Here, There, and Everywhere

I hope everyone is enjoying a lovely weekend!

My "Sherlock and Science Fiction" lecture yesterday and the following Q&A discussion was terrific fun and a great success, and I thank all of you who were involved. I had a fantastic time, and I'm most grateful for everyone's support!

Whew, I have several things on my plate in the next little while. Three states in three weeks!
1. I'll be an author/scholar guest at StellarCon 36.
2. I'll be presenting a talk on "Fringe's Literary Ancestors" at SONAR: The Symposium on Nerdy Academic Research.
3. I'll be a scholarly roundtable participant at the "Liberty and Responsibility in the American Anti-Slavery Movement” Colloquium.
4. I'll begin teaching my second-quarter graduate/undergraduate seminar on "Native American Myth, Film, & Fiction" at Lenoir-Rhyne University.

Here's my new niece Kaitlyn sporting one of my very first gifts to her, the oh-so-stylin' Yoda Hat, which I understand is what all the newborn Jedi are wearing this year. (Judge her by her size, you should not!)

Kaitlyn in Her Yoda Hat


Speaking of Sherlock Holmes, I have a few new book reviews of Sherlockian works up at Goodreads:
1. Teller of Tales: The Life of Arthur Conan Doyle by Daniel Stashower (1999)
2. Time for Sherlock Holmes by David Dvorkin (1983)
3. The Science of Sherlock Holmes: From Baskerville Hall to the Valley of Fear, the Real Forensics Behind the Great Detective's Greatest Cases by E.J. Wagner (2006)
4. Sherlock Holmes: The Adventure of the Innsmouth Whaler by Christian Klaver (2010)


"My oldest and dearest friend, the pastimes for us will be endless, infinite, and eternal."
- David Dvorkin, Time for Sherlock Holmes

The hat. The HAT! So, so perfect. (Yes, you need to raise them right from the start.)

Oh, I'm so glad you like it!

(Yes, you need to raise them right from the start.)

Yes indeed! *nods vigorously*

Oh, hon! The Yoda hat is adorable, although not as adorable as your niece!

And thank you for the links to your reviews. Very interesting and useful.

So excited and proud that your lecture went well! Love how your upcoming things-to-do bounce from "nerdy" to "scholarly" without skipping a beat.

And, OMG, Kaitlyn is adorable in her hat. And in general. You must be climbing the walls wanting to see her. Is your mom a knitting whirlwind right now? Will we see Kaitlyn wearing a Sherlock onesie? Inquiring minds want to know, ha ha.

Aw, thank you so much! *blushes and bounces*

I'm so glad you like Kaitlyn workin' that hat! I can't wait to see her. Mother's pretty much a rocking-chair fiend right now, loving on Kaitlyn, but I have no doubt more knitting and quilting and such will happen ASAP.

Will we see Kaitlyn wearing a Sherlock onesie? Inquiring minds want to know, ha ha.

Oh my... this needs to happen, doesn't it? Hmmm... *rubs hands together with devious planning*

Oh my, that's adorable! Your niece I mean! </p>

Congrats on the Sherlock lecture! Really sorry I couldn't be there. Hopefully there'll be the opportunity to buy it after the fact!

The SONAR acronym is pure win! And congrats on being a guest at the con. I love seeing the range of work you participate in, too.

Your niece is adorable, and that hat is just the icing on the cuteness cake!!!!
