Brian Doyle, editor of Portland magazine and novelist, wrote on 24 July about life-changing reading.  He cites Conan Doyle and Christopher Morley.  Here's what he has to say about Morley's "Where the Blue Begins"...

It was Christopher Morley’s Where the Blue Begins, the quiet blue cloth first edition, 1922, with drawings and color plates by the inimitable Arthur Rackham. I was ill and abed, as I recall; I have the faintest memory that it was late summer, hot and windy outside, and dense and silent inside the house; and I picked up the book, and began to read, and for the first time that I remember I was in the story; I had been sucked into it in all my parts, so that after an hour or so, when my mother came to check on me, I was genuinely startled to see her, and to slowly recognize my crowded cheerful bedroom, for I had been strolling along with Mr. Gissing for quite some time, thick as thieves, chasing after that mysterious faraway most alluring blue.

The answer is anything but elementary.
A new transparency report links Rakhat Aliyev, the former son-in-law of Kazakhstan’s dictator, to a famed Baker Street address in London.

My best friends' super precocious three year old daughter spotted this picture for me on the inner back cover of her 'Ladybug Girl' book. For some strange reason she can recognize Sherlock Holmes' likeness almost anywhere now.

The meaning of "Sherlockian" can get a little muddled to those who know both groups.
"Each pigeon-hole had its label" [LAST] When the BBC series starring Benedict Cumberbatch first aired in 2010, it garnered fans very quickly, and they naturally enough called themselves Sherlockians. What was the name of th...

Words have meaning. True, they evolve over time, but if there is not an agreed upon meaning then one person could see the sky as blue, another as red and a third as hat.

 Sherlock Holmes Artists Edition ?
One of the big success stories in comics publishing has been the Artist Editions, huge books measuring around 11 inches by 17 inches reprinting the art from comics at actual size. I would love to see a Sherlock Artist Edition featuring all of the Dorr Steele's, Pagets etc that are out there . Would be a nice addition to the Baker Street Manuscript series

+Scott Monty correct! Thanks, +Scott Monty​. Sir Christopher also played Mycroft or Moriarity, if I'm not mistaken.
