Some recent tweets that I enjoyed writing. Twitter falls into the memory hole so quickly, and maybe someday I’ll want to return to these. Okay, probably not. But for a minute or two, this is what I was thinking at the time.
I really don’t know anything about Gundam, even after selling Gundam video games at EB Games, then writing about Gundam models for the past fourteen years at Diamond Comic Distributors, except that it involves giant robots. And that’s okay! I don’t need to know anything more than that. Yet, when I had to write someContinue reading “Arsene Lupin, Gentleman Gundam”
Throughout January I worked, off and on, on something of a private project, to make an ebook of Ellery Queen’s long-out-of-print anthology, The Misadventures of Sherlock Holmes.

Recently I read the first two books in a young adult series, Sherlock, Lupin & Me, which imagined Sherlock Holmes, Arsene Lupin, and Irene Adler as childhood friends. (Thoughts on the first book, The Dark Lady, here.) I enjoyed the two books, and I’m sure to enjoy the next two (which are the only booksContinue reading “Arsene Lupin, Gentleman Thief”
A few months ago I saw some posts on Twitter that featured the covers to a series of Italian young adult novels under the title of “Sherlock, Lupin, & Me,” written ostensibly by Irene Adler (actually, Alesandro Gatti), about adventures she had when she was young with Sherlock Holmes and Arsène Lupin. I thought theContinue reading “The Dark Lady”
