There seems to be some confusion on the Sherlock Holmes books I’ve been talking about since, oh, the dawn of time.
1) I am still the lead on this project. Rumors that I have left the project are incorrect.
2) We have a new publisher for the project. At this time, we are attempting to nail down due dates in anticipation of publication.
3) It is meant to be two volumes: Volume 1 will deal with modern interpretations of Holmes in media, possibly 2000-present. This volume I will be editing with Melissa Beattie. Volume 2 will deal with 1900-2000 (Yes, I realize 14 years versus 100 is a bit unfair, but, well, there you have it.
4) Some essays have already been solicited. I have spoken to several people about due dates at Chicago Tardis, and with several people about other parties they know who may want to get in on the action. We are also querrying several individuals for interviews.
5) At some point in the near future we will be posting criteria for pitches or submissions. In the meantime, if you are a Sherlock Holmes aficionado, have feels about various movie or TV incarnations, and want to pitch an essay, or discuss anything with me, Tara or Melissa, feel free to contact us via firstname.lastname@example.org. The mail remains on the site so Tara and Melissa can check it, and it forwards to my own e-mail account so SOMEONE will get back to you in a timely manner.
So, there’s the skinny. There are other details that I will be getting into later, such as some of the movies/tv/characters/stories that are already spoken for, and our exact criteria (which mostly involves being irreverent and fun while still being informative)
Hope I have cleared things up and put a rest to some of the rumor-mill business going around.

We have experienced 15 deaths in my library this semester. Three victims were decapitated. The bodies of two other victims were never found. Others were abused and left for dead. My library is facing a crisis. Staplercide—the murder of library staplers—is at an all-time high.
