The Memoirs of Sherlock Holmes (Wisehouse Classics Edition – With Original Illustrations by Sidney Paget)

by Arthur Conan Doyle

THE MEMOIRS OF SHERLOCK HOLMES is a collection of Sherlock Holmes stories, originally published in 1894, by Arthur Conan Doyle.

The twelve stories (eleven in American editions) of the Memoirs are: “Silver Blaze”, “The Adventure of the Cardboard Box”, “The Adventure of the Yellow Face”, “The Adventure of the Stockbroker’s Clerk”, “The Adventure of the Gloria Scott”, “The Adventure of the Musgrave Ritual”, “The Adventure of the Reigate Squire”, “The Adventure of the Crooked Man”, “The Adventure of the Resident Patient”, “The Adventure of the Greek Interpreter”, “The Adventure of the Naval Treaty”, “The Final Problem”.

The first London edition of the Memoirs in 1894 did not include “The Adventure of the Cardboard Box”, although all twelve stories had appeared in the Strand Magazine. The reasoning behind the suppression is unclear. In Britain the story was apparently removed at Doyle’s request as it included adultery and so was unsuitable for younger readers.

This edition by Wisehouse Classics includes all of the stories with the original illustrations by Sidney Paget.

With both their reputations at stake, will they be able to salvage their careers without casting suspicion on one another?

Telemachus

by Peter Gray

Told through the medium of a colony of migrating birds, this is essentially a love story which explores the meaning of the word â??love’ to different individuals.

It’s about pain and joy, illusion and reality. It’s also about the fragility of love and the way it can be destroyed so easily for some, while for others, it’s the immutable spine of their very existence.

Tom John-Mary has two contradictory anticipations in his early days, both about females who will have a future influence on his life. Daisy, an unwelcome intruder, and Sally, the love of his life.

Daisy inserts herself into his respected family and Tom’s belief that Sally is to be his gift from Aves, God of Birds, is shattered. Meantime, Sally becomes paired with Jacob who, at an early stage, mistreats her and absconds.

Telemachus is the big red eagle at the end of the northern valley and from whose talons none return. Tom doesn’t know if he’s real or an illusion, as none ever return to say they’ve seen him. He’s the threat that’s there in the face of all life, the danger that’s met around any corner. In some ways, he’s the existential response to illogical teaching and distorted reasoning.

Follow this incredible story and discover the storms, twists, turns, tragedies and migrations that Tom and Sally have to endure before love can really start to soar.

A Christmas Castle

by Thomas J. Prestopnik

“What are you thinking about, Jack?” Gloria looked at him, knowing his thoughts were miles away in time.

Jack chuckled. “I was thinking about the Christmas night I found that shooting star stuck in a snow bank.”

Gloria curiously raised an eyebrow. “Excuse me?”

In this heartwarming novella, Christmas meets the butterfly effect when a young boy’s glance at a shooting star produces surprising results through time.

When Jack Mason was eight years old in 1966, he saw a shooting star on Christmas night. Then he tried to follow it, setting off a chain reaction that affected his life, and others, in ways he would only learn about eighty-two years later when he meets Gloria Grant at the Harbor View Retirement Home. This is a tale of ordinary people, distant memories and forgotten dreams–though sometimes even forgotten dreams can still blossom.
