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!)

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
