A local historian in Selkirk, Scotland, has found what The Telegraph and other media first reported as “a long lost Sherlock Holmes story by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle”. It's not, as Sherlockian scholar Mattias Boström explains on the blog site I Hear of Sherlock Everywhere. ACD did help raise funds for the town bridge in 1903, but the story is a pastiche by some other hand. In his own blog, Ray Wilcockson has a careful analysis of how this tale differs from two other self-parodies that ACD did write.
