Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: We think of Sherlock Holmes and Doctor Watson, but far more seductive is the pairing of Holmes and Professor James Moriarty, 'the Napoleon of crime' - a rivalry unparalleled in the world of crime fiction. Fiercely intelligent and a relentless schemer, Moriarty is the super-villain as megastar. This wonderfully diverse collection by writers such as Martin Edwards, Jürgen Ehlers, Barbara Nadel, L. C. Tyler, Michael Gregorio, Alison Joseph and Peter Guttridge reveals not just the evil side of Moriarty's personality, but his humanity, his motivations and his human failings. Some of the stories are humorous, some scary, but all are hugely entertaining.

Download Free The Mammoth Book of the Adventures of Professor Moriarty PDF by Maxim Jakubowski Full Book and published by Simon and Schuster. This book was released on 2016-08-23 with total page 592 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: The hidden life of Sherlock Holmes’s most famous adversary is reimagined and revealed by the finest crime writers today. Some of literature’s greatest supervillains have also become its most intriguing antiheroes—Dracula, Hannibal Lecter, Lord Voldemort, and Norman Bates—figures that capture our imagination. Perhaps the greatest of these is Professor James Moriarty. Fiercely intelligent and a relentless schemer, Professor Moriarty is the perfect foil to the inimitable Sherlock Holmes, whose crime-solving acumen could only be as brilliant as Moriarty’s cunning. While “the Napoleon of crime” appeared in only two of Conan Doyle’s original stories, Moriarty’s enigma is finally revealed in this diverse anthology of thirty-seven new Moriarty stories, reimagined and retold by leading crime writers such as Martin Edwards, Jürgen Ehlers, Barbara Nadel, L. C. Tyler, Michael Gregorio, Alison Joseph and Peter Guttridge. In these intelligent, compelling stories—some frightening and others humorous—Moriarty is brought back vividly to new life, not simply as an incarnation of pure evil but also as a fallible human being with personality, motivations, and subtle shades of humanity. Filling the gaps of the Conan Doyle canon, The Mammoth Book of the Adventures of Professor Moriarty is a must-read for any fan of the Sherlock Holmes’s legacy. Skyhorse Publishing, as well as our Arcade, Yucca, and Good Books imprints, are proud to publish a broad range of books for readers interested in fiction—novels, novellas, political and medical thrillers, comedy, satire, historical fiction, romance, erotic and love stories, mystery, classic literature, folklore and mythology, literary classics including Shakespeare, Dumas, Wilde, Cather, and much more. While not every title we publish becomes a New York Times bestseller or a national bestseller, we are committed to books on subjects that are sometimes overlooked and to authors whose work might not otherwise find a home.

R. F. Keating, Michael Moorcock and Amy Myers. Almost all the stories here are specially written; the cases presented in the order in which Holmes solved them.

Download Free The Lost Chronicles of Sherlock Holmes, Volume 2 PDF by Denis O. Smith Full Book and published by Hachette UK. This book was released on 2016-03-03 with total page 544 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: '"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.

Download Free The MX Book of New Sherlock Holmes Stories - Part VII PDF by David Marcum Full Book and published by Andrews UK Limited. This book was released on 2017-10-24 with total page 566 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Part VII - Eliminate the Impossible: 1880-1891 features contributions by: Mark Mower, Jan Edwards, Daniel D. Victor, James Lovegrove, Gayle Lange Puhl, Thomas Fortenberry, Mike Hogan, Thomas A. Turley, Adrian Middleton, James Moffett, Hugh Ashton, Geri Schear, S. Subramanian, John Hall, Jayantika Ganguly, S.F. Bennett, Steven Philip Jones, Jim French, John Linwood Grant, Mike Chinn, Robert V. Stapleton, Charles Veley and Anna Elliott, and Shane Simmons, with a poem by Jacquelynn Bost Morris, and forewords by David Marcum, Lee Child, Rand Lee, Michael Cox, and Melissa Farnham. In 2015, The MX Book of New Sherlock Holmes Stories burst upon the scene, featuring adventures set within the correct time period, and written by many of today's leading Sherlockian authors from around the world. Those first three volumes were overwhelmingly received, and there were soon calls for additional collections. Since then, their popularity has only continued to grow, with six volumes already released, and now two more, Eliminate the Impossible, featuring tales of Holmes's encounters with seemingly impossible events – ghosts and hauntings, curses and mythical beasts, and more. In "The Sussex Vampire", Holmes tells Watson: "This agency stands flat-footed upon the ground, and there it must remain. The world is big enough for us. No ghosts need apply." In each of the stories presented in this massive two-volume collection, Holmes approaches the varied problems with one of his favorite maxims firmly in place: "... when you have eliminated the impossible whatever remains, however improbable, must be the truth..." But what, exactly, is the truth? 2017 is the 130th anniversary of the publication of A Study in Scarlet, the first recorded adventure of Sherlock Holmes and Dr. John H. Watson. What an amazing journey it's been! In addition to the pitifully few sixty tales originally presented in The Canon, published between 1887 and 1927, there have been literally thousands of additional Holmes adventures in the form of books, short stories, radio and television episodes, movies, manuscripts, comics, and fan fiction. And yet, for those who are true friends and admirers of the Master Detective of Baker Street, where it is always 1895 (or a few decades on either side of that!) these stories are not enough. Give us more! The forty-eight stories in these two companion volumes represent some of the finest new Holmesian storytelling to be found, and honor the man described by Watson as "the best and wisest... whom I have ever known." All royalties from this collection are being donated by the writers for the benefit of the preservation of Undershaw, one of the former homes of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle.

Download Free The Alternative Sherlock Holmes PDF by Peter Ridgway Watt Full Book and published by Routledge. This book was released on 2003 with total page 359 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Between 1887 and 1927, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle wrote sixty Sherlock Holmes stories, and his great canon has become the most studied chapter in the history of detective fiction. From the very first, the fascination of the original stories was such that other authors soon began writing new stories derived from Holmes. In almost every year of the twentieth century pastiches, parodies, burlesques, copies, and rivals of the detective appeared, but no comprehensive attempt has previously been made to collect and discuss these stories, all of which are of historical interest. The Alternative Sherlock Holmes does so, and provides a new approach to the Sherlock Holmes literature, as well as discussing many works that have for years remained forgotten. Although presented as an entertaining narrative, of interest to both the aficionado and the scholar, it provides full bibliographic data on virtually all the known stories.
