What is your favorite Sherlock Holmes story and why? Which characters do you find most interesting? Why do people still love Sherlock Holmes today?
I thought fans of Basil Rathbone and Nigel Bruce might be interested in a collection of their old radio shows. Mill Creek Entertainment"s "The Best of Sherlock Holmes" has 50 on episodes on 25 discs all starring Rathbone and Bruce except for "The Haunting of Sherlock Holmes" where Ben Wright stood in for Nigel Bruce who was ill for that episode. The sound quality is excellent on 46 of the episodes. 4 still have good sound quality but were not remastered. They are older shows not found on the Simon and Shuster collection. For less than $25.00 it is a great buy.
Sherlock Holmes is my favorite detective as well. As mentioned previously, the man has got to have one of the most clever minds ever.
And, while we're speaking of Holmes...CONGRATULATIONS, ROBERT!!!
My favorite mystery is the red headed league. I didn't really get the crime committed until the second time I read it
I've read all the Sherlock Holmes by Doyle, can anyone suggest another author who is good who has taken up the baton? I would like ot read more Holmes, but only if it is good stuff. There is a word for an author who continues a character and style from another author but I can't think of it right now.
Barrie Roberts has written several good Sherlock Holmes books. Is the word you are thinking of pastiche?
My favorite mystery is the valley of fear.
And I think it is a pity that Douglas died at
last.I love the guy.
And I want to make a friend,I love Ellery
Queen and Lincoln Rhyme too.I am from China.

It's hard to decide, but my favorite Holmes
story might be The Adventure of the Devil's
Foot. Mycroft is one of my favorite
characters, namely because he's Sherlock, but
lazy. I think that people still love him
because he's something we can all understand,
but never be. We can see his reasoning, but
we can't reproduce it when we try it
ourselves. At least, not so quickly and
