WILD ABOUT HARRY. But I do love the man from Baker Street, and I was a Sherlockian even before I discovered the magic of Houdini.
My first experience of Holmes on the page was not the Canon. In fact, I came to Conan Doyle late. The first Holmes book I ever read was Nicholas Meyer's 1974 novel The Seven Per-Cent-Solution (read: The case of the non-canonical seduction). Therefore, I've always had a thing for pastiche novels, especially those that found Holmes crossing paths with the likes of Jack The Ripper, Dracula, and, yes, even Houdini.
So I thought I'd start up this niche blog in which I share select pastiche adventures that I own or otherwise capture my attention -- "cases for which the world was not yet prepared."
Hope you enjoy.

"Somewhere in the vaults of the bank of Cox and Co., at Charing Cross, there is a travel-worn and battered tin dispatch-box with my name, John H. Watson, M.D., painted upon the lid. It is crammed with papers, nearly all of which are records of cases to illustrate the curious problems which Mr. Sherlock Holmes has at various times to examine."
