9780988667006: The Deed Box of John H. Watson MD: A Collection of the Untold Tales of Sherlock Holmes

Long thought lost, the box containing the untold tales of the great detective Sherlock Holmes, deposited in the vaults of Cox & Co. of Charing Cross so long ago, has recently come to light.   It was presented to Hugh Ashton of Kamakura, Japan, the maiden name of whose grandmother was Watson. Ashton has transcribed and edited the adventures he discovered in there, and they have been published by Inknbeans Press.  Eleven adventures from the Deed Box series, 360 6"x9" pages reproduced in the style of the original canonical adventures, and bound together for the first time as a hardcover volume. These adventures of Sherlock Holmes are approved by The Conan Doyle Estate Ltd.

From the Author:

These tales represent the shorter pieces (excluding The Darlington Substitution) that I discovered in the deed box. All have appeared in the three previous "Deed Box" collections, except The Trepoff Murder, which first appeared as a serial on the Web, and then as a standalone ebook.These adventures should be of interest to students of Sherlock Holmes, including those which Watson never even mentions in the canon, shedding as they do new light on the character and methods of the great detective.The interior of the book has been designed to mimic as far as possible the typography and orthography of the Strand Magazine. We trust that old friends of Sherlock Holmes, as well as those who are climbing the 17 steps of 221B Baker-street for the first time, will enjoy these tales.

From the Back Cover:

For the first time, the eleven novellas and short stories discovered in the deed box that once belonged to Dr. John Watson, friend, confidant and biographer of the world's most famous and best-loved detective, Sherlock Holmes, are presented together. Cases in this volume:

  • The Bradfield Push: a story of low deeds in high society. Watson loses his watch and his heart.
  • The Odessa Business: revealing a new member of the Holmes family.
  • The Missing Matchbox: Sherlock Holmes encounters a remarkable worm, unknown to science.
  • The Case of the Cormorant: Holmes is persuaded to take a holiday-with unexpected results.
  • Colonel Warburton's Madness: an ex-Indian Army officer starts behaving strangely--why?
  • The Paradol Chamber: a sealed room, a dead man, and a smashed statue.
  • The Giant Rat of Sumatra: in which Holmes and Watson take to the high seas with the Royal Navy.
  • The Conk-Singleton Forgery: which, unless Holmes can solve the case, could wreck the economy of the United Kingdom.
  • The Enfield Rope: Sherlock Holmes comes up against problems in the highest of high society.
  • The Strange Case of James Phillimore: who steps into his house to fetch his umbrella--and is never seen again.
  • The Trepoff Murder: Holmes travels alone to Russia, and finds himself in the middle of deadly intrigues.
Hugh Ashton has been described in reviews as writing "as if channeling Sir Arthur Conan Doyle himself", and the tales told by him "could have been easily included in the original works". Sherlock Holmes fans, old and new, have discovered the delights contained in these accounts of Holmes' and Watson's world of fogs, hansom cabs, and dark doings in old-time London.
