Fly-By Post of Newsiness

Here's some great news: "The Man in the High Castle, Amazon's Biggest Pilot Ever, Greenlit for a Full Series."

And here's more great news: "Lost Sherlock Holmes Story Discovered in Man's Attic." (Then again, the story's authorship is disputed. Nonetheless, this is a very interesting find!)

I really need to get around to watch the pilot of The Man in the High Castle - I've heard such good things about, and I have such a kink for AU history!

It's sooo good! And it really captures the vibe of the novel, IMHO.
