Below are items recently added to A Holmes & Doyle Bibliography (also known as "The Supplement"). Randall Stock—a fellow Sherlockian from California—suggested that this type of listing would be a useful addendum to the Supplement as another way to track new additions to the bibliography. I am thankful for his suggestion. New items will be presented in monthly installments. Sometime near the end of each month these entries will be “dumped” into the larger bibliography. As always, I am open to comments and suggestions that will make this research tool more useful.

Includes bibliographical references and index. // "The nineteenth century saw not only the emergence of the telegraph, the telephone, and the typewriter but also a fascination with seances and occult practices like automatic writing as a means for contacting the dead. Like the new technologies, modern spiritualism promised to link people separated by space or circumstance; and like them as well, it depended on the presence of a human medium to convey these conversations. Whether electrical or otherworldly, these communications were remarkably often conducted - in offices, at telegraph stations and telephone switchboards, and in seance parlors - by women." "In The Sympathetic Medium, Jill Galvan offers an analysis of the rise of the female medium in Great Britain and the United States during the Victorian era and through the turn of the century. Examining a wide variety of fictional explorations of feminine channeling (in both the technological and supernatural realms) by such authors as Henry James, George Eliot, Arthur Conan Doyle, Bram Stoker, Marie Corelli, and George Du Maurier, Galvan argues that women were often chosen for that role, or assumed it themselves, because they made at-a-distance dialogues seem more intimate, less mediated." "Two allegedly feminine traits, sympathy and a susceptibility to automatism, enabled women to disappear into their roles as message-carriers. Anchoring her literary analysis in discussions of social, economic, and scientific culture, Galvan finds that nineteenth- and early twentieth-century feminization of mediated communication reveals the challenges that the new networked culture presented to prevailing ideas of gender, dialogue, privacy, and the relationship between body and self."--Book jacket.

Srdjan Smajic argues that to understand how writers represented ghost-seers and detectives, the views of contemporary scientists, philosophers, and spiritualists with which these writers engage have to be taken into account: these views raise questions such as whether seeing really is believing, how much of what we 'see' is actually only inferred, and whether there may be other (intuitive or spiritual) ways of seeing that enable us to perceive objects and beings inaccessible to the bodily senses. This book will make a real contribution to the understanding of Victorian science in culture, and of the ways in which literature draws on all kinds of knowledge"--Provided by publisher.

The article explores the traditional objections to stakeholder governance along with other trends which should influence thoughts about such governance in the U.S. Includes a passing reference to Holmes. "...My students know that one of my favorite allusions is the story Silver Blaze, in which Sherlock Holmes solves a crime in part by noting the dog that did not bark. The dog's silence showed that the intruder was an insider; had it been an outsider, the dog would have barked. It is interesting in this case to notice the dogs that are not barking. Professor Greenfield touts his proposal as beneficial to employees. If he were right, we should see groups of employees forming firms and hiring capital...." The footnote for this passage (note 37) reads: "When Holmes refers to 'the curious incident of the dog in the night-time,' Inspector Gregory says, 'The dog did nothing in the night-time.' Holmes replies, 'That was the curious incident.' Arthur Conan Doyle, Silver Blaze, in 1 The Complete Sherlock Holmes 335, 347 (Doubleday & Co. 1930) ( 1893).".

Review of Michael Coren's biography of Doyle. "Not long after Arthur Conan Doyle published the first of his Sherlock Holmes stories in 1887, he met Oscar Wilde at a literary dinner party in London. Oddly enough, as Michael Coren notes in Conan Doyle, his biographical study of the Scottish author, the two got on famously....Such a significant character could not have come from the brain of an insignificant man, and Coren, a noted broadcaster and print journalist living in Toronto, underlines just what a fascinating and multifaceted character Arthur Conan Doyle was. To be sure, Doyle was nowhere near as brilliant as G. K. Chesterton, or as accomplished a fiction writer as H. G. Wells, the subjects of Coren's two previous biographies. But Coren has chosen for his third biography a man whose life, embodying so many of the confusions and passions of an era, exceeds in interest both Chesterton's and Wells'....".

For while much is known about Holmes - 'the world's most famous man who never was' - less has been revealed about Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, whose life rivaled that of any fiction. As a physician, sportsman, war correspondent, military historian, crusader for social justice and spokesman for spiritualism, his days were full of drama....".

Tony. "Did Sir Arthur Turn His Hand to Real Murder on Dartmoor?" Daily
Mail (London), September 11, 2000. 32.
"Its demonic appearance and massive, slavering jaws struck terror into the hearts of the unfortunate Baskerville family, providing Sherlock Holmes with one of his most famous cases. But real-life detectives have now been drafted in to investigate claims that the man who provided the inspiration for The Hound of the Baskervilles was murdered by Holmes's creator, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. Author Rodger Garrick-Steele claims Edinburgh-born Doyle stole the story from Victorian journalist Bertram Fletcher Robinson, who was denied any recognition for his work. Mr Garrick-Steele 58, a psychologist who spent 11 years researching his latest book, claims Doyle then murdered his 36-year-old friend to prevent the truth coming to light....The Sherlock Holmes Society dismissed the poisoning theory as 'complete bunkum' but Doyle expert Christopher Frayling, rector of the Royal College of Art, said: 'If the evidence is properly sourced, I cannot wait to read it.'".

"Spoofs and Dupes Radio." Sunday Telegraph (London), April 28,
All the Knoxes loved jokes and spoofs, as Penelope Fitzgerald shows in her wonderful joint biography of them, The Knox Brothers, just republished. As boys, for example, they wrote a letter to Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, denouncing inconsistencies in the Sherlock Holmes stories and including five dried orange pips, in allusion to the threatening letter in The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes. Later, Ronald Knox expanded the joke into an essay called "Studies in the Literature of Sherlock Holmes", a parody of Biblical scholarship in which he pretended to detect, from careful study of the text, that some of the stories must be fictitious inventions by a drunken Watson. Conan Doyle was delighted by the spoof and wrote to Ronald Knox to thank him. Nowadays we're rather more sensitive. Or so it would seem from the first programme, called Panic in the Streets, in a new series, The History of Fear (Radio 4, Monday), presented by the feminist historian, Joanna Bourke. On January 16, 1926, Father Ronald Knox (as he was by then) went into a studio in Edinburgh and delivered a talk over the air called 'Broadcasting from the Barricades'. An introductory statement explained that the talk was a work of humour and imagination and would be illustrated with 'sound effects', then a novelty. Knox proceeded to describe a riot of the unemployed in central London as though it were happening in real time. Parliament and the Savoy Hotel were blown up and the Minister of Traffic was hanged from a lamp-post. Meanwhile, an assistant in the studio produced crashes and bangs and even the sound of breaking glass. The broadcast took in many listeners, and Father Knox was much reprimanded in the press....".

"The great detective himself would no doubt have described it as a three-pipe problem. Why is the world dotted with statues of Sherlock Holmes while there is none to his creator? The anomaly may soon be corrected as Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, general practitioner, spiritualist and the man behind the world's most famous detective, realises his final vocation - as a marketing opportunity. Just as Rochester has reclaimed Dickens, Chawton cherishes Jane Austen and the Brontes have put Howarth on the map, a town is now trying to harness the commercial potential of Holmes. But it is not Edinburgh, where he studied, or Southsea, where he practised, but the apparently unexceptional East Sussex town of Crowborough.

"Well, it seems that Sherlock Holmes was a real person, after all. His name was Dr. Joseph Bell, a legendary medical diagnostician who taught at the Medical School of the University of Edinburgh when Sir Arthur Conan Doyle enrolled there in 1878 as a medical student. In fact, Dr. Bell chose the young Conan Doyle to be his clerk -- a devoted-slave position that entailed emptying the bloody buckets after an autopsy, trotting after the master on the forensic cases he handled for the Edinburgh police department, and writing down the brilliant principles of criminal deduction that would later issue from the lips of the immortal Sherlock Holmes. If it's proof you want, tune in to 'Murder Rooms: The Dark Beginnings of Sherlock Holmes,' a two-part film...".

Review of The Strange Case Of Sherlock Holmes And Arthur Conan Doyle (BBC). "'If the authors are to be believed,' says the screenwriter David Pirie, 'then the three great gothic archetypes -Sherlock Holmes, Frankenstein and Dracula -were just pieces of silliness, mere nothings.' Sir Arthur Conan Doyle always claimed that the Sherlock Holmes mysteries did not amount to more than a party trick...It is the circumstances of Holmes's birth and death that lie at the heart of Wednesday's drama. The ingenious screenplay joins the author as a young man of 33, just two years after he achieved success with his stories, and already determined to kill off his most famous creation. 'It was a remarkable act of literary savagery,' says Pirie, 'and I believe it proves that there were deeper roots to the character than Doyle claimed.'...The execution, however, is disappointing, largely because of the irritating insistence of the director, Cilla Ware, on shooting Henshall through shrubbery, random vases of flowers and blazing sunbursts, all of which lends the production a sweetly dreamy quality somewhat at odds with the nightmarish reality. The 90- minute film significantly flags halfway through, but those viewers who sit tight will be rewarded with a pleasingly Holmesian twist.".

"There's a famous 'Punch' cartoon of a giant Sir Arthur Conan Doyle - who died 70 years ago next week - sitting puffing contentedly with his head in the clouds and down at his feet an austerely midget Sherlock Holmes; the two are manacled together. The image could not be more simple, expressing the truth that Doyle could never accept that he would, in the public mind, be forever shackled to Sherlock. 'He takes my mind from better things,' Doyle wrote, when he hurled Holmes off the Reichenbach Falls in 1892; but by the time he wrote the last adventure of the fabulous detective 35 years later, American publishers were paying him a dollar a word, such were the readers' demands. Holmes's impact was immediate; and over the years, some 16,000 attempts have been made at parodying him, or re-writing him in pastiche form....".

Review of Sherlock Holmes and the Rune Stone Mystery By Larry Millett (Viking 336 pp., $23.95). "Given the current popularity of autobiographical reminiscences, it's not surprising that the mystery memoir is almost a whodunit category. An author finds a hidden, handwritten document featuring a well-known literary name. With footnotes, commentary, or afterword, the resulting book can be fun to read and a delight to fans of the original. But writers who practice the art of the imagined famous-person memoir run risks. Their supposedly 'lost' manuscripts may be only clever echoes of a familiar voice. Or they may stretch readers' credulity by constructing an improbable plot. In 'Sherlock Holmes and the Rune Stone Mystery,' coming this fall, Larry Millett avoids both traps. His leading characters are true to type, and his Midwest setting allows him to create a believable background for his transplanted detectives....'.

"Baker Street Irregulars will this week receive invitations to one of the greatest gatherings Sherlock Holmes buffs have known. The jamboree is not at 221B Baker Street, mythical home of the great pipe-smoking detective, but round the corner in Bond Street, where the world's largest and most important collection of Conan Doyle and Sherlock Holmes memorabilia is about to go under the hammer at Sotheby's.

Kate. "Sherlock Holmes and the Mystery of the Missing Statue is
Solved." The Independent (London), February 21, 1999. 13.
It is more than 70 years since Sherlock Holmes solved his last case, but he is still sent more than 40 letters a month to his rooms in Baker Street. One of the most enduring mysteries, however, is how this most famous of detectives came to be commemorated in Japan, Switzerland and Edinburgh but never by his home at 221B. The answer, when it finally emerged, was elementary, my dear Watson -- nobody had ever got round to it. But now, more than 60 years after the death of author G K Chesterton, who was the first to suggest a statue of the sleuth, planning permission for one has been granted to the Sherlock Holmes Society....".

British Sleuth as its Own, Reports Paul Webster." The Guardian

"The clues are so thick on the ground that even Dr Watson would have to exclaim: 'Elementary, mon cher Holmes, you have the blood, the brains and the flair of a Frenchman.' For the next three months, the French Sherlock Holmes Society will provide evidence from a dozen adventures to prove that the Baker Street sleuth would be several volumes short of an opus without his French ancestry and a fascination for Gallic art and science. At the opening of an exhibition in Paris devoted to Holmes's split loyalty, members of the society even made the bizarre claim that they had discovered a grave in the French capital where they believe the fictional character was secretly buried in 1957....".

Comments on scientific illiteracy with passing reference to Holmes. "Was Sherlock Holmes scientifically literate? Undoubtedly he considered himself a scientist - his first recorded words concerned a new test for haemoglobin he had just cooked up in the Bart's Hospital chemistry lab. And the great detective was forever making observations and deductions and rearranging his ideas in the light of experience. Yet with his second comment, delivered to Dr Watson, Sherlock Holmes surely fails. Holmes believed the Sun went round the earth. He was a pre-Copernican, and not prepared to change his mind. Dr Watson was absolutely horrified. How could a man of science make such an elementary mistake? Holmes saw no problem whatsoever. For him, the machinations of the solar system were no business of his. Sleuthing in London, not the cosmos, was his job. I'm not sure Holmes would be so stubborn today. These days, innocent bystanders regularly find themselves polled about things miles away (the movements of the Sun) or about events that unfolded years ago (the creation of the universe). Rather like Sherlock Holmes, and probably for very much the same reason, they often give the wrong answer. And by giving the wrong answer the innocent bystanders show themselves to be suffering from that modern malady, scientific illiteracy....".

Portrait of Klinger and review of his "New Annotated Sherlock Holmes." "Leslie S. Klinger is not one of those Sherlock Holmes obsessives who feel compelled to actually live as if they were distant relatives of the fictional detective. He doesn't greet visitors wearing a deerstalker hat and an Inverness cape, and his cheerful contemporary home in Malibu, Calif., is a far cry from the Victorian lodging house at 221B Baker Street where Holmes and his trusty sidekick, Dr. John Watson, lived in London. But as Holmes himself could attest, first impressions can be deceiving. Step into Mr. Klinger's home office and you will find the evidence of his abiding passion: Thousands of books about one of the world's most famous crime busters. This is the raw material for Mr. Klinger's project 'The New Annotated Sherlock Holmes,' a two-volume, 10-pound collection of all 56 Holmes short stories by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, complete with Mr. Klinger's exhaustive footnotes....".

"After writing nearly 2,000 footnotes for Arthur Conan Doyle's Sherlock Holmes corpus, one might think Leslie Klinger would take a respite. After all, he has a thriving tax law practice in Los Angeles. But when the three volumes of 'The New Annotated Sherlock Holmes' received glowing reviews upon their publication beginning in 2004 and wound up selling more than 50,000 copies, Klinger felt emboldened to ask his publisher, W.W.

A short, humorous piece on various borrowings and literary connections related to Holmes, taking as a starting point a quotation from a recent news account: "A French academic has just published a merciless study of Sherlock Holmes, exposing the great sleuth's educational, social and politically incorrect failings, which is bound to cause deep offence among Holmes's touchy idolisers."

Then yesterday, he and Jude Law, 35 -- who plays his sidekick Dr Watson -- had to flee the set with Ritchie when a petrol tanker exploded in a fireball....".

"A set of silver cutlery featuring Sherlock Holmes' legendary Hound of the Baskervilles is to be sold at auction later this month. The 42-piece set, which is expected to fetch up to pounds 6,000, was hidden in a wardrobe at Baskerville Hall, Clyro Court, in Mid Wales - the setting that inspired author Sir Arthur Conan Doyle to write his spine-chilling thriller. The crest showing a hound with a broken spear through its jaw with five drips of blood falling from its tip is on every piece of the dinner service. The hound, Black Vaughan, howled and roamed the nearby foggy moors of Hergest Ridge and was the inspiration of Conan Doyle's book. And the silver is believed to have been used at the fine banquets Conan Doyle would have attended during his numerous visits to the house in the late 19th and early 20th century. It lay hidden for 63 years until being discovered by antiques expert Martin Heath....".

"The world's foremost expert on Sherlock Holmes was found garrotted in his bed surrounded by cuddly toys and a bottle of gin, an inquest heard yesterday. Richard Lancelyn Green, 50, had become paranoid in the days before his death, telling friends and relatives that his home was bugged and that a mysterious American was out to besmirch his reputation. He died from asphyxiation after a garrotte was tightened around his neck. Yesterday coroner Paul Knapman called it a "very unusual death" and recorded an open verdict. He said there was insufficient evidence to rule whether it was suicide, murder or a deviant sexual act taken too far that had caused the death of the former chair man of the Sherlock Holmes Society of London....".

Using the computer game "Sherlock Holmes Consulting Detective to hone skills. "Well before the millions of viewers began tuning into the CSI (Crime Scene Investigation) series every week to get their 'investigative fix', fans of logic and deduction were already captivated by the crime-solving mysteries of the great Sherlock Holmes. While our day jobs may seem far removed from the adrenaline rush of crime-busting, you don't really need to wear a cape to get your share of it. The fact is, logic, deduction and investigative skills are very much at the core of more day jobs than one may realise! Unfortunately, there doesn't seem to be 'Logic, deduction and investigation 101' syllabus either in schools or universities, so unless your employer offers it, I guess you are expected to pick up the finer points from television or novels! Well, here's a better way. Playing designer games that not only teaches you the basics and helps you to hone your skills, but also transports you to the world of Sherlock Holmes, Jack the Ripper and more!...".

In 'Sherlock Holmes Was Wrong' (Bloomsbury: 196 pp., $20), Bayard analyzes 'the way the facts are presented, accepting no testimony without reservation and systematically calling into question everything' in and outside of the text....".
