Anthony Horowitz gets official go-ahead to pen Sherlock Holmes novel

The estate of Sir Arthur Conan-Doyle has granted the "Alex Rider" novels permission to write an authorized Holmes book.

I've not read any of Horowitz's other works, but purists online are understandably nervous/upset. Of course, there have been a zillion non-Doyle Holmes books over the years. The character and the concept is quite adaptable. I figure the original is always best, the adaptations range from ok to wretched. So I'm not gonna get worked up about it.

Actually, I think this, presumably unauthorized, one looks fun...

Anyone out there read it? More info on this "Further Adventures" series from Titan Book here.

Stephen Fry to play Sherlock Holmes' smarter brother

The great British comic/actor will play Mycroft Holmes opposite Robert Downey Jr.'s Sherlock in a sequel to last year's Holmes movie.

New BBC series places Sherlock Holmes in modern day

Not terribly excited by this prospect, although the casting of Martin Freeman (excellent in the British version of "The Office") bodes well.

The new show, Sherlock, will star Benedict Cumberbatch as Holmes and his sidekick Dr Watson will be played by Martin Freeman.

The series, which began filming this month, has been written by Steven Moffat, the writer of Doctor Who and the actor and novelist Mark Gatiss, star of The League of Gentlemen.

Definitely the best-looking people ever cast to play Holmes and co. Here's hoping it isn't a complete travesty.
