Welcome! Like the book of the same name, this blog is an eclectic collection of Sherlockian scribblings based on more than a half-century of reading Sherlock Holmes. Please add your own thoughts. You can also follow me on Twitter @DanAndriacco and on my Facebook fan page at Dan Andriacco Mysteries. You might also be interested in my Amazon Author Page. My books are also available at Barnes & Noble and in all main electronic formats including Kindle, Nook, Kobo and iBooks for the iPad.

You Can't Beat a Book
Much of the current Sherlockian excitement is being generated by movies and TV shows. As I noted on a Bouchercon panel recently, they are also bringing readers back to the source material. New generations are discovering the Canon, which is glorious.
Personally, I prefer books. I enjoy "BBC Sherlock," but I don't have the passion for it that some enthusiasts do. I save that for the printed word.
Some time ago I introduced our grandchildren to Disney's The Great Mouse Detective. I know of at least one Baker Street Babe who swoons at the mere mention of the title. It is, indeed, a wonderful movie. But I think the kids are about ready for the books.
