A new twist on old content. Are there any other Sherlock Holmes stories whose plot could be "pulp-ified" to produce a shocking cover?
 
What could be better than a sexed up Sherlock Holmes story? At least that's what the cover would have you believe...

The Crooked Man. A dead body on the floor by the fireplace with blood pooling around his head, a scantily clad woman fainting dramatically on the sofa, and a dark, hunched, menacing figure in the window with lighting or some other dramatic lighting effect behind him.

Episode 60 of the +I Hear of Sherlock Everywhere podcast concerns the original stories and the first 60 years of Sherlock Holmes in the world.
 
Join us as we explore Sherlock Holmes from 1887-1947, including the stories, their author and the budding world of Sherlockians and Sherlockian scholarship.

I just realized when the show will cover the next 60 years that will go from 1947 to 2007, the year of the first I Hear of Sherlock Everywhere podcast.

A question came to me recently: what is the most "average" story in the Canon? Average intended, in this case, as the most stereotypical story - ie, if you took all of following characteristics, can you pick a single story which had the most common characteristics?

Crime: Murder, I believe, is the most common crime, blackmail coming second
Villain: Male (THOR), human (SILV, partially)
Narrator: Watson, definitely (BLAN), and preferably present throughout the story (MUSG)
Setting: London, I presume?
And, the elusive "The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time" - is there something which makes this story more memorable than others: Holmes doesn't solve the crime (YELL), the villain is not brought to justice (ABBE, which I have to admit is my favorite story for this very reason), Watson gets shot (3GAR) or faint, justifiably of course (EMPT), no two-part stories (NAVA)? 
Are there any other suggested characteristics?

I was thinking of putting together a (mostly multiple choice) survey to have readers fill it out for a random adventure, because I haven't time to figure it out for all 56! But perhaps someone else has already done this.

[In passing though, I did find this rather useful looking resource though for a quick review of the stories: ]http://mcmurdoscamp.wordpress.com/story-summaries/

Interesting.  Thanks for the link, Dianna.

As I've been re-reading the canon (after many years), I just finished "The Adventure of the Reigate Squires," and it is such an entertaining story! I would love to see it acted by Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman, as I can see some of the BBC's Sherlock's characteristics in Holmes in this story, such as his skill at deceiving others in order to gain information.

It would be interesting to see how they might update that, since handwriting played such a crucial role in that. Not sure that we see as many handwritten items these days.

Our research shows that "The Reigate Squires" has been filmed only three times - once with the prolific Eille Norwood in 1922; once with Alan Wheatley in 1951; and the first time in 1912 starring Georges Tréville. More info at http://www.imdb.com/find?q=reigate+squires&s=all

This is it. The original, exhaustively annotated, ten-volume edition of the Sherlock Holmes stories by Edgar Award winner Leslie S. Klinger. It's the most complete collection of Sherlockian scholarship and commentary ever assembled. No Sherlockian bookshelf is complete without this landmark series

Written in the 19th century, but some scenes seem to be so modern...

We thought this might be a fun way of reviewing "The Red Headed League." +1 if you agree.
