Carl L. Heifetz's curator insight, October 29, 2015 10:31 AM

I praise the two centers of Sherlockian scholarship in North America: Toronto and Minneapolis. We all a  great deal of gratitude to the hard working curators and their staff. I assume that the new three-volume anthology is available for reading. Let me promote my story in the book "The MX Book of New Sherlock Holmes Stories Part !I." The title of my story is "The Adventure of the Poison Tea Epidemic." I'm proud that I was invited to contribute, and I hope that you like my tale. 

Just a reminder, my novella "Voyage of the Blue Carbuncle is available on line. You might like the light-hearted take on Sherlock Holmes and Star Trek.

Sherlock Holmes' Creator Fought Injustice with Deduction, Too

Sherlock Holmes' Creator Fought Injustice with Deduction, Too | Sherlock Holmes and Dr Watson | Scoop.it
May 22, 1859: Arthur Conan Doyle is born in Edinburgh
Richard Crowder's insight:

To fans of Sherlock Holmes, the setup feels familiar: A wealthy spinster is bludgeoned to death in her Glasgow dining room one foggy night while her maid is out buying the evening newspaper. The murderer is apparently someone she knows, since there is no sign of forced entry. And burglary is insufficient as a motive, since only one piece from the victim’s massive jewelry collection is missing:

The Many Faces Of Sherlock Holmes

The Many Faces Of Sherlock Holmes | Sherlock Holmes and Dr Watson | Scoop.it
From silent movies to the Beeb's latest blockbuster.
Richard Crowder's insight:

 

The first actor to play the part of Sherlock Holmes in an official capacity was actually an American. William Gillette hailed from Connecticut and was already a successful stage actor when he adapted a play begun by Arthur Conan Doyle himself. Gillette donned the deerstalker, introduced a love interest and a curved pipe, and turned the play into a massive hit on both sides of the Atlantic. The curved briar pipe was necessary, it’s said, because a straight pipe obscured the actor’s mouth when he was saying his lines.
