The Ghosts in Baker Street: New Tales of Sherlock Holmes
Martin H. Greenberg (Editor)
078671400X
January 2006
Paperback
·
 
From Publishers Weekly
Pitting the deductive skills of the great rationalist Sherlock Holmes against mysteries that may have an otherworldly source intrigued the detective's creator, as most notably shown by The Hound of the Baskervilles, and has inspired a legion of pastiche writers. This all-original anthology from the distinguished trio of Greenberg, Lellenberg and Stashower is an improvement over a similar volume, Michael Reaves and John Pelan's Shadows over Baker Street (2003), which attempted to combine the sleuth with the eldritch horrors of H.P. Lovecraft. Few of the 10 stories in this follow-up, however, raise even a momentary chill. The highlight, Gillian Linscott's "The Adventure of the Late Orang Outang," captures Conan Doyle's style, even if the mystery is less than baffling. Sherlockians may find the three essays at the...

Science, Money, and Politics

Jan 2001
Hardcover
·
 
Book Review
Science, in the abstract, is supposed to be nonpolitical, even to transcend politics entirely. In truth, though, science is always conditioned by political reality--and by money.

So writes journalist Daniel Greenberg in this wide-ranging indictment of the way in which science is conducted in the United States. Although funding for scientific research has been readily available since the end of World War II, he maintains, research bureaucrats have transformed the enterprise into "a clever, well-financed claimant for money" and the successful quest for that funding into a condition of employment and advancement. Given that climate, Greenberg suggests, basic research has suffered, so that many diseases go unconquered, while more politically glamorous investigations are rewarded. Increasingly corporatized--industry, he...

Murder, My Dear Watson: New Tales of Sherlock Holmes
Martin H. Greenberg (Editor)
0786712449
September 2003
Paperback
·
 
From Publishers Weekly
Like its predecessor from the same editors, Murder in Baker Street (2001), this solid anthology offers some choice Sherlockian plums. The ubiquitous Watson often takes center stage in these 10 tales: Colin Bruce's "Adventure of the Dying Doctor" pits the good doctor and Mycroft Holmes against an improbable insurance and stock fraud scheme entailing an errant comet, while Holmes watches benignly from the sidelines. Bill Crider's "Adventure of the Young British Soldier" features a grudge-driven villain intent on poisoning Watson's former orderly, a hero from their service together in the Afghan War. Sharyn McCrumb's eerie, supernatural "The Vale of the White Horse" appeals mostly to those interested in sorcery and demonic spirits, not usually the province of Holmes and Watson. Other stories bring the legendary...

From Booklist
Reviewed with Martin Schwabacher's Elephants. Gr. 4-6. Weighing 300 pounds and more than three tons respectively when they are born, elephants and whales can be intimidating, but these books, in the Animals Animals series use colorful photographs and interesting text to make their subjects seem more approachable. Each volume explores habitat, members, behavior, and mating habits, and also takes a look at the animal's future. Simple graphics and well-designed tables are used to convey more complex information--for example, details about environment and migration habits. Books in the series will appeal to animal lovers in general, as well as children focused on finding specific information about a subject. A glossary and links to print and Internet sites are appended. Other volumes are cited in the Series Roundup in...

From Booklist
Reviewed with Gloria Schlaepfer's Elephants.Gr. 5-9. Two new titles in the longstanding Animalways series offer excellent overviews of their subjects. Written in engaging language, the books begin with interesting chapters on the animals' roles in history, mythology, religion, and literature. Subsequent sections address the animals' physical characteristics, behavior, life cycles, habitats, and risks, including poachers and naturally occurring diseases--for example, anthrax in elephants. Whales covers the animals' migration patterns and unique method of communication. Both titles offer background scientific concepts, such as an explanation of why size gives whales an underwater advantage. Sharp color photos of the animals in the wild mix with archival images, helpful charts, and artists' renderings. Species...
