1. Dondis, Harold, and Patrick Wolff. "Chess Notes." The Boston Globe, May 20, 2002: C8.

"The matter of how to handle women's chess has been a dilemma for American chess for years. Women have traditionally been weaker players than men and there has been much debate over this subject. There has been the feeling that women shy from head-to-head competition and, perhaps, from defeating men. However, by winning at chess, they will earn respect. One role model must surely be Irene Adler, the only person in the works of Conan Doyle ever to outwit Sherlock Holmes. In the short story 'A Scandal of Bohemia,' Dr. Watson wrote of Adler, 'To Sherlock Holmes, she was always the woman. I have seldom heard him mention her under any other name. In his eyes she eclipses and predominates the whole of her sex.'...Still, the only person to outwit Sherlock Holmes would not be able to join the Speckled Band, which is the Sherlock Holmes Club that meets annually on Boylston Street. The popular Speckled Band simply does not admit women."

2. Hartston, William. "Chess." The Independent (London), October 21, 1996: 26.

A chess problem involving Holmes and Watson. "'Professor Moriarty is defeated,' exclaimed Dr Watson,' as he peered at the position that stood upon the chess board on a table in the centre of the floor. Sherlock Holmes and Dr Watson had rushed to the rooms of Reichenbach Falls chess club when they heard that Moriarty was contesting the final of the club championship. They were at first dismayed to find the game over and Moriarty gone by the time they arrived, yet Watson's sadness quickly turned to joy on seeing the position. Black was checkmated, and, as the name cards clearly insisted, Moriarty had been playing Black...."

3. Pein, Malcolm. "Chess." The Sunday Telegraph (London), March 23, 2008: 7.93.

"Given that Sherlock Holmes possessed one of the finest analytical minds in fiction, it seems extroardinary that he was not a fine chess player. There is no mention of him playing the game in the writings of Arthur Conan Doyle. To amplify the point I ran a quick check on a chess database of more than three million games and there was not a single one attributed to anyone by the name of S. Holmes. I am indebted to Edward Winter's unerringly excellent Chess Notes, a regular digest of matters to do with chess history, for the following quotation from The Adventure of the Retired Colourman in 'The Case Book of Sherlock Holmes': 'Amberley excelled at chess - one mark, Watson, of a scheming mind.' So perhaps Holmes did not have a high opinion of the game or its practitioners. There are many chess stories that parody the Sherlock Holmes adventures, including The Chess Mysteries of Sherlock Holmes by Professor Raymond Smullyan, which can be found secondhand on Amazon...."

7. Breeden, John, II. "Awakened: The Game Is Afoot." The Washington Post, October 19, 2007: WE53.

"It has been a while since Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's famous detective, Sherlock Holmes, and his loyal sidekick, Dr. Watson, have solved mysteries on our computer screens. In Sherlock Holmes: The Awakened, they battle unholy minions created by another famous writer, Howard Phillips Lovecraft, including the elder god Cthulhu and the crazy cultists who worship him. Fans of either writer should feel at home. Holmes is top-notch at solving mysteries with attitude, and the Lovecraft angle makes the game creepy. The Awakened, played in first person, features extremely good-looking 3-D environments....The game features traditional puzzles...; physical puzzles...; and even the analysis of chemicals and other substances in Holmes's laboratory....Combining the worlds of two great writers into one game is ingenious. And although at first they don't seem to go together, it ultimately works."

"The title requires junior proteges of the legendary literary character work through 16 cases by deciphering a variety of visual puzzles. This fun, casual gaming experience set in Victorian England offers environmental conundrums and the use of reasoning, observation and memorization to quickly isolate evidence and suspects and solve a crime.

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!
