The lost adventures of Sherlock Holmes : based on the original radio plays by Dennis [sic] Green and Anthony Boucher by Ken Greenwald( Book )

The Sherlock Holmes radio plays of the 1940s were eagerly received by fans of the Great Detective everywhere. Starring Basil Rathbone and Nigel Bruce, these taut, well-written broadcasts often dealt with questions only hinted at or left unanswered by the original Conan Doyle stories. Recently, an entire season of broadcasts was discovered, resulting in the 13 new mystery-adventures collected in this book. Join Holmes & Watson as they struggle with a headless monk on the mist-shrouded moors; as they discover how a priceless painting was stolen from a locked room; or as they try to help a terrified man who wakes up each morning with blood on his hands. Based on the Denis Green/Anthony Boucher radio plays, and written in book form by Ken Greenwald, these tales present Holmes and Watson at their absolute sleuthing best. --Provided by publisher
Rocket to the morgue by Anthony Boucher( Book )

19 editions published between 1942 and 2019 in English and held by 271 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Legendary science fiction author Fowler Faulkes may be dead, but his creation, the iconic Dr. Derringer, lives on in popular culture. Or, at least, the character would live on if not for Faulkes's predatory and greedy heir Hilary, who, during his time as the inflexible guardian of the estate, has created countless enemies in the relatively small community of writers of the genre. So when he is stabbed nearly to death in a room with only one door, which nobody was seen entering or exiting, Foulkes suspects a writer. Fearing that the assailant will return, he asks for police protection, and when more potentially-fatal encounters follow, it becomes clear to Detective Terry Marshall and his assistant, the inquisitive nun, Sister Ursula, that death awaits Mr. Foulkes around every corner. Now, they'll have to work overtime to thwart the would-be murderer-- a task that requires a deep dive into the strange, idiosyncratic world of science fiction in its early days. With characters based heavily on Anthony Boucher's friends at the Manana Literary Society, including Robert Heinlein, L. Ron Hubbard, and Jack Parsons, Rocket to the Morgue is both a classic locked room mystery and an enduring portrait of a real-life writing community. Reprinted for the first time in over thirty years, the book is a must-read for fans of mysteries and science fiction alike
