Sherlock and Science Fiction

To say I'm excited about this announcement is quite the understatement.

It seemed only fitting to post this on Sherlock Holmes's birthday!

The Hugo Award-winning StarShipSofa presents...

A Live Video Lecture by Dr. Amy H. Sturgis

What does the world’s only consulting detective have to do with science fiction? What was the relationship of his creator, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, to the genre? Why have so many science fiction authors since Doyle found ways to incorporate Holmes into their works? What is the unique history between Holmes’s world and H.P. Lovecraft’s? In what ways has Holmes been recreated and reimagined via science fiction over the years? What is it about Holmes that makes him so at home – and popular! – in the 21st century?

Join award-winning genre scholar Amy H. Sturgis live as she investigates Sherlock Holmes then and now through a science fictional lens. A live Q&A will follow the lecture.
