  • Many a crime has been inspired works of literature, so I would not be surprised. It was time someone picked up on one of the masters of crime created by Doyle as others have tried to imitate his master detective. I do not know of other incients like these related to SH but I know of similar examples: The Turner Diaries is thought to be the inspiration behind a number of violent...

  • Hello all beautiful people, I see some new faces and some old ones here. The new ones are welcomed and the old ones are glomped ... er ... hugged. Because of real life obligations I have been unable to give this groups as much time as I used to. Though I have been keeping up with many discussions here, I haven't been able to respond as my canon knowledge has become rather rusty...

The Tamil writer "Sujatha" (his pen name) has created a detective (whose name temporarily slips my mind) who also has a sidekick (who's name too I'm afraid I don't recollect). The speciality of this detective is that he has the view that the person who doesn't read PG Wodehouse and doesn't solve...

  • I feel sorry for you for having to pay for such stories. Nowadays, with the internet revolution I've come across a lot of fanfiction, which can be called nothing but crap. With ludicrous plotlines (what plotlines?) to equally ludicrous romantic pairings (yes, you read correct), these fanfic writers have twisted around the world of Sherlock Holmes. Though some *have* been good, the...

  • Most of these ovservations into Holmes' life are based upon pastiches. Precious little is said in the canon to confirm this. And I agree on your ovservations that both Holmes and Watson attended colleges. The latter because he is a doctor and the former because it is mentioned so in the canon. Yes, it *is* a thing to wonder why both Holmes and Watson were not more forthcoming with...

  • That may have been possible. But it might also have been ACD's overlooking. Perhaps he didn't dwell into much research and assumed that the practices in both the universities would be similar. Since, I'm familiar with neither Oxford nor Cambridge, could you please enlighten me with examples of the practices you mention? Manraviel Tim Symonds wrote: Holmes, even though he seems to...

  • Yes, I quite like the idea of reading a particular story together and discussing upon it. And one per month is fairly reasonable taking into account all our busy time schedules. I am in favour of this idea and would hit my canon if all others agree to this too. Manraviel Ashoke Dasgupta wrote: I propose we discuss one Holmes story every month. Let us start with 'The Three Students...
