Sherlock Holmes is a fictional detective of the late 19th and early 20th centuries, who first appeared in publication in 1887. He is the creation of Scottish born author and physician Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. A brilliant London-based detective, Holmes is famous for his intellectual prowess, and is renowned for his skillful use of deductive reasoning (somewhat mistakenly – see inductive reasoning) and astute observation to solve difficult cases. He is arguably the most famous fictional detective ever created, and is one of the best known and most universally recognizable literary characters in any genre. Conan Doyle wrote four novels and fifty-six short stories that featured Holmes. All but four stories were narrated by Holmes' friend and biographer, Dr. John H. Watson, two having been narrated by Holmes himself, and two others written in the third person. The first two stories, short novels, appeared in Beeton's Christmas Annual for 1887 and Lippincott's Monthly Magazine in 1890. The character grew tremendously in popularity with the beginning of the first series of short stories in The Strand Magazine in 1891; further series of short stories and two serialized novels appeared almost right up to Conan Doyle's death in 1930. The stories cover a period from around 1878 up to 1903, with a final case in 1914. in this collection you will find: Novels: • A Study in Scarlet • The Sign of the Four • The Hound of the Baskervilles • The Valley of Fear Short Story Collections: • The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes • The Memoirs of Sherlock Holmes • The Return of Sherlock Holmes • His Last Bow • The Casebook of Sherlock Holmes

In the last of the Sherlock Holmes novels, the origins of his rivalry with Moriarty are revealed In London, there is a professor whose income runs to a modest £700 a year, yet in his office hangs a painting worth no less than £40,000. The author of a rarefied mathematical treatise on the dynamics of asteroids, he has twenty different bank accounts and a priestly manner that belies his vicious nature. His name is Moriarty, and he sits at the center of a vast and invisible web of crime. Years before their fateful meeting on the cliffs of the Reichenbach Falls, Sherlock Holmes vows to put an end to the professor’s secret reign of terror.   A coded message from an informant on the inside of Moriarty’s organization arrives at 221B Baker Street. No sooner than Holmes and Watson have deciphered the message—a warning that a man named Douglas of Birlstone Manor House is in grave danger—do they learn that Douglas is dead, his head blown off with an American shotgun. At a moated manor in the South of England, the dead man’s widow and best friend hold the keys to a mystery that reaches all the way across the Atlantic and proves just how powerful Moriarty’s fiendish influence has grown.   This ebook features a new introduction by Otto Penzler and has been professionally proofread to ensure accuracy and readability on all devices. “Every writer owes something to Holmes.” —T. S. Eliot   “Sherlock Holmes is the very foundation stone of the edifice that is crime fiction.” — The Times (London) “[Holmes] is probably the only literary creation since the creations of Dickens which has really passed into the life and language of the people.” —G. K. Chesterton  Arthur Conan Doyle (1859–1930) practiced medicine in the resort town of Southsea, England, and wrote stories while waiting for his patients to arrive. In 1886, he created two of the greatest fictional characters of all time: the detective Sherlock Holmes and his partner, Dr. Watson. Over the course of four novels and fifty-six short stories, Conan Doyle set a standard for crime fiction that has yet to be surpassed.

ESPY Host Joel McHale Responds To Criticism Of Caitlyn Jenner’s Arthur Ashe Courage Award

There’s been some serious backlash to ESPN’s decision to honor Caitlyn Jenner with the Arthur Ashe Courage Award, but that doesn’t bother ESPY Awards host Joel McHale.

The comedian and host of “The Soup” told HuffPost Live on Wednesday that he’s been asked a lot about Jenner’s award in the run-up to the ESPYs, which will air July 15, and he only has words of support for the Olympic legend and new transgender icon.

“There’s no time limit, I don’t think, on when you’ve accomplished something athletically for this award. Obviously it’s very controversial. People have very strong opinions about Caitlyn Jenner. But I think being the most famous American decathlete is a massive achievement, and there’s no doubt — some people don’t think it, but I think it’s courageous what she did,” McHale said.

And controversy aside, McHale added that he’s got more pressing concerns about his own job at the ESPYs.

“People are constantly asking me, ‘So, what do you think of [the award]?’ I’m like, ‘I didn’t decide this. I’m hosting the show. I’m just hoping the jokes land. That’s all I care about,'” he said.

Will she meet the fate of the other Unicorns?

Remembering ‘New York Times’ Giant Arthur Gelb

“A FAMILY can only develop with a loving woman at its center,” said the German writer Karl Wilhelm Fredrich Schlegel.

Kris Jenner, mater familias to the Kardashians, surely has that bromide embroidered on a pillow.

•I WANTED to wait until we all recovered from the excitement of it. Oh, come on, don’t say “What do you mean ‘it?'” You know I mean the lifelong nuptials of lovely working girl Kim Kardashian and musician Kanye West in Italy over the weekend. (Kanye rarely cracks a smile. That’s because he’s always thinking real hard about his brilliant music.)

Many “regular” people were involved, in one way or another, with their Memorial Day celebrations — barbecues or somber recollections of veterans who have given so much to this country. So Kim and Kanye’s wedding didn’t get quite the coverage it might have otherwise.

This is a crime! Two of the most exciting and talented and all-around nifty people getting married. The world should have stopped spinning a bit. Or altogether!

Two events of note. Rob Kardashian, the only member of the family who seems to be kind of ashamed of his relatives, fled Italy before Kim and Kanye tied that “forever knot.” Too bad. He missed Kanye speechifying at the wedding dinner. (Rob, he referred to your family as “the most remarkable people in the world.”)

I have to agree. Why they are remarkable, I can’t really say. Honest, I just can’t!

It’s too late for me now to be really bitchy about people in love and getting married

•THE death of the New York Times’ wide-ranging editor Arthur Gelb recently leaves many memories. (He was, with his wife Barbara, the premier historian on the works of playwright Eugene O’Neill with a 3rd volume to be published next year under the title By Women Possessed.)

It was under the autocratic, but privately charming Times head man Abe Rosenthal, that Arthur Gelb flourished and worked like a demon all his life.

I recall being out with the Rosenthals and Arthur one night and Abe suggested we go to Elaine’s “to see what’s going on there.” Arthur began to lecture me in the car, asking why did I always “pick on” the Times’ drama critic Frank Rich and give him such a hard time about the hard time he was giving Broadway?!

I was about to answer Arthur that if I picked on Frank, it was because he was so powerful and smart and had so much power that often his reviews just shut down many efforts that I thought deserved more of a chance to be seen.

But Abe, whose word was law, decided to defend me. He remonstrated with Arthur: “Now leave Liz alone!” She has a right to her column opinion just as Frank has a right to his. The Times is only enhanced by its critics. We are everybody’s target and Liz speaks for the public, as she should!”

After that, Arthur, to whom Abe was law, became my new best friend and he remained faithful until his recent death. But he had a favorite columnist in the Washington columnist Maureen Dowd. He worshipped her and he decided never to rest till the two of us met.

Poor Maureen had to give in and we have had a cursory, but amusing relationship ever since.

Through the years I always found my professional friendships at the New York Times to be valuable and interesting. Occasionally, I free-lanced entertainment articles for the Times and there was one brief moment when the Times seemed to lower its standards to talk about a gossip column. “I don’t believe you could take it even if offered,” said Arthur…”you make too much money to live on a Times salary.” As there was nothing to all this talk I just laughed. Nobody has admired the Times both from afar and up close as I have. I even went on to realize what a jerk I was to criticize Frank Rich. Today, I know he is one of the most brilliant analyzers around.

And then I always give thanks to the spirit of Arthur Gelb who gave me such an unparalleled vision of Maureen Dowd. He called her “one of the smartest women in the world.”

•I recall telling Arthur that the New York Times building in Times Square was not virgin territory to me. “I used to eat in your cafeteria every Sunday night.” Arthur, amazed, asked Why? “Well, I was working to stay alive in three different jobs and one was as a proofreader for Newsweek on Sundays. We were near the Times and went in a gang every time to eat in your cafeteria. It was very cheap.”

Arthur was aghast. The Times feeding people from its enemy, Newsweek? Well, I reminded him, it was before terrorism and they never asked for i.d.

Later, when the Peter O’Toole movie, My Favorite Year came out, about the early days of TV, I said to my movie companion over the credits, “This is about the 50’s!” He said, “How can you tell?”

I said “There are no guards on the elevators in the RCA building. Anyone can get in and go up.”

Ah, the good old simple days.

•HERE’S an example of how celebrity and fame have changed somewhat. Famous multi-millionaire movie director with multiple homes and scads of well-known friends and admirers. Not married. Does he surround himself with his now VIP friends and old acquaintances? No, he sees them occasionally.

His real life circulates around a group of people he has hired to work with him. He is with them virtually night and day. He spends every weekend calling them when he gets up and going to the movies with them and eating three meals a day with them. They are aspiring directors, producers and screenwriters themselves. They talk movies and pop culture and politics on which all of them agree. Each is paid a handsome salary just for the privilege of being around him. They love him but there is no question they are a paid entourage and they seldom have much time for their own private lives otherwise. They travel with him and there is more than one of them at a time.

His close friends understand this; he feels happier with these young people he hires than he does with his peers. He can relax around these employees who he sincerely feels are his close pals. Sex is not involved in this equation as he can get that anytime he wants to bother.

•SPRING IS here — if only for a minute. Be happy. Make the most of it.

Arthur Hailey Was My First Love

I am a sucker for the disaster movie. Any movie (good or bad) that the world is destroyed by earthquakes, asteroids, aliens, floods, tidal waves, giant spiders… I will watch. I once sat through an all-night movie feature in a downtown LA theater and watched five movies in a row where Los Angeles was destroyed over and over again. LA’s demise was my happiness.

I can trace this disaster obsession back to Arthur Hailey. It was the summer of 1970, my parents took me to a drive-in theater to watch Airport. In my memory, I was wearing great airplane pajamas with feet in them, but that is probably just me trying to be better dressed in memory than in actual life. For a six year old, the movie was incredible — I did not make a peep through the entire film. Watching Burt Lancaster, Dean Martin and Jacqueline Bisset on screen was one of my earliest memories and it still lives with me today. I watched every Airport movie with Airport 77 (staring my hero Jimmy Stewart) almost surpassing my love for the first movie.

Arthur Hailey’s books, including Airport, were recently released as eBooks and to celebrate this great book and movie, I decided to put the best 70s disaster movies in my Netflix queue and spend the next weekend living through the end of the world over and over again. Here are my favorites:

Airport – the classic, it gets no better than this movie. Jacqueline Bisset is the single stewardess, pregnant with the married Dean Martin’s baby. Helen Hayes has stowed away on the plane. All this drama and a bomb. It started the big blockbuster disaster genre and we should all be thankful.

Airport 77 – The third movie in the series. It is a little far-fetched, but still a good one. Any movie with Jimmy Stewart is great in my book. Throw in a little Jack Lemmon, Lee Grant and Olivia de Havilland and mix it with sleeping gas, art thieves and an underwater rescue and you have pure disaster movie gold.

Poseidon Adventure – I am not sure you could put more great things in a movie. Tidal waves, overturned cruise ships, ex-hookers married to cops, a hot Gene Hackman as a reverend, fire, floods and Shelley Winters swimming — it does not get better. I have watched this movie so many times and each time, I still cheer Shelley on and want her to live.

The Towering Inferno – Steve McQueen and Paul Newman working to save Faye Dunaway, Richard Chamberlain, Robert Wagner, Fred Astaire and OJ Simpson in the top of a burning building. The only thing to make this movie better would have been if Paul Newman and Steve McQueen had been secret lovers — that is how I would have written it.

Earthquake – This movie really changed the disaster movie for me. I now realized that you could watch destruction on a grander scale. If that destruction included Ava Gardner, all the better. I could watch the Hollywood sign fall again and again.

The Swarm – I am not sure it fits in the disaster movie genre, but with the all-star cast and general death and destruction, I include it. It was one of the first movies that really scared me. I kept looking for news on African killer bees for years after watching it. I love that the bee invasion coincides with the annual flower festival, what are the chances.

Rollercoaster – The only thing I love more than disaster movies is roller coasters. Combining the two things is a recipe for success. Only today, when reviewing the cast did I realize that Helen Hunt is in it — her first movie role. I can’t wait to watch this one again.

Black Sunday – Ok, this is more of a thriller than a disaster movie, but I still include it as part of my 70s movie education. The Thomas Harris (of Hannibal Lector fame) novel is as good as the movie. It was inspired by the attack at the 1972 Olympics and it seems all too real today.

When Time Ran Out – Considered the last of the big disaster movies, it was a commercial flop, but it has all the things that I like. Great cast, big destruction and corny story lines. I am not sure other people would include it on such a list, but I look at it as a book end to a great decade of films that shaped my movie and TV watching habits for the rest of my life.

Airport is still the best in my mind. Arthur Hailey will always be my first love. Of course, I will only be watching those movies after I see Godzilla this weekend. Sounds like a full weekend of great movies, I hope it is going to rain. Let me know if I should add others to my list.
