In order to protect the names of the good (and not-so-good), Dr Watson comes to the decision that his accounts of some of his friend's most brilliant cases must never see the light of day. And so he conceals the manuscripts in an old despatch box, deep in the vaults of a Charing Cross bank... Now, outlasting the memories of those they could have harmed, these mysteries finally come to light. An aluminium crutch betrays the criminal who relies upon it for support... An Italian Cardinal lies dead in a muddy yard in Spitalfields... What do a pair of suspiciously successful gamblers have in common with the Transylvanian mind-reader, Count Rakoczi? And can Holmes and Watson outwit the jewel thief who has the nerve to steal from the King of Scandinavia?

James Innes Watson, the great-great-grandson of Dr. John H. Watson has inherited all of the manuscripts of his forebear. These include stories, for whatever reason Watson never published. “The Murdered Professor” and “The Bank Vault” were withheld by Watson himself, “The Assassination Plot” because of its political nature. Conan Doyle advised that Holmes's tales should stay in Europe, and so “Holmes in America” was never published, the final tale “The Haunted Stable” was withheld with respect to Conan Doyle's spiritual beliefs. Now after more than a hundred years these “lost” tales are published. An Appendix is included of the chronology.

One of the world's most well known fictional characters, Sherlock Holmes first appeared in print in 1887. The detective was featured in four novels and 56 short stories written by his creator, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. Within a decade of his creation Sherlock Holmes made his theatrical debut, first in a couple of obscure productions and soon in the celebrated play adapted by and starring William Gillette. Through the 20th century and beyond, the fictional detective featured in dozens of plays, not to mention radio programs, films, and television shows. In Sherlock Holmes on Stage, Amnon Kabatchnik cites the many theatrical appearances of the great detective since his debut in a one-act musical satire in November 1893. Divided into three sections, this book focuses on plays written or cowritten by Conan Doyle, one-act productions, and plays written by other authors—either adaptations of the novels and stories or original works. Within these sections, each entry is arranged in chronological order and provides a plot synopsis, production details, and other unique features. Some entries identify principal actors and provide biographical sketches of the playwrights, as well as those actors who made a lasting impression as the fictional sleuth. The book also includes several appendixes that focus on special productions, plays that feature variations of the Holmes character, and a list of acting editions.

El año 1903 contempló La Aventura de la Casa Deshabitada y El Regreso de Sherlock Holmes al 221b de Baker Street, donde explica el engaño de su muerte en las Cataratas de Reichenbach a su fiel amigo el Dr. John Watson. El año 2012 contempla El Crimen de la Casa Deshabitada donde el antiguo hogar de Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, Undershaw, se encuentra en mal estado y bajo la amenaza de ser destruido para siempre. Encargado construir por el mismísimo Sir Arthur Conan Doyle en persona, Undershaw fue testigo de la creación de muchas de sus obras más famosas, incluyendo El Sabueso de los Baskerville y El Regreso de Sherlock Holmes. Es un edificio que merece ser preservado para siempre para la nación británica, y por supuesto, el resto del mundo. Lamentablemente, el edificio se encuentra bajo la amenaza de promotores inmobiliarios que quieren dividir la casa en tres unidades separadas y construir otras cinco a su lado. El permiso de obras ya ha sido aprobado por el Consejo del Municipio de Waverley (Waverley Borough Council). La Fundación para la Preservación de Undershaw (en inglés, Undershaw Preservation Trust [UPT]), con Mark Gatiss [Sherlock de la BBC] como presidente de honor, está dedicada a la preservación y protección de este importante edificio literario y está haciendo campaña para conseguir que se revoque esta decisión, de manera que la casa pueda ser restaurada a su gloria original y disfrutada como la vivienda individual que Sir Arthur Conan Doyle pretendió que fuese. Este libro es una colección de cuentos cortos y poemas acerca de Sherlock Holmes, escritos por fans de todo el mundo para apoyar la campaña Save Undershaw (Salvar Undershaw); incluso la portada ha sido diseñada por fans. Los beneficios del libro serán destinados a la UPT para preservar esta maravillosa casa para las generaciones futuras de Doyleanos, entusiastas de Sherlock Holmes y todo tipo de fans de la literatura.

It's 1890. Sherlock Holmes and Doctor Watson return to Baker Street after a night pursuing a vicious criminal. Inspector Lestrade is waiting for Holmes with a proposition of national importance. Lestrade tells Holmes that a school of detection has been formed to train a new breed of modern investigators that will serve in Great Britain and the Empire. Most students will become police officers. Some, however, will become bodyguards and spies. Holmes begins instructing his decidedly curious assortment of students from home and abroad. He does so with his customary gusto and inventiveness. Scotland Yard, in the main, allocates crimes to solve and Holmes mentors his students. Occasionally, he shadows them in disguise in order to assess or even directly test their abilities with creative scenarios he devises. Certain crimes investigated by the students might appear trivial, such as the re-positioning of an ornament atop a garden wall, yet it will transpire an assassin has moved the ornament to create good sightlines in order to commit murder with a sniper's rifle. Other mysteries are considered outside the domain of the police. For example, the inexplicable disappearance of a stone gargoyle, which is linked to an ancient family curse. Or a man suffering from amnesia who discovers that not only has he acquired a secret life but also gained an implacable enemy, too. Holmes, with the ever- trustworthy Doctor Watson in his wake, is kept busy with his students' cases, ranging from minor to serious, sometimes rectifying their mistakes and saving them from a variety of disasters. These eleven wonderful new adventures and intrigues include tales such as 'The Gargoyles of Killfellen House', 'Sherlock Holmes and the Four Kings of Sweden' and 'The Case of the Cannibal Club'.

On the morning of the vernal equinox in 1899, Holmes is roused from his bed by Lestrade. The inspector has received a report of a girl brutally murdered at Stonehenge. Upon arriving at the famed site, Holmes discovers the body of a young woman. On her forehead, painted in blood, is a druidic symbol. On her side, also in blood, is a message written in a strange language that neither Holmes nor Lestrade can decipher. The girl was also eviscerated and her organs placed around her body. As a final touch, branches from yew trees had been artistically arranged around the corpse. Holmes senses a malevolent force at work, but without data, he is powerless. As the weeks pass, he slowly gathers information about the ancient druids and Celtic mythology and begins to assemble a small army of experts to assist him. Expecting the killer to strike again on the summer solstice, Holmes and Watson travel to the Nine Ladies in Derbyshire, the site of another stone circle that harkens to druidic times. While they are holding their vigil, Lestrade and his men are off keeping watch over the stone circles at Avebury and several other locations. The Great Detective’s worst fears are realized when on the morning of the summer solstice, he learns that the body of a young man has been discovered in the eye of the White Horse of Uffington. Like the first victim, he too has been marked with a druidic symbol and his body bears a message. Aside from the symbol and the message, the only other difference appears to be that his body and organs have been surrounded by willow branches. Realizing full well that a maniac reminiscent of the Ripper is on the loose, Holmes and Watson find themselves in a race against time as they try to locate the cult, identify the killer and prevent another tragedy.

Daniil Kharms (1905–42) is known as an author of Russian absurd literature. It is generally overlooked that the pseudonym Kharms encodes Sherlock Holmes’s Russian name of Kholms. An intertextual comparison between Kharms and Holmes shows how Arthur Conan Doyle’s Holmes made his way into Russian absurd literature. This article originally appeared in Clues: A Journal of Detection, Volume 28, Issue 2.

Missing, presumed dead for three years, Sherlock Holmes returns triumphantly to his dear companion Dr. Watson. And not before time! London has never been in more need of his extraordinary services: a murderous individual with an air gun stalks the city.

SIR ARTHUR CONAN DOYLE was born in Edinburgh. A doctor by profession, it was while waiting for patients that he began to write. The exploits of Sherlock Holmes and his companion in adventure and chronicler, Dr. Watson, soon catapulted Doyle to international status.
