Available from Amazon USA and all good bookstores. "Villains, Victims, and Violets is a beautiful bouquet of Sherlockian scholarship, impressive in its breadth and depth. . . . a rare book that is likely to influence my re-reading of the Canon for some time to come."Dan Andriacco, author of the McCabe and Cody Mysteries and Taming the Media Monster Modern writers have reconsidered every subject under the sun through the lens of Sherlock Holmes. The overlooked subject is agency: the opportunities available to these women for independence and control. What we find all too often are the silences around them. And yet, these...

Sherlock Holmes Attentato al Club Diogene (Il Giallo Mondadori Sherlock) Formato Kindle Mai il dottor Watson avrebbe immaginato di rendersi complice di un’infernale macchinazione. E tuttavia è attingendo ai suoi dettagliatissimi resoconti delle imprese di Sherlock Holmes che un ignoto avversario ha potuto concepire un piano spaventoso.

Sebbene indossi abiti laceri ed emani un tanfo disgustoso, costui non ha l’aria del diseredato; sembra anzi un uomo benestante travestito da povero.

“The Hound of Baskervilles doesn’t easily lend itself to the theatre, but dramatists seem unable to resist the challenge. I’ve not had the chance to see it performed, but Simon Corble’s play is pretty close to the top of my list of favourites. It was written to be performed out of doors, with the audience following the actors from place to place. Mr Corble boldly adapts the story rather than simply dramatising, and the result is clever, witty, exciting – and refreshingly intelligent. David Stuart Davies contributes an appreciative foreword, and the text is enhanced by a dozen photographs and...

I went looking for books and discovered the Sherlock Holmes books in the hall bookcase. I read my way through them starting that day. What was the inspiration for your pastiche? I knew about colonial...
