Space-scientist-turned novelist Stephanie Osborn will be again in the thick of things at Chattacon 39—but only on Saturday, Jan. 25 this year. As it happens, her “Displaced Detective” series, featuring a Sherlock Holmes who’s transported to this century through a wormhole is attracting the same fans who are swooning over the BBC “Sherlock” series, as well as the “Elementary” modern-Holmes series that is a hit for CBS.  

Ms. Osborn will sign pre-purchased copies of her many books, including the most recent in the “Displaced Detective” series: The Case of the Cosmological Killer: Endings and Beginnings. The ebook omnibus of the series, The Case of the Displaced Detective Omnibus, was published by Twilight Times Books in October and collects the first four books of the series, The Case of the Displaced Detective: The Arrival, The Case of the Displaced Detective: At Speed, The Case of the Cosmological Killer: The Rendlesham Incident, and The Case of the Cosmological Killer: Endings and Beginnings, into one electronic book. This new release is available on her website, www.sff.net/people/steph-osborn.

In these novels, Ms. Osborn uses her more than 20 years of working in the civilian and military space programs to craft a storyline in which physicist Dr. Skye Chadwick accidentally brings the famous detective through a wormhole into the 21st century.


Ms. Osborn will also sign pre-purchased copies of her many other science-fiction works, which can be viewed and bought on her Amazon author site: http://www.amazon.com/Stephanie-Osborn/e/B0026DM46M/ref=sr_ntt_srch_lnk_2?qid=1388340561&sr=8-2


Ms. Osborn is available for interview on a variety of topics related to her writing and the series: Making the transition from space worker to author; the wonderful and wacky world of science fiction/fantasy conventions; her own fascination with Holmes and why she decided to create her own stories. PDFs and review copies of the books are available on request. Ms. Osborn is currently a resident of Madison, Al.

Case Handled Like Any Other? - And Response

Is the Chief asking the public to believe that all misdemeanor domestic violence arrests include a 4-hour taped interrogation, and delayed reporting after a visit to the Chief’s house.
