If you like to read about Sherlock Holmes (and I do), check out this web site. You should be able to read most of the books and stories written by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, including his Holmes and Professor Challenger series.
I was excited recently when I was watching Jeremy Brett's version of Sherlock Holmes, since Sherlock's brother, Mycroft, was going to appear. I recognized the Mycroft actor, Charles Gray, as the same guy who played Blofeld on the James Bond movie You Only Live Twice.
It turns out that Mycroft was featured in two of Brett's Holmes shows, especially in The Mazarin Stone. Brett died the next year, 1995, at age 61, and Gray died in 2000, at age 71.
The Holmes/Brett shows were better, by the way, when Gray/Mycroft was in them.
