In relating the details of the New Adventures of Sherlock Holmes as released on CD and their orginal broadcasts on American radio, it is worth noting that amongst those written by Denis Green and Anthony Boucher, several of these broadcasts have been written up as stories and these stories can be found in two volumes.
The Lost Adventures of Sherlock Holmes, by Ken Greewald, includes the following stories. Greenwald mentions on the flyleaf that each story is based on an incident in one of my original stories and I have appended these to each title as the usual abbreviation. I have also given the Volume number if the story appears in the CD collection and the date of the orginal radio broadcast.
- The Adventure of the Second Generation [SCAN, 17th December 1945, V2]
- The April Fool’s Adventure [STUD, 1st April 1946, V1]
- The Case of the Amateur Medicants [FIVE, 2nd April 1945, V1]

The Forgotten Adventures of Sherlock Holmes, by H Paul Jeffers, includes the following stories.
Again I have the Volume number if the story appears in the CD collection (only the first two in this case) and the date of the orginal radio broadcast.
Where there is a link to the original stories I have mentioned these.
- In Flanders Fields [14th May 1945, V2]
- The Paradol Chamber [FIVE, 21st May 1945,V1]
- The Accidental Murderess [26th November 1945]
- The Adventure of the Blarney Stone [18th March 1946]
- The Book of Tobit [26th March 1945]
- The Haunting of Sherlock Holmes [20th May 1946]
- The Adventure of the Stuttering Ghost [12th October 1946]
- The Clue of the Hungry Cat [26th October 1946]
- The Singular Affair of the Dying Schoolboys [9th November 1946]
- The Adventure of the Sally Martin [23rd November 1946]
- The Adventure of the Grand Old Man [21st December 1946]
- The Darlington Substitution [SCAN, 4th January 1947]
- The Adventure of Maltree Abbey [31st May 1947]
Both of the books are out of print but there are second-hand copies available at reasonable prices.
Most of these broadcasts are available from the Sherlock Holmes Adventures Podcast and elsewhere on the Internet.
It is interesting to compare these written stories with their radio counterparts. The authors of these collections have done an excellent job, particulary Jeffers, in maintaining the style of my original stories.
