Come Watson! The Game is Afoot!


sherlockThe new season of Sherlock, with three new episodes, begins on Sunday May 6, on PBS. This contemporary series is the latest in a long tradition of Sherlock Holmes books, spin-offs, adaptations, sequels, prequels, updates, mash-ups, graphic novels, movies, comics, etc. Introduced in the classic Arthur Conan  Doyle stories, Sherlock Holmes, the world's greatest detective, is an indelible character, with almost supernatural skills of deduction, who seems to live on and on. There are as many versions of Sherlock Holmes as there are fans. "Excellent! I cried. Elementary said he."



The new annotated Sherlock Holmes ; Volume I / Sir Arthur Conan Doyle ; edited, with a foreword and notes by Leslie S. Klinger ; with additional research by Patricia J. Chui ; introduction by John Le Carre.

Never did he think to meet an intellect to match his own-until his acquaintance with Miss Mary Russell, a very modern fifteen-year-old whose mental acuity is equaled only by her audacity, tenacity, and penchant for trousers and cloth caps.
