A rare Sherlockianly satiated state.
There have been moments, in writing a Sherlockian blog, when no topics would come to mind. And there have been times when so much other Sherlockian writing is going on that the blog gets a back seat and nothing gets written for a while. This week, however, ...

Those great Sherlockian friendships
This weekend, "Holmes in the Heartland" brought a curious mix of pleasure and regret when it came to my interactions with other Sherlockians. But it demonstrated something to me that I also think was rather illuminating. The pleasure: Getting to see some lo...

A first time for everything
Tomorrow, the first-ever "Holmes in the Heartland" Sherlockian convocation begins in St. Louis. There's always something memorable about such events, whether they go on for years, or stand alone as a one-off, because the first time someone puts one of these...

That bare space on the wall

Ugly cake
Spend much time as a character of the internet and you learn one important rule, unless your soul is so dark and uncaring that you're in the sociopathy ballpark, and that rule is this: Try to stay on things you're positive about. But with this morning's rev...
