A Reader’s Companion to Sherlock Holmes by Father J. Michael Venditti Sir Arthur Conan Doyle wrote in his memoirs, “It is a great mistake to start putting out cargo when you have hardly stowed any on board,” explaining why he didn’t become an author until relatively late in life. Father J. Michael Venditti has Sherlock Holmes cargo in abundance and his A Reader’s Companion to Sherlock Holmes offers fans a friendly and intriguing perspective into the classic stories. Venditti hopes to encourage new readers to crack open the tales of the Sleuth of Baker Street, while offering fresh insight for those already familiar with the cases. This is not a book of literary criticism of the Holmes tales – instead Venditti dispels myths and misconceptions about the works, as well as offers insight into the man who created them. Part biography and part history, Venditti’s book frames the Holmes canon as only an avid fan can do. This Companion will send the reader straight to the pages of the Holmes tales with historical context to bring them to vivid life.

Taking up the historical evolution of Darwin and his theories and the cultural responses they have inspired, Reflecting on Darwin poses the following questions: 'How are the apparatuses in the mid-nineteenth century and at the turn of the twenty-first century interconnected with bio-scientific paradigms in art, literature, culture and science?' 'How are naturalism, determinism and Darwinism - the eugenics of the nineteenth century and the genetic coding of the twentieth century - positioned, embodied and staged in various media configurations and media genres?' and 'How have particular media apparatuses formed, displaced or stabilized the various concepts of humankind in the framework of evolutionary theory?' Ranging from the early circulation of Darwin’s ideas to the present, this interdisciplinary collection pays particular attention to Darwin’s postmillennial reception. Beginning with an overview of the historical development of contemporary ecological and ethical fears, Reflecting on Darwin then turns to Darwin’s influence on contemporary media, neo-Victorian literature and culture, science fiction literature and film, and contemporary theory. In examining the plurality of ways in which Darwin has been rewritten and reappropriated, this unique volume both mirrors and inspects the complexity of recent debates in Victorian and neo-Victorian studies.

Norman Schatell was the leading Sherlock Holmes artist of the 1970s. 'The Lighter Side of Sherlock Holmes' is a collection of over 300 humorous cartoons and illustrations based on the characters that appear in Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's' famous stories. Many of the cartoons and drawings originally appeared in 'The Baker Street Journal', the British 'Sherlock Holmes Journal', 'The Armchair Detective', 'The Baker Street Miscellanea', and 'The Serpentine Muse'. Murder Ink, a former New York City mystery book shop, used fifteen of the cartoons to illustrate a line of stationery. The book includes the comical 'Arts and Crafts' Sherlock Holmes drawings, 'The Anthropological Holmes' (a fanciful look at Sherlock Holmes in ancient civilizations and around the world), and many of the illustrated envelopes he mailed to his friends. The book is a must for all Sherlock Holmes buffs - and a treat for anyone who enjoys the stories, movies, and television shows.

Arguably the most famous and recognized detective in history, Sherlock Holmes is considered by many to be the first pop icon of the modern age. Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's fictional detective has stood as a unique figure for more than a century with his reliance on logical rigor, his analytic precision, and his disregard of social mores. A true classic, the Sherlock Holmes character continues to entertain twenty-first-century audiences on the page, stage, and screen. In The Philosophy of Sherlock Holmes, a team of leading scholars use the beloved character as a window into the quandaries of existence, from questions of reality to the search for knowledge. The essays explore the sleuth's role in revealing some of the world's most fundamental philosophical issues, discussing subjects such as the nature of deception, the lessons enemies can teach us, Holmes's own potential for criminality, and the detective's unique but effective style of inductive reasoning. Emphasizing the philosophical debates raised by generations of devoted fans, this intriguing volume will be of interest to philosophers and Holmes enthusiasts alike.
