Format: Paperback
As there is no content description given for this book, here's the blurb from the back cover:
"The critically-acclaimed BBC television series 'Sherlock' (2010-) re-envisions Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's detective for the digital age, joining participants in the active traditions of Sherlockians/Holmesians and fans from other communities, including science fiction, media, and anime. This collection explores the cultural intersections and fan traditions that converge in 'Sherlock' and its fandoms. Essays focus on the industrial and cultural contexts of 'Sherlock's' critical and popular reception. The volume's multiple perspectives examine Sherlock Holmes as an international transmedia figure with continued cultural impact, offering insight into not only the BBC series itself, but also into its literary source, and with it, the international resonance of the Victorian detective and his sidekick.

Similar to Lynnette Porter's excellent book 'Benedict Cumberbatch: In Transition', 'Sherlock and Transmedia Fandom' is not a quick read aimed at Sherlock fan girls and boys. This collection of essays is a serious piece of work, written in the style of scientific papers or (albeit individually brief) thesis. Content and vocabulary are mentally demanding, so don't expect this to be lunchtime or a-couple-of-pages-before-bedtime reading.

Format: Paperback
"`Sherlock' and Transmedia Fandom: Essays on the BBC Series" edited by Louisa Ellen Stein and Kristina Busse isn't exactly a snip at $40.00, but there's lots of interest here. The contributors, mostly but not all female, compare the characters and milieu of "Sherlock" with those created by Conan Doyle, and examine the relationship between what you might call the Holmesian or Sherlockian establishment and the suddenly very significant devotees who happily call themselves fans - a term that doesn't spring naturally to the lips of many older admirers of the great detective. (It's firmly established among science fiction enthusiasts, though, and there's a long history of shared interest there.) Other essays cover Sherlock's place in the tradition of television adaptations, international interpretation of the series, and a good deal more.
