Pilgrimage to the Sherlock Holmes Museum

Quick note, FYI: The latest Humble Bookperk Bundle from HarperCollins, featuring DRM-free, multiformat ebooks available for pay-what-you-want rates, includes works by two of my favorite authors, namely The Curse of Chalion by Lois McMaster Bujold and American Gods by Neil Gaiman. Check it out! (Thanks to Curtis.)

My new semesters begin next week at Lenoir-Rhyne University (where I'll be teaching the "Monsters and Mad Science" seminar for both undergraduate and graduate students) and Mythgard Institute (where I'll be offering the M.A.-level "Science Fiction, Part I: From Modern Beginnings to the Golden Age"), so I'm gearing up for those. In the meantime, I'm also trying to upload, label, and caption my photos from London.

Recreation of the Sitting Room in 221b Baker Street


One of the first things I did in London was make a pilgrimage to the Sherlock Holmes Museum on Baker Street. It was amazing. Here are all of my photos from the museum with full descriptions.

The original cane chair used by the artist Sidney Paget for his illustration of Sherlock Holmes in "The Greek Interpreter."


More very soon, I promise! Thanks for letting me share. :)
