Sherlock Holmes. Novelas

by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle

Los mejores libros jamás escritos El presente volumen recoge las cuatro novelas protagonizadas por Sherlock Holmes, el emblemático y perspicaz detective del 221 B de Baker Street: Estudio en escarlata (1887), El signo de los cuatro (1890), El perro de los Baskerville (1902) y El valle del miedo (1915). A lo largo de estas páginas, y con la ayuda inestimable del doctor Watson, Holmes recorrerá las calles de un Londres victoriano convertido en un laberinto de pistas falsas, resolverá una intriga originada en la India colonial, desentrañará el misterio oculto tras una antigua maldición familiar en los páramos de Dartmoor y se enfrentará a la organización de Moriarty en uno de sus casos más complejos. Una mezcla explosiva de crimen, suspense y venganza. Esta edición, que se abre con un estudio introductorio de Andreu Jaume, pretende homenajear el empeño editorial de Esther Tusquets, cuyo proyecto de publicar el canon holmesiano quedó interrumpido. Juan Camargo, experto en novela de masas europea y americana, ha completado la labor traductora. «No existe ni ha existido hombre alguno que aportara al descubrimiento del crimen tantos estudios y tanto talento natural como yo.»

Sherlock Holmes. Relatos

by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle

Los mejores libros jamás escritos El presente volumen recoge las dos primeras colecciones de relatos del canon holmesiano: Las aventuras de Sherlock Holmes (1892) y Las memorias de Sherlock Holmes (1894). Aquí se dan cita algunos de los más célebres cuentos de misterio protagonizados por el célebre detective y su ayudante, el doctor Watson: «La aventura de la banda de lunares», en el que las únicas pistas son las últimas palabras de una mujer y un inexplicable silbido en la noche; «Las cinco pepitas de naranja», donde una carta desvela una conspiración atlántica; o «El problema final», clímax genuino de las hazañas del personaje, que se enfrentará dramáticamente con su perverso archienemigo, el profesor Moriarty, en la catarata de Reichenbach. Esta edición, que se abre con un estudio introductorio de Andreu Jaume, pretende homenajear el empeño editorial de Esther Tusquets, quien tradujo magistralmente estos relatos en su proyecto de publicación del canon holmesiano al completo. «La vida es infinitamente más extraña que cuanto pueda inventar la mente humana.»

Sherlock Holmes. Relatos 2

by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle

Los mejores libros jamás escritos El presente volumen recoge las tres colecciones de relatos que completan en canon holmesiano: El regreso de Sherlock Holmes (1907), Su último saludo (1917) y El archivo de Sherlock Holmes (1927). Tras volver de una muerte que nunca tuvo lugar, Holmes sigue resolviendo los casos más complicados. En «La aventura de la caja de cartón», por ejemplo, debe encontrar al remitente de un horrible paquete que contiene dos orejas humanas. En otras ocasiones, tiene que impedir sucesos casi inevitables, como en «Su último saludo», donde una peligrosa arma no puede caer en manos del enemigo a las puertas de la Gran Guerra. O en «La aventura de la melena de león» donde él mismo narra, mientras disfruta de un merecido retiro en Sussex, cómo atrapó a un extraño animal homicida. Esta edición, que se abre con un estudio introductorio de Andreu Jaume, pretende homenajear el empeño editorialde Esther Tusquets, cuyo proyecto de publicar el canon holmesiano quedó interrumpido. Juan Camargo, experto en novela de masas europea y americana, ha completado la labor traductora. «El trabajo es el mejor antídoto contra la pena, mi querido Watson -dijo-, y tenemos uno para ambos esta noche.»

A Study in Scarlet

by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle Anne Perry

Doctor Watson, returned fresh from Afghanistan with an injured arm and shattered nerves from illness, moves to London on a pension. He is most introduced to Sherlock Holmes, with whom he rooms for some time. He is skeptical about Holmes' self professed deductive powers, and so Holmes allows him to tag along on a case that the police cannot solve. Needless to say, Holmes thoroughly impresses Watson with his deductive powers, and promises to keep records of all of Holmes' cases so that his excellent detecting doesn't go unrewarded. The first part of A Study in Scarlet leads to the arrest of the murderer, and the second part provides the story of the murderer's life and motives, previously unexplained. Part two takes the listener across the ocean to the original settlement of Salt Lake City in Utah, and a story of hardship, love, greed, Mormons, and revenge, and then back to London to sort out the explanations.

The Wild, Wild West: Thrilling Tales by Famous Authors

by Rudyard Kipling Mark Twain Ralph Waldo Emerson O. Henry Max Brand Charles Dickens Bret Harte Jack London Sir Arthur Conan Doyle James Fenimore Cooper Henry David Thoreau Stephen Crane Robert Louis Stevenson Oscar Wilde Washington Irving Zane Grey Henry Wadsworth Longfellow Ambrose Bierce Walt Whitman John Muir John Richard Stephens

A town that had a man for breakfast every morning.That's how Tombstone, Arizona was described in the late-1800s, bolstering the myth that a corpse would be found cooling in the town's dusty streets each sunrise. The reality was quite different and much less violent, of course, but that hasn't kept the fanciful folklore of the Wild West from being retold in the years since, across America and around the world.This book captures the quick-trigger temper and savage spirit of America's frontier days in The Wild, Wild West, an exciting compilation of factual and fictional stories about the Wild West by famous authors.This is a collection of works on the Wild West by many of the world's most famous authors from the 1800s, including Dickens, Wilde, Emerson, Whitman, Longfellow, Muir, Irving, Thoreau, Twain, Kipling, Bierce, London, James Fenimore Cooper, O. Henry, Bret Harte, Zane Grey, Max Brand, Stephen Crane, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle and Robert Louis Stevenson. The selections involve gunfights, outlaws, gold mining, the Pony Express, stagecoach robberies, cowboys, card sharks, vigilantes, lynchings, ghost towns, and sheep, along with tributes to Custer and to the Native Americans who did him in.In a Max Brand tale, a town offers to reward a gunslinger for bringing in a stage robber dead or alive, leading to a battle of wits in the outlaw's canyon hideout. A story by Stephen Crane involves four men who play a card game for fun which ends in death, while Jack London tells of a deadly struggle between a hard-working prospector and an opportunistic murderer over a load of gold. Then there's the very first story that introduced the Cisco Kid to the world, along with the jumping frog story that made Mark Twain famous.The vivid personalities and the stories they give rise to in The Wild, Wild West reveal the truth behind the embroidered legends of the Old West, even as they add to them.(300 pages, 62 illustrations)
