Any Sherlockians Out There?
In case there are any Sherlock Holmes fans in the Lizard crew, a Kickstarter that’s about to close, but may be of interest:
The funds are going to a worthy cause, the preservation of Arthur Conan Doyle’s home Undershaw. The house itself will be used for a school, with access for Holmes’ and Doyle’s legion of fans. They’ve passed their Kickstarter goal, so the project is really going to fly.
The fundraiser is a three-volume compilation of Holmes’ stories, 63 new stories by 63 authors, set within the timeframe of the original stories and using the original characters. Within the collection the stories are arranged chronologically.
Must confess to a personal interest, since I know one of the authors in Volume 1 — C.H. Dye, who’s been writing Holmesian fanfic since junior high school and never thought to actually get published. (Can give you the fan nom-de-plume if anyone else plays in that sandbox and wants to know.)
