Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s Body to be dug up

DoyleIn an alarming story a new publisher who will be reissuing all of the work of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle has planned a series of events to launch the new versions of the books. As part of the plan to bring in more fans they plan to exhume the body of the famous writer and have the remains in a glass case at the events.

“With renewed popularity in Sherlock Holmes it just seems like the right thing to do” spokesperson Ima Ginary said i a press release. “People who are just discovering the books should have a chance to meet the author”

At least two events are being planned for London and 6 other locations through out the UK. Ali Karim has been asked to interview the dead author at the London events and Ayo Onatade will conduct at least two others.

In the US, Borders book chain, which is also dead, is planning a huge push, the kind they should have done for books when they were still open. The dead author will be posed in a number of fun ways for fans to get their pictures taken with the sure to be rotted corpse.

We reached out to Phonie Bros Press but could not get a comment. When we tried to speak to Borders we didn’t get through to anyone because they are out of business.

If this works there may be a chance for us all to meet Ian Fleming so lets keep our fingers crossed.
