Nicholas Meyer, The Canary Trainer

Vignette for The Canary Trainer

The Sherlock Holmes novel The Canary Trainer (1993) was published in German in paperback with two full-page illustrations and thre vignettes in 1994. The German title was a little less subtle: Sherlock Holmes und das Phantom der Oper. It apparently worked and the first two books (The Seven-Per-Cent-Solution (Der Fall Sigmund Freud), made into a movie in 1977, and The West End Horror (Die Theatermorde) were re-published as well.

Nicholas Meyer is also known as screenplay writer and director (of two Star Trek movies, for example).
