In the 1980s and 1990s, the late Terry Golledge wrote 10 Holmes masterful pastiches that perfectly captured Dr. Watson's voice, as well as Holmes’ personality and methods. Mr. Golledge passed away in 1996, before these stories could be published.
In early 2022, Terry’s son, Niel Golledge, reached out to Sherlockian editor David Marcum, who was electrified to read such wonderful previously lost tales about the heroes of Baker Street. Now all of these valuable and sublime new additions to the great Holmes tapestry, once unknown except to a very few, are collected in an important new volume and available to the world.

Can you prove anything from statistics on death rates? On the train back to London after solving the case of the stockbroker's clerk, Holmes asks some extremely penetrating questions about Dr. Watson's medical practice in Paddington and that of Dr. Anstruther next door. The questioning is inconclusive, but the questions suddenly become relevant when official investigations are launched into death rates in Paddington and Watson is fortunate that Holmes is on hand. The story contains some of Holmes's most brilliant deductions as well as providing a new insight into Dr. Watson's financial situation in the 1890s.
From the cold-blooded murder of a man well known in London’s Bohemian society to a sinister tradition in an old Tudor manor house, these six cases from the early years of Holmes’ career in the 1880s present a singular collection of mysteries for the world’s first consulting detective to resolve. Who is it that bangs on the front door of Mr Lidington’s isolated cottage in the dead of night? Why does Henry Barton’s job interview proceed in such a surprising and unpredictable way? What is the secret of the man from Chile and his strange, silent wife? Sherlock Holmes must find the answers to these and many other puzzling questions if he is to bring these cases to a successful conclusion. In this new collection of Sherlock Holmes short stories, well known author Denis O. Smith accurately recreates once more both the atmosphere and the excitement of Conan Doyle’s well-loved original Holmes tales.
Somewhere between the fact and fiction Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's greatest creation stole the soul of Jeremy Brett, the actor who would become the embodiment of the Baker Street sleuth. The Curse of Sherlock Holmes follows Jeremy as he fights for his sanity and his life. This is the full script of the play by Dhanil Ali.
