The return of Sexton Blake.
Over on the Great War blog, George Simmers discusses the new collection Sexton Blake, Detective(ed. George Mann) published by Snowbooks. One of Britain's most popular detective-adventurers, Blake debuted in "The Missing Millionaire" in 1893 and had a long run in periodicals, silent movies, talkies, radio serials, and even a 1960s TV series.
