    The World of Sherlock Holmes, Consulting Detective. Sherlock Holmes sat for some time in silence with his head sunk forward, and his eyes bent upon the red glow of the fire. Then he lit his pipe, and leaning back in his chair he watched the blue smoke rings as they chased each other up to the ceiling.   It is soon apparent to Watson that Sherlock Holmes is indeed a character of epic proportion, who has profound knowledge of chemistry, geology, botany and a range of other significant subjects; yet knows little about literature, astronomy, philosophy, and politics. A Study in Scarlet is required reading for any Sherlock Holmes fan.
