Sherlock Holmes vs. Dracula : or, The adventure of the sanguinary count by John H Watson( Book )

1 edition published in 1978 in English and held by 433 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Despite the comic-book title, this is an example of the more cautious and studied sort of pseudo-Sherlock, with lots of references to the Canon and Watson in familiar "Good Lord!" form. Not that the purist approach makes Estleman's academic, short-story-sized notion any more prepossessing. The premise: a Russian ship arrives in England with all aboard de-blooded and dead, then disoriented children start turning up on Hampstead Heath with wounds on their throats, so an intrigued Holmes follows the clues to a vaulted chamber where Brain Stoker's Van Helsing is driving a stake through a vampirette's heart. Holmes thus learns of Dracula and seeks out his London hiding places, and the Count responds by kidnapping Mrs. Watson ("the fiend has my wife"). As usual, Holmes seems to die but is quickly resurrected, and no doubt he'll be surfacing again soon in still other jiggers of literary milk-of-magnesia for the Baker Street Irregulars

The great detective at the crucible of life ; or, The adventure of the rose of fire by Thos. Kent Miller( Book )

1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Across Ethiopia and beyond, Sherlock Holmes encounters both the hideous and the divine, ripping asunder the fragile veil separating us from worlds unknown -- all while in the company of the renowned Allan Quatermain. The last of Allan Quatermain's true African adventures to appear, "The Treasure of the Lake", was published nearly a century ago in 1926. Those who lusted to vicariously accompany Quatermain on new perilous treks into the vast reaches of the "Dark Continent" (as they had in "King Solomon's Mines") had no choice but to remain disappointed. UNTIL NOW! Recently found amongst some obscure papers at Brown University, this new manuscript chronicles a complex and mysterious quest headed by Quatermain deep into the earthquake-and volcano-ripped Danakil Desert of Ethiopia in 1872, accompanied by his devoted aide-de-camp Hans and a host of nineteenth century's most prodigious luminaries, including astronomer Maria Mitchell, volcanologist Axel Lindenbrock, and gunnery sergeants Daniel Dravot and Peacy Carnehan. Along the way, this ragtag troop is brutally attacked in the desert by its trophy-hunting denizens, and then they discover a 2,000-year-old lost city. Yet Holmes' and Quatermain's quest is not merely one of surviving in Ethiopia's beautiful yet torturous landscapes; they must confront horror and overcome it

It is 1925. Watson, alone since the death of his second wife, learns of another death. Mycroft Holmes was found dead at his club.

Meeting at 221B after the service, Watson discovers new paint, new furniture, and a new Hudson. Then Holmes reveals that Mycroft had not, in fact, died of natural causes. Mycroft had been brutally murdered by someone determined to erase the men, then called "musical" -- gay men. A note, left with Mycroft's body, says the murderer has a list of targets, and Sherlock's name is high on the list
