Practical Handbook of Bee Culture by Sherlock Holmes

In the summer of 2016, retired broadcaster Paul Ashton made an astounding discovery at a car boot sale in Sussex. He found a copy of Sherlock Holmes’s Practical Handbook of Bee Culture, and bought it for £2. No other copy of this legendary volume – the only book Holmes wrote – has ever come to light.

The Handbook is the journal kept by Holmes from 1904 to 1912. 1904 was the year he retired from active investigation and moved to a farmhouse in East Dean. In 1912 he came out of retirement and left East Dean in order to outwit the German spy network in Britain on the eve of World War I.

Now 122 books on the Sherlock Holmes Audio Books Pinterest Board.

Practical Handbook of Bee Culture is available from all good bookstores including  The Strand Magazine, Amazon USA, Amazon UK, Waterstones UK and for free shipping worldwide Book Depository.

Out this week on Audio –  Sherlock Holmes and the Folk Tale Mysteries, Volume 2

Jewel thefts, missing persons, even murder are all elements in the world of the great detective Sherlock Holmes. What connects the stories in this book is that the cases he and his biographer Dr. John H. Watson investigate are based on adventures beloved of childhood. In a novel twist to the usual Holmes pastiches, Mrs. Puhl has based her plots involving Mr. Sherlock Holmes on folk tales, nursery rhymes, and other snippets of children’s literature. She has brought them into the Victorian era and kept them true to the expectations for Holmesian stories. But these are not children’s tales. There are no talking rabbits, no flying carpets, or magic wands. There is not always a happy ending. They are all grounded in the logical world of Holmes and Watson. Two men are determined to prove in a race which of them is faster. A child is missing and presumed dead. Can Sherlock Holmes help heal the mother’s broken heart? A baby is found in a basket at the foot of the 17 steps to 221b Baker Street. Did an ancient legend lead to a modern-day murder? Join Mr. Sherlock Holmes and his biographer Dr. John H. Watson as they explore the unusual cases brought to them from the land of bedtime stories and wise adages. You may never feel quite the same again about children’s literature.

Now 95 books on Sherlock Holmes Audio Books Pinterest Board

In this series of five short stories, Holmes and Watson continue their late investigations into dark crimes in 1920s London, joined by their excitable housekeeper at 221B Baker Street, the brilliant, buxom Miss Lily Hudson, and by Jasper Lestrade of Scotland Yard, the ambitious, respectful son of the late George Lestrade.

Thanks to Royal Jelly, Holmes is a fit 71-year-old, who has lost his interest in bees and returned to detecting, joining forces again with his colleague and friend, Dr. John Hamish Watson, a 73-year-old unfit twice-widower, who hankers after the good old days of derring-do.

Together they explore the case of the Hampstead Ponies, where a murdered baby is found upon the Heath; the Chelsea Necrophile and the mysterious organ that plays itself; the Holland Park Cannibal with a taste for home-made sausages; the truly nightmarish Richmond Werewolf; and the dangers of contagion in the search for the Hammersmith Hound.

Out this week on audio The Minister and the Moguls: A Case File from “The Redacted Sherlock Holmes”

Now 93 books on Sherlock Holmes Audio Books Pinterest Board

Holmes investigates a major industry and finds there is more to smoke than meets the eye.

The Redacted Sherlock Holmes:

Orlando Pearson, Watson’s successor as the assistant of Sherlock Holmes, was entrusted by the doctor with notes on cases too controversial to publish at the time.

Amongst other things these cases covered government failure to regulate the banks, excessively close links between a minister and industry, and an official cover-up of a sexual scandal at the very highest level in society.

It is inconceivable that such things could happen in the 21st century, but these stories, freshly unearthed, provide a fascinating insight into some of the issues facing society at the turn of the 20th.

The Redacted Sherlock Holmes is available from all good bookstores including The Strand MagazineAmazon USA, Amazon UK, Waterstones UK and for free shipping worldwide Book Depository. In ebook format it is in Kindle, Kobo, Nook and Apple iBooks(iPad/iPhone).
