“I choose to be only associated with those crimes which present some difficulty in their solution.”

— Sherlock Holmes, in The Cardboard Box

The sixty tales that make up the Sherlock Holmes canon — 4 novels and 56 short stories, published between 1887 and 1927 — have enthralled mystery fans now for over a century. They have also inspired numerous other writers to add to the legacy of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s original work, either in the form of sequels or new original novels featuring the well-known characters of Holmes, Watson and their associates, or by paying tribute with good-hearted parodies or pastiches (stories featuring characters and a writing style patterned after the original works). Whether you’re interested in reading new tales featuring the world’s foremost consulting detective, are curious about the crime-solving capabilities of supporting characters such as Mrs. Hudson, Irene Adler or Inspector Lestrade, or simply want to laugh at the outrageous adventures of such characters as Schlock Homes, this list includes something for you.

Although this list is large, we don’t claim to include 100% of the follow-up novels, parodies or pastiches that have ever been published. We have attempted to include as many Holmesian tales published, in English, by professional publishing companies as we could find accurate records for, with an emphasis on titles which have been published by U.S. publishers. This list does not include “Holmes” titles which were self-published or put out by vanity presses. This list is also composed mostly of titles for adults. If you know of any titles appropriate to this list, which are not included here, we’d appreciate hearing about them. You can send e-mail to the appropriate staff by visiting our Ask a Librarian page.

In an effort to include as many interesting Holmesian titles as possible, we’ve included numerous titles on this list which are not owned by the Lincoln City Libraries. These appear here for the sake of providing complete series listings, or to identify classic Sherlock Holmes titles which are long out-of-print. All books owned by Lincoln City Libraries are hotlinked to their entries in our library catalog, so that you may check on their current availability. If you see a title on this list that is not hot-linked to our collection, please consider ordering it through our Interlibrary Loan department.

Note: Titan Books has released a series of Holmesian novels under their “The Further Adventures of Sherlock Holmes” series banner — some were reprints of older titles by previous publishers and some were newly commissioned for this imprint. In this series, Holmes and Watson often encounter the paranormal, unexplained, supernatural, or even alien invasions. Multiple authors have contributed to this ongoing series over the years, all of whom are in the list below under their individual names. The authors in this series include: Richard L. Boyer, Eric Brown, Carole Bugge, David Stuart Davies, Stuart Douglas, Loren Estleman, Philip Jose Farmer, Edward B. Hanna, H. Paul Jeffers, Barrie Roberts, Fred Saberhagen, Steven Savile & Robert Greenberger, William Seil, Sam Siciliano, Daniel Stashower, Daniel D. Victor, Manly Wade Wellman.

Original Radio Programs

The New Adventures of Sherlock Holmes

From 1939-1946, Americans gathered around their radios to listen to The New Adventures of Sherlock Holmes — featuring Basil Rathbone as the famous crime solver and Nigel Bruce as his able assistant, Dr. Watson. Witty, fast-paced and always surprising, these great radio plays — written by the prolific writing team of Anthony Boucher and Denis Green — are as fresh today as they were then. 52 episodes of this radio program were released in pairs on 26 tapes in the 1980s and 1990s, and the library still owns many of them. Although a few of the stories are adaptations of actual “canon” tales, most of these are new “original” works for radio, and are therefore included in this list of Holmesian followups, sequels, pastiches and parodies.

Motion Pictures and Television

Sherlock Holmes and Doctor Watson have been popular characters in dozens of television and film adaptations of the original Conan Doyle stories, not to mention all of the “original” stories made specifically for the big and small screens. It has been conservatively estimated that Sherlock Holmes is perhaps the most frequently adapted literary character to appear on screen. Holmes first appeared on screens in a 1900 short (Sherlock Holmes Baffled), and in recent years has achieved all-new levels of popularity with new films starring Robert Downey Jr. in the role, and television series Sherlock (starring Benedict Cumberbatch), and Elementary (starring Jonny Lee Miller). The Lincoln City Libraries own DVDs of several of the Holmesian films or TV series, listed below — however this merely scratches the surface of Holmes appearances in these two mediums.
