Stanford does Sherlock again!

Great news from Stanford University! The Discovering Sherlock Holmes project is continuing for another year.

From January through April 2007, Stanford will republish a dozen of the greatest stories of the Sherlock Holmes canon, accompanied by notes, illustrations, and suggestions for further exploration. Among the tales to be revisited are "The Empty House, "Silver Blaze," "The Musgrave Ritual," "The Reigate Squires," "The Greek Interpreter," "Charles Augustus Milverton," "The Abbey Grange," "The Second Stain," "The Bruce-Partington Plans," "The Devil's Foot," "The Dying Detective," and "His Last Bow."

If you would like to receive paper facsimiles of the twelve weekly Strand Magazine releases for a small fee, you can sign up on the website. You may also download the facsimiles as PDF files from the website, free of charge. Each installment will be available on successive Fridays under the Sherlock Holmes Adventures link.


"Oh, a trusty comrade is always of use; and a chronicler still more so."
-Sherlock Holmes about Dr. Watson, from "The Man with the Twisted Lip"

It's very exciting! Last year's publications are still up on the website, FYI.

Glad you like the icon. It cracks me up, too, I must admit. :) It's by the very clever ilthit.

Happy Birthday! I won't be online tomorrow ... or for another few days again. Or maybe another week. lol I'm going home today from visiting my grandma's, so I thought I'd say it today while I still have the opportunity. :)

I hope it's the best birthday yet! :D
