Sherlock Holmes alert!

Fans of Sherlock Holmes wil be delighted to learn of Stanford University’s Discovering Sherlock Holmes project. The plan is to rerelease all of the issues of The Strand magazine (the journal that originally published the Holmes stories in the 1890’s) just as they were originally printed and illustrated. This being 2005, you can subscribe now to receive a paper OR online version. The first issue will be released January 9, 2006.
As someone whose main goal on first going to London was to visit 221B Baker Street (well, that and Covent Garden, where Eliza Doolittle met Henry Higgins), you can bet I have already signed up!
A tip o’ the deerstalker cap (and I know, I know – in the original stories deerstalkers are never mentioned) to the LiB for the tipoff!
