    1. The author of three books on leadership, is now delighted to follow in the footsteps of the master storyteller Sir Arthur Conan Doyle by adding five totally new Sherlock Holmes adventures to the canon in his new book Sherlock Holmes The Golden Years from MX Publishing.He captures the voice and style of Doyle as Holmes and Watson find themselves unraveling mysteries in and around turn of the century London that, as Holmes puts it, appears to have taken on an unsavory European influence Meticulously researched, all of Krisco s stories read like mini historical novels Indeed Kim trekked to Avie Scotland, and climbed Ben Macdui Mountain, so he could better capture the authentic feel of the setting for The Bonnie Bag of Bones the first of Holmes s post retirement adventures.In Sherlock Holmes The Golden Years, Kim Krisco breathes new life into the beloved odd couple, shedding new light on Holmes s and Watson s protean friendship that is becoming richer and puckish with age.Kim lives in the Rocky Mountains of Colorado in a straw bale home he built himself This effort became the backdrop for his last book on coaching.I used to think I was special a dangerous way to think for someone coaching other people.Fortunately, my special ness rubbed off over a period of ten years while building a home and coaching center in the foothills of the Sangre de Cristo Mountains of Colorado The construction process is complete now, and enough of my defensive, ego based armor has sloughed off for me to see my journey and myself clearly.I share my decade long journey with you as a vehicle for gaining deeper insights into human evolution which, for me, is what coaching is about Coaches are the midwives of personal growth and transformation accelerating a natural, universal process toward higher consciousness If this is true, then it would seem to follow that a coach s skill and ability grows in proportion to their own personal growth and level of consciousness.Talking to Trees A chronicle of one coach s journey into a new coaching paradigm by Kim Krisco, La Penita Press.I now work with leaders, teams and organizations seeking a quantum leap in effectiveness My coaching center is located in Longs Canyon west of Trinidad I have published several other books including Leadership the Art of Conversation, Leadership Your Way, and Aikido leadership I m now writing a historical novel about Arthur Conan Doyle and a book of transcendental poetry For information go to kimkrisco or call him at 719 859 4302.

    Sherlock Holmes: The Golden Years Comment

    1. The description on the back of this book caused me to worry that I was in for a set of tales steeped in the supernatural, but all such fears were put to rest by the first story Eventually, all five proved to be based firmly in reality, with only a few nods at another orientation in the final tale This collection of five novellas is one of the finest sets of Sherlockian fiction I have seen The author has a good grasp of Nineteenth Century British politics and thought and each of the tales looks a [...]


    2. Kim H Krisco s five new Sherlock Holmes post retirement stories are a delight They can be read as stand alone tales but are better read in the chronologically order in which they appear.Retired Holmes and Watson are reunited to solve an initial mystery arising from myth and bones found on the Scottish hills This case eventually leads to Irene Adler and her daughter, and a story thread that continues to the last tale In fact Holmes s relationship with The Woman is examined by Krisco than Conan D [...]


    3. The idea of a Golden Years Holmes collection of stories gave me an expectation of an aging Holmes pulled into cases while grappling with diminishing capabilities This was not that story The Golden Years is five Holmes Watson adventures that take him in numerous directions connecting with a handful of folks intertwined with his past, while creating some fresh experiences for him to encounter There are times, such as in the Maestro of Mysteries story where I was captivated There were other times I [...]


    4. An excellent addition to the apocrypha, this volume features Holmes and Watson retiring from retirement Times have changed and Holmes often feels out of place in a world that is steadily hurtling towards the global conflicts that ripped apart the late Victorian world that was his natural habitat Old familiar characters are brought back in interesting, worthwhile ways and the indomitable duo extend their activities to USA and South Africa Altogether a thrilling collection of tales, shot through w [...]


    5. This is a book of five short stories written after Sherlock Holmes retired I liked it a lot It was a well written book.


    6. Age never trumps HolmesMy thanks go out to Steve and Timi at MX Publishing for my review copy of this book You guys are producing Sherlock Holmes for the multitude of Sherlockians worldwide This book contains five adventures that take place after Holmes retires to his cottage in Sussex to keep bees The author notes that the stories are stand alone, but in chronological order and somewhat connected as characters move from one story to another The Bonnie Bag of Bones Ben MacDhui lies in the Cairng [...]


    7. Few books have the power to transport you back to childhood For me, any book with Sherlock Holmes in it, does the trick I remember borrowing books from friends and reading them huddled in a corner of my bed It was a perfect accompaniment to wintry nights It still is Sherlock Holmes The Golden Years is a collection of five stories or five cases if you will after our dear Holmes has retired from active crime solving The book opens with the story The Bonnie Bag of Bones where in both Holmes and Wat [...]


    8. This book was a bit strange It s billed as five new stories, but it s not really It s 3 stories, an epilogue, and a spin off The first two were very fun If you d asked me then I d have rated the book a 4.5 The third story got a little heavy handed with the fan service and grew syrupy at the end The fourth story was mostly a waste It felt like the author was showing off how much historical research he d done and it was for very little payoff Don t read the fifth one It s included solely to get th [...]


    9. I must confess that this book was my first soiree into Sherlock Holmes, and an enjoyable one The stories are cleverly interwoven deal with than simply crime sleuthing Here the reader will find a love story that goes beyond the grave The book also explores the historical, political and cultural background of eugenics, Darwinism and suffragettes, all marching against the drumbeat of an approaching WW11.


    10. One of the better pastiches I ve read despite the teaser cover, nothing supernatural in here, which is something I really liked with good explanations for seemingly supernatural events, the author scores genuine Holmes Plus, there s nothing out of character for Watson, which is also a good achievement.With riveting plots, crisp dialogues and a good pace, a good read.



    11. Disappointing to say the least Structure of the book with the ending denouement is haphazard and the characters lack continuity with the Holmes literary legagacy.
