First off, thank you so much for reading our fun blog. We're enjoying this adventure into the many worlds of Sherlock Holmes and hopefully you're having a good time too.
I'm making this quick little blog post to announce a new element we're adding to the blog. We had such a good time reading The House of Silk, that we wanted an opportunity to review more Sherlockian books not written by Arthur Conan Doyle. Now since we're already infamous for not perfectly sticking the landings to our schedule, we're not going to add these books to our sylabus.
Instead we shall be reading a Sherlock novel in our spare time and whenever we finish it, we'll email back and forth our thoughts and throw up a blog entry. Almost like bonus content. This won't get in the way of our typical weekly entries. If you follow us on Twitter, you'll know when we're close to completing one of the novels.
What shall our first book be? We've decided that it shall be one that we've always wanted to read....The Seven-Per-Cent Solution by Nicholas Meyer. This is the story where Watson is concerned about Holmes' cocaine addiction so they travel abroad to get him some help where they stumble across a mystery and the famed psychologist Sigmund Freud. It's supposed to be wonderful and the filmed adapation is also well-receieved. Look forward to that....eventually.
Are there any other non-Doyle novels you want us to add to our To-Read list? Let us know in the comment sections.
Tomorrow afternoon you can expect our entry about the 1982 BBC adaptation of The Hound of the Baskervilles starring Tom Baker where Austin will undoubtably ramble quite a bit about Doctor Who. Get excited.
