In Bed With Sherlock Holmes

In Bed with Sherlock Holmes: Sexual Elements in Arthur Conan Doyle's Stories of the Great Detective -- by Christopher Redmond

In Bed with Sherlock Holmes is a fun, rather fussy, consideration of all fo the sexual implications--imagined and otherwise--of the Sherlock Holmes stories. There are several pages on the possibility of Holmes and or Watson being gay, and several more on homosexuality in general as represent (or implied) by Conan Doyles stories. Although the coverage is not extensive it is fair, well argued and includes a number of valuable citations to other, lesser known, works.

Shown left is a Somon & Pierre hardback edition released in 1984. This edition is 207 pages and includes some Sidney Paget illustrations.

In Bed with Sherlock Holmes can be purchased from: Amazon
