Sherlock HolmesThe Complete Novels and StoriesVolume II Since his first appearance in Beeton's Christmas Annual in 1887, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's Sherlock Holmes has been one of the most beloved fictional characters ever created. Now, in two paperback volumes, Bantam presents all fifty-six short stories and four novels featuring Conan Doyle's classic hero--a truly complete collection of Sherlock Holmes's adventures in crime!Volume II begins with The Hound of the Baskervilles , a haunting novel of murder on eerie Grimpen Moor, which has rightly earned its reputation as the finest murder mystery ever written. The Valley of Fear matches Holmes against his archenemy, the master of imaginative crime, Professor Moriarty. In addition, the loyal Dr. Watson has faithfully recorded Holmes's feats of extraordinary detection in such famous cases as the thrilling The Adventure of the Red Circle and the twelve baffling adventures from The Case Book of Sherlock Holmes. Conan Doyle's incomparable tales bring to life a Victorian England of horse-drawn cabs, fogs, and the famous lodgings at 221B Baker Street, where for more than forty years Sherlock Holmes earned his undisputed reputation as the greatest fictional detective of all time.

Loved the movie? Read the book!
Watson and Holmes' relationship is entertaining and stunningly realistic!
Remember Irene Adler?
What if I told you that she wasn't the only woman Holmes was fascinated with- perhaps even in love with?
It's not a joke, and it's not a fanfiction- you HAVE to read this series!

ah the classics...I guess that's why they are called classics...find out why Robert Downey Jr, is acting so cooky...they'll be reading the book in a 100 years...the movie will go by the wayside in 10...it's hard to believe that Sherlock Holmes and Watson are not real...Doyle's writing is like the reality show of writing...I am constantly compelled to go to Wiki and find out about Sherlock's history. Sherlock's technique is amazing...he was practicing forensic medicine before anyone else...if only he were real in the time of Jack the Ripper. But Conan Doyle, the author, IS real and his son Adrian claims that he was Sherlock in a way. Sherlock is also modeled after a few other characters in Doyle's time. Conan Doyle always leaves a few bits and pieces about the Holmes history to keep you going...there is Mycroft...and did you know that Sherlock was fascinated with two women, not just one.
