The Penguin Complete Sherlock Holmes
The Penguin Complete Sherlock Holmes by Arthur Conan Doyle are the complete adventures of the original and best detective, containing four novels and fifty-six short stories about the most engaging detective of all time, with a foreword by crime writer Ruth Rendell. The detective Sherlock Holmes - who continues to enthral millions in film and TV adaptations starring actors like Robert Downey Jr and Benedict Cumberbatch - was the creation of Arthur Conan Doyle, whose crime stories have thrilled readers for well over a century. Sherlock Holmes is not only the most famous character in crime fiction, but arguably the most famous character in all fiction. In sixty adventures that pit his extraordinary wits and courage against foreign spies, blackmailers, cultists, petty thieves, murderers, swindlers, policemen (both stupid and clever), and his arch-nemesis Moriarty, Sherlock Holmes, together with his faithful sidekick Doctor John H. Watson, proves himself to be not only the quintessential detective but also the most engaging and entertaining company any reader could ask for. The Penguin Complete Sherlock Holmes allows readers to experience the entire case-history of Holmes and Dr. Watson from start to finish - the stories that have spawned such infamous characters as the devilish Moriarty, the devious Irene Adler and, of course, the legendary hound of the Baskervilles ...This edition includes a foreword written by crime writer Ruth Rendell. Penguin also publishes, in individual volumes, A Study in Scarlet, The Sign of Four, The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes, The Memoirs of Sherlock Holmes, The Hound of the Baskervilles, The Valley of Fear, His Last Bow and The Case-Book of Sherlock Holmes. 'The immense talent, passion and literary brilliance that Conan Doyle brought to his work give him a unique place in English letters. Personally, I'd walk a million miles in tight boots just to read his letters to the milkman' Stephen Fry 'Holmes has a timeless intelligence that puts him head, shoulders and deer-stalker above all other detectives' Alexander McCall Smith 'Now, as in his lifetime, cab drivers, statesmen, academics, and raggedy-assed children sit spellbound at his feet. No wonder, then, if the pairing of Holmes and Watson has triggered more imitators than any other duo in literature' John Le Carre Sir Arthur Conan Doyle (1859-1930) studied medicine at Edinburgh University, where he became the clerk to a surgeon whose diagnostic methods provided the model for the science of deduction perfected by Sherlock Holmes. He set up as a doctor and it was while waiting for patients that he began to write. Sherlock Holmes first appeared in A Study in Scarlet (1887). The Holmes stories soon attracted such a following that Conan Doyle felt the character overshadowed his other work. In The Final Problem (1893) Conan Doyle killed him off, but was obliged by public demand to restore the detective to life.

Harry Potter: Page to Screen
Eight Films, four directors, hundreds of actors, over 10 years of filming one unique series. Now Harry Potter: Page to Screen brings together every aspect of the series’ fascinating history in one comprehensive companion volume. When a seemingly unremarkable children’s book landed in the offices of David Heyman’s offices it was relegated to a ‘low-priority’ bookshelf. It was only when a secretary - leafing through volumes at random - happened to read it, love it and pass it on to the producer by hand that the series began its momentous journey to becoming an epic cult fantasy. Now Harry Potter fans can read about every aspect of the films’ development from casting calls to the creation of the wizarding world. With hundreds of never-before-seen photographs, in-depth chapters on magical creatures, artefacts and locations as well as a film-by-film breakdown of the expansion of the Harry Potter universe, this lavishly illustrated volume takes you behind the scenes of one of the most popular film series in history. Waterstones invites you to re-visit the films, characters and landscapes of Harry Potter. Read exclusive interviews with the cast about working and growing-up on set and discover Daniel Radcliffe’s own take on the challenges of being the face of the boy who lived. A beautiful chronicle of a unique film experience.
