Sherlock Holmes on Stamps

Since I am a big fan of Sherlock Holmes, I bought a a set of 8 stamps issued by Alderney on Sherlock Holmes.The scan of these stamps are shown below.

 Alderney issued these stamps in the year 2009 in order to commemorate Arthur Conan Doyle's 150th Birth Anniversary. These stamps depict a scene from one of the series from the collection, The Curious Case of the Alderney Bull. Avid Sherlock fans might be wondering if they Doyle ever wrote such a story. In fact, he did not. The story was written by Keith Robinson and was sponsored by Alderney to accompany the stamps!

You can find a little bit more information here and here. I couldn't find the full story online. If you do, please share the link :)
