Auch mehr als 125 Jahre nach seinem ersten Fall erfindet sich Sherlock Holmes immer wieder neu: Benedict Cumberbatch interpretiert den genialen Meisterdetektiv moderner und persönlicher denn je, Regisseur Guy Ritchie inszeniert ihn als humorvoll-amüsanten Gentleman und Herr-der-Ringe-Star Ian McKellen wagt sich an eine Version des pensionierten Holmes. Aber woher rührt der weltweite Mega-Erfolg des unkonventionellen Privatermittlers? Was fesselt Generationen von Lesern, Hörern und Zuschauern an den Geschichten von Sir Arthur Conan Doyle? Und wer ist das reale Vorbild für die vielleicht größte literarische Figur aller Zeiten? Der schwedische Sherlock-Holmes-Experte Mattias Boström begibt sich in diesem aufwändig recherchierten Buch auf Spurensuche, um das Erfolgsgeheimnis des Mannes aufzudecken.

The most prominent naturalist in Britain before Charles Darwin, Richard Owen made empirical discoveries and offered theoretical innovations that were crucial to the proof of evolution. Among his many lasting contributions to science was the first clear definition of the term homology—“the same organ in different animals under every variety of form and function.” He also graphically demonstrated that all vertebrate species were built on the same skeletal plan and devised the vertebrate archetype as a representation of the simplest common form of all vertebrates. Just as Darwin’s ideas continue to propel the modern study of adaptation, so too will Owen’s contributions fuel the new interest in homology, organic form, and evolutionary developmental biology. His theory of the archetype and his views on species origins were first offered to the general public in On the Nature of Limbs, published in 1849. It reemerges here in a facsimile edition with introductory essays by prominent historians, philosophers, and practitioners from the modern evo-devo community.

Sherlock Holmes Plays the Game is an interesting new collection of the further adventures of Sherlock Holmes and Dr Watson. It is unique in combining the style and intrigue of Holmes and Watson stories with the developing technology of turn-of-the-century Victorian England. Written in the original Strand Magazine style and told by Holmes’ companion, Dr John Watson, these previously untold tales unfold with wit and humour. Although conveyed in the classic Holmes style, these adventures see the pair involved in tracking down a lost Shakespeare manuscript, illusions, railways, airships, kidnap of animals, and people, testing of alibis, coded messages, advanced communications and electric weapons. Holmes applies his highly developed powers of deduction to whole new fields of understanding, and the stories deftly mingle fiction with facts and events of the day.
