Now we know how Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson really felt about each other.
British e-publisher Clandestine Classics is releasing sexed-up editions of Sherlock Holmes, Pride and Prejudice and other classics, with erotic passages woven into the traditional texts. That means Mr. Darcy “buried inside the depths” of Elizabeth Bennet in Pride and Prejudice and Dr. Watson declaring his “joy of knowing other men.”
Clandestine managing director Claire Siemaszkiewicz says she has always been drawn to “the underlying sexual tension” in older novels. The new editions were started before the Fifty Shades of Grey phenomenon, but the release date was moved up to July 30 in hopes of attracting fans of E.L. James’ erotic trilogy.
Tempest in a teapot
The charity co-founded by Greg Mortenson said Thursday it has added seven board members, an expansion that is part of a legal settlement over accusations the Three Cups of Tea author mismanaged the organization that builds schools in Afghanistan and Pakistan.
The new Central Asia Institute board of directors includes academics, people with business and finance backgrounds, philanthropists and an attorney who are familiar with the region where the institute works. They participated in their first meetings in San Francisco last week after being selected from dozens of people who had submitted letters of interest.
