On Sherlockian Ponderings

Yesterday going through e-mail I came across a call for submissions to a Sherlock Holmes collection of scholarly ponderings, satire, and pasticherie. I’m not much for satire, I’ve written a few pastiches in my time, and decided, on a lark, to e-mail back the editor with a slightly silly idea for a scholarly pondering, a piece of Higher Criticism of the Canon.

Four weeks. Fifteen hundred words. He liked the idea.

When I say “slightly silly,” I mean something that makes Rex Stout’s “Watson was a Woman” look positively sane.

And footnotes! It needs footnotes! I haven’t written anything with footnotes since college.

Details will be posted as they become available.
