Sherlock Holmes Update

Horowitz to write Holmes mystery for Orion | theBookseller.com: "Orion is to publish a new full-length Sherlock Holmes novel, written by Alex Rider author Anthony Horowitz, after he was selected by the Conan Doyle Estate.

Jon Wood, deputy group publisher, acquired world rights to the as-yet-unnamed title through Robert Kirby of United Agents.

Further details about the title, to be published in September, are still to be revealed, though it will be 'a brilliant mystery novel, stripped back to the original style of Conan Doyle', according to the
publisher."

I haven't read any of his books but he certainly did a great job with FOYLE'S WAR.

I'm sure he's good, but Evan Lewis would be my first choice.

Is Orion trying to re-establish the original copyright, as was done with Gone with the Wind?
