    Orson Welles, born in 1915 in Kenosha, Wisconsin, emerged as a multifaceted force in the realms of radio and cinema. His early foray into the arts began in his teenage years, and by 1938, he achieved nationwide recognition for his radio adaptation of H.G. Wells' "The War of the Worlds." This broadcast, presented as a series of news bulletins about a Martian invasion, caused widespread panic and showcased Welles' ability to captivate audiences through innovative storytelling. 
     
    Welles' transition to film was marked by the groundbreaking "Citizen Kane" in 1941. In this masterpiece, he played a pivotal role as co-writer, director, producer, and actor. Although it faced challenges initially, "Citizen Kane" has since garnered acclaim for its narrative innovation and technical achievements. This film not only solidified Welles' position in cinema but also left an indelible mark on the history of filmmaking. 
     
    Despite early successes, Welles encountered difficulties in Hollywood, struggling to secure funding and facing interference with some of his projects. His subsequent films, such as "The Magnificent Ambersons" (1942), "Touch of Evil" (1958), and "Chimes at Midnight" (1965), showcased his creative prowess but also reflected the challenges he faced in the industry. 
     
    Welles' contributions extended beyond filmmaking; he excelled as an actor, featuring prominently in films like "The Third Man" (1949) and "Compulsion" (1959). His performances, coupled with his distinctive voice, added layers to his artistic legacy. 
     
    As he navigated the complexities of the film industry, Welles remained active, taking on diverse roles in projects like "The Trial" (1962) and "A Man for All Seasons" (1966). His resilience and willingness to challenge conventional norms continued to define his career.

    After decades of bouncing between hope and despair, Evangelical, Baptist-raised Julie Rodgers found herself making a powerful public statement that her former self would have never said: "I support same-sex marriage in the church."When Rodgers came out to her family as a junior in high school, she still believed that God would sanctify her and eventually make her straight. Wanting so intensely to be good, she spent her adolescent and early adult years with an ex-gay ministry, praying for liberation from her homosexuality. In Outlove Rodgers details her deeply personal journey from a life of self-denial in the name of faith to her role in leading the take-down of Exodus International, the largest ex-gay organization in the world, to her marriage to a woman at the Washington National Cathedral. We see the larger story of why many have left conservative religious structures in order to claim their truest identity.Outlove is about love and losses, political and religious power-plays, and the cost to those who sought to stay in a faith community that wouldn't accept them. Shedding light on the debate between Evangelical Christians and the LGBTQ community—a battle that continues to rage on in the national news and in courtrooms across the country—this book ultimately casts a hopeful vision for how the church can heal.

In From Holmes to Sherlock, Swedish author and Baker Street Irregular Mattias Boström recreates the full story behind the legend for the first time.
