I am henceforth narrowing my blogging focus because of my diminished energies and my shortened attention span, and as part of my more narrow plan for blogging, I will be reading and discussing (almost exclusively) Arthur Conan Doyle's Sherlock Holmes novels and stories. I will not be "reviewing" the Holmes novels and stories, at least not in a conventional sense, but I hope instead to focus on some often overlooked details, some obscure nooks and crannies in the "consulting detective's" fictional world, and perhaps that kind of more specific attention will make for some interesting postings and discussions. So, even with my abilities fading and my Swiss-cheese brain softening but with a never say die attitude, I will somehow press forward into Victorian England, 221B Baker Street, and all sorts of hidden alleyways and country lanes as I follow along with Sherlock Holmes and Dr. John Watson as they pursue their adventures. I hope you will be able to join me. We begin, of course, at the beginning: A Study in Scarlet. The game is afoot!
