John Watson über dieses Buch: "Dieses Buch ist mein bescheidener Versuch, ein wenig Licht auf die Arbeit des besten und weisesten Menschen zu werfen, den ich je gekannt habe. Er hat – wenn ich das so sagen darf – die Wissenschaft der Deduktion zur Kunst erhoben. Nachdem ich bei einigen seiner bedeutendsten Fälle an seiner Seite sein durfte, liegt es nun an mir, seine Verdienste einem breiteren Publikum zu präsentieren. Er ist, um es kurz zu machen, der Mozart der Kriminalwissenschaft. Ich würde gern noch fortfahren, doch mit großer Freude darf ich Ihnen sagen, dass Sherlock Holmes persönlich zugesagt hat, einen Teil dieses Textes zu schreiben ..." Sherlock Holmes über dieses Buch: "Kaufen Sie dieses Buch auf keinen Fall. Was eigentlich eine Serie von spannenden Vorträgen hätte werden sollen, hat der Autor zu geschmackloser, billiger Unterhaltung degradiert. Die Wissenschaft der Deduktion ist eine Sparte menschlicher Errungenschaften, die ernsthafte Analysen erfordert, und hier ist nun dieses verschwenderisch gestaltete Buch durch Humor entstellt und mit Klatsch und Tratsch vergiftet. Offenbar ist diese Art der Sensationsgier nötig, um das Interesse der lesenden Bevölkerung zu wecken, aber nur ein Idiot wäre hiervon beeindruckt. Sie entscheiden."

James Innes Watson, the great-great-grandson of Dr. John H. Watson, has inherited all the manuscripts of his forebear. These include stories that, for whatever reason, Watson never came to publish. In this collection, "The Case of Ailsa Craig," Holmes is summoned by an old university friend to a bleak island off the coast of Scotland. A lighthouse keeper has disappeared in apparent supernatural circumstances. "The Amateur Cracksman," Scotland Yard approaches Holmes regarding a high society cracksman. It is only when Mycroft Holmes enters the investigation with a robbery of radio inventor Marconi that the case is solved. "Sherlock Holmes in Cumbria," Holmes and Watson travel to the English Lake District to solve a murder case on the mountains. A second murder on the peak of one of England's highest mountains, and then a theft from a family from Holmes's past make up this north-country case.

Story one: The Castle orphans “How often does he visit you?” added Watson, producing his pipe from his pocket. He searched the same pocket for a match, then lit the device. “He visits every week, and every few nights. He likes to sneak in the window and take things back to his castle!” The small girl played with the little tiger upon her knee. Story Two: The Curse of a Native. Adams had violently slapped Kimilu so hard that the sheer force had floored the waiter and the usually humble waiter had lost it. He had stood up and angrily talked back at him in his native language which Adams did not understand. But Butler had lived in Africa for over two decades and he understood every word. His translation confirmed by other native workers who witnessed the drama. It was chilling to say the least. And more...

TV-Serien sind in den letzten 15-20 Jahren zu einem besonders kreativen Feld für Schauspieler, Regisseure und Autoren geworden. Steigende Budgets und die streckenweise euphorische Resonanz beim Publikum und in den Feuilletons führen dazu, dass sich die traditionelle Form des Geschichtenerzählens vom Kinofilm zu TV-Serien hin verlagert hat - auch deshalb, weil sich das Serienformat hervorragend dazu eignet, längere Entwicklungen von Charakteren, Beziehungen und Handlungssträngen zu verfolgen. Im Zuge dessen haben sich auch unsere Sehgewohnheiten geändert. Immer öfter werden Serien nicht mehr im Fernsehen geschaut, sondern auf DVD oder gleich im Stream - und dann nicht nur eine Folge, sondern gerne auch mal die halbe Staffel am Abend. "Binge-watching" lässt grüßen. Gleichzeitig bietet die narrative und ästhetische Struktur der TV-Serie die Möglichkeit einer vielschichtigen Erkundung sozialer und gesellschaftlicher Bedingungen und Prozesse. Die Beiträge in diesem Buch nehmen Serien aus vielen verschiedenen Perspektiven in den Blick - von Psychologie, Medienwissenschaften, Amerikanistik, Kulturphilosophie bin hin zu Forensik und Neurobiologie.

In 1891, Sherlock Holmes in a struggle with his arch-enemy, the Napoleon of Crime, Professor James Moriarty, plunged with him over the Reichenbach Falls to his inevitable death. All of England - indeed the entire world - mourned the irreplaceable loss of the world's greatest detective. And that's where things stood until 1894 when Holmes suddenly reappeared in London, revealing himself to his friend Dr. John Watson, and resumed his activities as a consulting detective. Holmes remained very quiet and mysterious on those missing three years, never really revealing precisely where he'd been and what he'd done in the 'hidden years." Now, in this anthology of original stories the truth about those thirty-five months is unveiled and Holmes' adventures described. While some stories place Holmes in such familiar locations as New York and San Francisco, others find him high in the Himalayas or above the Arctic Circle. With stories from such writers as Rhys Bowen, Peter Beagle, Carolyn Wheat, Michael Collins and many others, Sherlock Holmes: The Hidden Years is a must-have book for every fan who has every wondered about the untold adventures of Sherlock Holmes.

'"Is it really possible, do you suppose," said Sherlock Holmes to me one morning, as we took breakfast together, "that a healthy and robust man may be so stricken with terror that he drops down dead?"' So begins 'The Adventure of the Brown Box'. Even better than his first collection, twelve new stories from the much praised Denis O. Smith, including 'The Adventure of the Velvet Mask', 'The Adventure of the Tomb on the Hill', and 'The Secret of Shoreswood Hall'. Smith's stories are of the sort most eagerly devoured by avid fans of Holmes and Dr Watson: a would-be client tells Holmes a strange tale, and he is drawn in to a seemingly impenetrable mystery. Whether in the shrouding fog of London, or far from the city, deep in the countryside, these fast-paced stories, set in the late nineteenth century, before Holmes's disappearance at the Reichenbach Falls, recreate with wonderful fidelity the world of Conan Doyle's best Holmes stories. This captivating anthology brings to a new audience the very best of Denis O. Smith's work in a satisfyingly hefty compendium.
