doing re-establishes the status quo.
