The Speckled Band is one of 56 Sherlock Holmes short stories written by Scottish author Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. The story first appeared in The Strand Magazine in 1892 with illustrations by Sidney Paget. Doyle agreed with Holmes fans that The Speckled Band was his best Sherlock Holmes story. The narrative moves along at a rapid pace, with Holmes making his many witty and spot-on points based on evidence that only Holmes could deduce. Rationalists love this story because Holmes admits he was on the wrong track about the situation but allowed new facts to guide him in a new direction. Doyle was a doctor himself and much like Dr. Watson in many ways. Holmes was modeled after an associate of Doyle’s whom he had great admiration for. Doyle has fun with the closed room mystery that isn’t so closed! This is the Holmes story to start with. As with all Simply short stories, you should enjoy the ideas put forth in the introduction and afterword: things to think about, or write about if you are a student. A brief biography appears in all of our Arthur Conan Doyle audiobooks. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Deaver Brown. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/smag/000122/bk_smag_000122_sample.mp3.

Sometimes childish, sometimes rude, always clever and always very, very funny, this book has delighted most, and outraged a few, Tolkien fans in the US for more than 40 years. Pulling in references to popular culture and fantasy literature as a whole, this is a killingly effective parody of The Lord of the Rings. From the dreary Goddamn (Gollum) to the feckless Arrowroot (Aragorn), the bungling Goodgulf (Gandalf) to the timid, mean-minded boggies Frito (Frodo) and Dildo (Bilbo), no character is safe. Fleeing the Nozdrul, bored by acid-casualty Tim Benzedrine and harassed throughout by the minions of Sorhed, the fellowship move through a Middle Earth like no other. Short, sharp and very much to the point, even Tolkien would be hard-pressed to suppress a giggle at Bored of the Rings. Read by Rupert Degas. Rupert Degas has narrated over 100 audiobooks.
