“The Further Adventures of Sherlock Holmes” are a series of novels that are a pastiche of the Arthur Conan Doyle “Sherlock Holmes” series of novels. Conan Doyle the original author of the series was born to a strict and affluent Catholic Irish family in Edinburgh, Scotland. Even though his family had a lot of respect in the art world, he did not have the perfect family life given that his father was an alcoholic. However, while his father had very few accomplishments in life, Mary his mother was a well-read woman who loved books. She would delight in telling outlandish stories to Doyle her young son and her animation and enthusiasm are what sparked his imagination. According to the author, the happiest memories of his early childhood were the vivid stories told by his mother that stand out even more than the real experiences in his life.

In 1886, Conan Doyle began writing the manuscript for” A Tangled Skein” that featured the characters Ormond Sacker and Sheridan hope. It was the novel that would introduce him as an author to watch as it became a bestselling title. Two years later, he published the novel as “A Study in Scarlet,” and in doing so introduced Sherlock Holmes and his sidekick the inimitable Dr. Watson. The novel became one of the more than 60 stories featuring Sherlock Holmes that Conan Doyle would publish during his career. During the 1890s and early 1900s, he published his four most popular novels the “Hound of Baskervilles,” “The Sign of Four,” “The Memoirs of Sherlock Holmes,” and “The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes” upon which most pastiches are derived. Arthur Conan Doyle died of Angina Pectoris in 1930.

There have been many pastiches of Sherlock Homes over the years but the Titan Books published “The Further Adventures of Sherlock Holmes” is a very interesting one. Most novels in the series have Sherlock Holmes meeting and working with famous people in history in a creative an exciting series of new detective series. The series dives into one of the most thrilling and varied cases involving the most popular detective in the world. Sam Siciliano’s “The Angel of the Opera” asserts that Watson and Sherlock Holmes were not that close and that the stories written by Dr. Watson have a high level of inaccuracy in the portrayal of Homes. In the story Holmes teams up with a doctor and together they deal with the mystery of the “Phantom of the Opera.” Manly Wade Wellman and Wade Wellman’s novel “Sherlock Holmes and the War of the Worlds” sees Sherlock Holmes team up with Professor Challenge to go against a Martian invasion. It is a thought-provoking novel with some non-canon components such as a younger Mrs. Hudson and a hint of romance between Holmes and the character. Edward Hanna’s “The Whitechapel Horrors” sees Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson going after one of the most infamous serial killers in history in Jack the Ripper.

Sam Siciliano’s “The Angel of the Opera” is set in 1890 Paris, where the beautiful scene is the Paris Opera, a labyrinthine setting. The premise of the novel asks what would have been had Sherlock Holmes been convinced to go across the English Channel on a quest to find the motivation of the infamous ghost. Erik is the shadow ruler of the Opera’s true soul which is the nether regions while the soul of Notre Dame is Quasimodo the hunchback. The phantom is a tormented and defiant genius who despises what men love and while he lives is a constant threat to unwilling landlords and many men that may not even believe that he exists. But as is typical in a Sherlock Holmes’s case nothing is ever what it may seem to be at first glance. Every episode adds more thrills as a tempestuous drama plays out against an eerie setting that has to be one of the most interesting in the Sherlock Holmes universe. Lovers of both the Phantom and Sherlock world will love the charm of characters such as Christine Daae and Raoul Chagny her arrogant suitor. Henry MD his cousin also joins the inimitable detective in one of the most memorable stories of the series.

In “Sherlock Holmes and the War of the Worlds,” the world had changed when the Earth came under attack from Martian aliens in 1897. Sherlock Holmes teams up with Professor Challenger his sidekick and friend in one of the most dangerous adventures that intend to uncover the intent and nature of the alien attackers. Holmes has a crystal ball he got from a pawnbroker and together they use it in their investigations. Through the crystal, they can see a distant landscape and upon further investigation, they realize that they are looking at the planet Mars. It happens that the planet has been inhabited for years and through their newly acquired crystal they can see Martians though the aliens are also looking back at planet Earth through it as well. According to Holmes, the Martian sent the crystal ball to Earth seven years previously. Once the Martians realize that they have been discovered, the attack cycles begin as the towering tripods spread destruction and death on Earth. But then the professor and Holmes discover that the aliens breathe oxygen and hence they could not be from Mars given that there is hardly any oxygen on the Red Planet. While Earth’s gravity is greater than what they are used to, the higher levels of oxygen have made them faster and stronger but they are not made for common diseases on Earth.

“The Whitechapel Horrors” by Edward B Hanna is an atmospheric and spellbinding novel that has been called the best iteration of the Holmes stories since “Seven PerCent Solution.” Sherlock Holmes is investigating some gruesome murders at Whitechapel that he believes is the work of a serial killer that would come to be known as Jack the Ripper. Over several weeks, Holmes comes to realize that he not only has to catch a killer but that the most valued British institutions are under threat. He is in a crisis of conscience and he needs to decide between his love and patriotism for England and his code of honor which needs him to be a champion of justice and a detective. The author vividly evokes the atmosphere of Victorian London with its sordid and great details. There are people their habits, dress and language, the smell of poverty, hansom cabs and gas-lit lamps, and the rain in the streets. The novel is vintage Holmes with its excellent mystery and the inimitable detective that makes one feel as if they are in the presence of the great Holmes himself.
