Product Description
Sixty original tales of Sherlock Holmes -- which one is the best? In sixty essays, sixty Sherlockians make the case for each of the stories. Their arguments range from the playful to the academic, and are as varied as the authors themselves. As editor Christopher Redmond says, "What they have written is compelling evidence that any one of the Sherlock Holmes stories can be the best; it’s all a matter of what the reader is looking for."

Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s tales range from Victorian horror, to jewel heists, to society scandals. As these authors show, there's a Sherlock Holmes adventure for every taste.

This volume benefits the Beacon Society. No royalties from the sale of this volume will be paid to either the authors or the editor. Royalties earned will, with the cooperation of the publisher, be turned over in their entirety to the Beacon Society, a not-for-profit organization of Sherlockians with the purpose of introducing young people to Sherlock Holmes through classrooms and libraries.


The Fifth Heart

The Fifth Heart by Dan Simmons. First Edition edition (March 24, 2015). ISBN-10: 031619882X. In 1893, Sherlock Holmes and Henry James come to America together to solve the mystery of the 1885 death of Clover Adams, wife of the esteemed historian Henry Adams--member of the Adams... Holmes is currently on his Great Hiatus--his three-year absence after Reichenbach Falls during which time the people of London believe him to be deceased. Holmes has faked his own death because, through his powers of ratiocination, the great detective has come to the conclusion that he is a fictional character. This leads to serious complications for James--for if his esteemed fellow investigator is merely a work of fiction, what does that make him. Dan Simmons has done it again. I know Dan Simmons has many books out, many of which are not to my topic liking, but when he does one that suits me. he's fantastic. I've read his book Drood (over 600 pgs ) twice because I like it so much. He is a master at taking real characters, mixing them with fictional character adding great descriptions of time and places and come up with a really good book to read. This time his main character is "fictional, Sherlock Holmes". It takes place in the United States (I prefer stories in the British Isles) and uses many historical real characters. On the day that James decides he will commit suicide he meets Sherlock and Sherlock basically turns him, for all intent and purposes, into "Watson" (side kick), and in turn saves his life. I was running through this books when I was due to have company and then go away for a week and so the last 140 pages I just finished today. If you like books that use fictional and real characters along with a good story. this book fits the bill. I'll keep this book along side of Drood, for a future reread.
