Ivo A. Dekoning (°1958), the Worker Bee of a 2 member SH society The 221Bees (the Queen Bee is my wife Ilse Peys). Librarian, writer of novels and books for children (in two of them Holmes is featuring). Has published many stories and poems and wrote several Holmes stories and two pastiche novels. One of them has been published in May 2001, the very well-received The Red Track. A New Adventure of Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson, Ellessy, Arnhem (The Netherlands). In this book a lengthy article about the Sherlock Holmes phenomenom, Conan Doyle and the centenary of The Hound of the Baskervilles is included. The book is in Dutch as are the articles appearing in Dutch magazines. Occasionally I publish an English article or pastiche in magazines like The New Baker Street Pillar Box, The Conan Doyle Birthday Newsletter and the Japanese Shoso-in Bulletin.
Divised a Holmesian board game, Sherlock Holmes & Co versus Professor Moriarty & Co. A spellbinding Hunt through the 19th century London Labyrinth. Has also created prototypes of a Holmesian, a Professor Challenger/Black Delirium Doctor and a Terror of Blue John Gap card game. None of these yet on the market!
