Who Is Sherlock from the Author: Lynnette Porter. Nearly 130 years after the introduction of Sherlock Holmes to readers, the Great Detective's identity is being questioned, deconstructed, and reconstructed more than ever. Readers and audiences, not to mention scholars and critics, continue to analyze who Sherlock Holmes is or has become and why and how his identity has been formed in a specific way. The films Sherlock Holmes, Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows, and Mr. Holmes and television series Sherlock and Elementary have introduced wildly divergent, yet fascinating portrayals that reveal as much about current social mores and popular culture as about the detective. More than ever, fans also are taking an active role in creating their own identities for Holmes through fan fiction and art, for example. "Who is Sherlock Holmes?" is still a viable question. The answers provided by illustrators, scriptwriters, directors, costume designers, set designers, actors, scholars, and fans provide insights into both Victorian and the modern-day Sherlock. Like the many disguises the Great Detective has donned throughout canon and adaptations, his perceived identities may be surprising or shocking, but they continue to make us look ever more closely to discover the real Sherlock Holmes.

Dr Joe Bell from the Author: Ely Liebow. In 1892, Arthur Conan Doyle, famous almost overnight as the creator of Sherlock Holmes, wrote to his former medical school mentor, Dr. Joseph Bell: "It is to you that I owe Sherlock Holmes." Now the first full-length biography of Joe Bell, as he was affectionately known to all of Edinburgh, has been written. It is a biography for which the world is ready. It turns out that he not only had much in common with the Great Detective, but also with Conan Doyle. Ely Liebow. Emeritus Professor at Northwestern University and former Sir Hugo (Pres.) of Sir Hugo's Companions in Chicago, had access to the good doctor's private Journal; interviewed his great-grandson; tracked down the son of Joe Bell's daughter's gardener; and spoke with a Kentish Lady (appointed a shepherdess on the Downs by the Crown in WWII) who knew Joe Bell and his family. This volume is required reading for all people interested in Victorian medicine, in Sherlock Holmes and Doctor Watson, and in the history of detective fiction.
