Sherlock Holmes and The Adventure of the Ghost Machine (David MacGregor)
London: November 1905. England and the world are changing. Into the rooms of Sherlock Holmes come Nikola Tesla and Thomas Edison-with new inventions that will alter the course of human history-only both inventions have gone missing. Can Holmes, Watson, and Irene Adler somehow unravel the latest diabolical scheme of Marie Chartier-evil daughter of the late Professor Moriarty? Can world peace be achieved by the most powerful weapon ever created? Can death itself be overcome by a scientific genius? And can Sherlock Holmes survive the greatest personal loss of his career?
The third in the Holmes and Adler trilogy adapted from the stage...
Sherlockian Stories and Studies (Gayle Lange Puhl)
A Sherlock Holmes fan for most of her life, Gayle Lange Puhl has collected in this volume her latest stories and studies on the Great Detective. Included here are her well-reviewed “Colonel Warburton’s Madness” and “The Blood-Splattered Bridge,” plus other entertaining adventures. Essays on various Sherlockian subjects are also covered. Notable among them are the history of the real Criterion Bar and the contents of the Agra Treasure box. Discover the importance of pigs in the Canon (it is more than bacon!). Join in the fun of linking actor Wiliam Gillette, the first filmed Holmes, to today’s BBC SHERLOCK’s Benedict Cumberbatch.
Gayle Lange Puhl, ASH, is a past Solitary Typist of The Criterion Bar Association and the founder of two Sherlock Holmes scions. She has been published in The Baker Street Journal, The Devon County Chronicle, and The Serpentine Muse, the magazine of the Adventuresses of Sherlock Holmes.
