A five pillow problem.
We've seen Sherlock Holmes in a lot of different situations over the years, performing brilliantly in all sorts of ways. But this morning I was considering how sometimes he just sits and thinks, and other times he just comes up with stuff on the fly, and I ...

The Harmonius Order of Flies and Bluebottles.
“All you need to form a Sherlockian society is two Sherlockians and a bottle. And in a pinch, you can dispense with one of the Sherlockians.”          -- Rob Nunn, quoting the thing people say John Bennett Shaw always said,  which is hard to find an origina...

All of Sherlock's boxes.
I have always resisted seeing Sherlock Holmes as an addict. It's what we do with our friends after all, putting knowing blinders on purposefully, to enjoy the good in them without letting the sad parts take that good away. And yet, Sherlock Holmes might not...

Minneapolis, I am not in you!
There's something really cool about reading an article from a newspaper four hundred and fifty miles away and knowing every single person mentioned, and some of them quite well. And also . . . more than a little bit sad. The Minneapolis Star Tribune  just r...

This iteration of Sherlock Peoria, four years later . . .
Four years ago this summer, I shifted Sherlockian gears. For the previous decade, I had been conglomerating Sherlockiana into a website at SherlockPeoria.net using mostly good old-fashioned HTML, a little PHP, and a thing or two otherwise. The four years pr...

All the Sherlock powers, all the time . . .
The time is World War I. An aviator known as "the Black Eagle" crashes his plane behind enemy lines on purpose to set up an espionage network. He does much good work for the war effort, and when the war is over, fakes another plane crash to go on hiatus in ...

Sorry, Vincent . . . have to disagree with you.
Well, overnight, I've lost all faith in Vincent Starrett. You remember Vince, that classic Sherlockian writer and poet who gave us " 221B ," the Sherlockian Pledge of Allegiance to many generations of Holmes fans. He penned the words: "England is England ye...

Holmes and the street con.
Man, do I love the Sherlock Holmes stories. Even after a good four decades of reading, they still pop up with little unexpected delights, as happened this evening when I was reading the latest issue of The Serpentine Muse, which arrived in the mail today. C...

The society of time.
Time lords and ladies sitting round that breakfast-table. Most of those words come from "The Adventure of the Noble Bachelor." But after doing a rampage through some Sherlockian chronology this morning while the BBC National Orchestra of Wales played "I Am ...

The difference between an unchangeable world and a changeable one.
This week, I'm getting a little nostalgic for a wonderful time in the past when all I had to rage about was a simple little CBS television show called Elementary.  It didn't really matter to the world, nobody died because of it or would die because of it. A...

A day without Sherlock Holmes.
I like to write a little something about Sherlock Holmes every day I can. It might not be the best quality stuff -- one draft brain dumps aren't winning any prizes most days. But it's good to run Holmes through the brain and see what he's up to, providing a...

Sher'punk'd.
Wait a minute . . . do you remember one of the cases that was completely cut from Billy Wilder's The Private Life of Sherlock Holmes,  where Watson and Lestrade faked an entire mystery by nailing the furniture of a room to the ceiling to keep Holmes distrac...
