More About the Author

Hugh Ashton was born in the UK in 1956. After graduating from the University of Cambridge, he worked in a variety of jobs, including security guard, publisher's assistant, and running an independent record label, before coming to rest in the field of information technology, where he assisted perplexed users of computers and wrote explanations to guide them through the problems they encountered.

A long-standing interest in Japan led him to emigrate to that country in 1988, where he has remained ever since; writing instruction manuals for a variety of consumer products, assisting with IT-related projects at banks and financial institutions, and researching and writing industry reports on the Japanese and Asian financial industries. Some of the knowledge he has gained in these fields forms the background for At the Sharpe End, his second novel.

He has recently published with Inknbeans Press of Los Angeles: Tales from the Deed Box of John H. Watson MD, More from the Deed Box of John H. Watson MD, Secrets from the Deed Box of John H Watson MD, The Darlington Substitution, and Notes from the Dispatch-Box of John H. Watson MD each containing Sherlock Holmes adventures, in the style of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. Inknbeans Press has also published his collection of short stories set in Japan, Tales of Old Japanese, featuring the culture and habits of the older generation of Japanese. The first three books of Holmes-ian adventure have been compiled into an "omnibus edition", entitled The Deed Box of John H. Watson MD.

His first published novel, Beneath Gray Skies, is an alternative history set in a "past that never happened", where the Civil War was never fought.

His second novel, At the Sharpe End, features an expatriate consultant living in Tokyo, Kenneth Sharpe, who finds himself thrust into a world of violence and high finance that takes him by surprise.

The third novel, Red Wheels Turning, takes some of the characters of Beneath Gray Skies, and sets them in the background of Tsarist Russia, where a battle of wits takes place to control the secret Russian wonder weapons that could win the war for the Allies.

Hugh currently lives with his wife Yoshiko in the old town of Kamakura to the south of Tokyo, where he is working on future novels and stories.

Format: Paperback
Having exhausted the deed box, Hugh Ashton has more recently found another source, resulting so far in two more paperbacks: Notes from the Dispatch-Box of John H Watson MD and Further Notes from the Dispatch-Box of John H Watson MD. The first gives us `The Affair of the Vatican Cameos', `The Reigate Poisoning Case' (`The Reigate Poisoning Case Concluded', published separately as a Kindle, very cleverly turns the story on its head) and, unexpectedly, `The History of John Augustus Edward Clay as Told by Himself'. In the second volume are `The Abernetty Horror', `The Case of the Finsbury House', `The Curious Affair of the Archdeacon' and `An Account of the Victor Lynch Forgery' - that last told by Inspector Charles [sic] Lestrade. Mr Ashton's stories are admirably close to the real thing.

Well written ghosting of Sherlock Holmes stories, as usual, derived from passing references in the original works. There are several authors doing this and it is interesting to read different developments of the same reference.

As a lover of all things Holmes I am very disappointing with this collection. The tales do not capture the essence of Doyle and Holmes. The clinical detective abilities of Holmes are simply not there and the Victorian atmosphere is sadly lacking as is the relationship between Holmes and Watson which are part of the charm of Doyle's work. Some of the stories just seem to ramble on ad nauseam with convoluted reasoning that is just not at all realistic.

I am amazed that anyone has given these stories 4/5 stars. Try June Thomson's work they are very good and capture the whole essence of the great detective.

My husband's the Sherlock fan and he says Hugh Ashton is one of the best since Conan Doyle himself, he's read most of the work he has done and hopes he's going to do more.
