Sherlockiana

Black PeterFor those of you who collect the Sherlock Holmes stories in foreign languages, we have THE ADVENTURE OF BLACK PETER: HAWAIIAN STYLE by Deb E. Tenney. Born and raised in Hawaii, Deb Tenney has translated the Holmesian story of whaling and sealing captain Peter Carey into Hawaiian Pidgin English. Pidgin varies in its structure and usage from region to region in the countries and islands of the South Pacific, yet those raised in one region easily understand the pidgin of other islands. It is the patois of the South Seas. Author Deb Tenney, born and raised in Hawaii, has put this fascinating yarn into Hawaiian pidgin in a manner that is humorous, entertaining and true to the original.

This is the second installment in our monograph series. We hope to produce other monographs as subjects of interest occur.

Action in the North AtlanticWhen is a ship a ship and when is it a barque? What is a steam packet? What are the duties of a steward? A captain? What did the Gloria Scott look like? Where is the Ganges River? How large is a saltwater crocodile? The answers to these and hundreds of other nautical questions can be found in The Sherlock Holmes Illustrated Cyclopedia of Nautical Knowledge, by Capt. Walter W. Jaffee, B.S.I., with an introduction by Sherlockian scholar and longtime Baker Street Irregular, Michael H. Kean.

Here, in one comprehensive volume, are definitions and illustrations of all the nautical references found in the Holmes Canon.
