Never feel shame about sharing cool news and links!

Have I ever seen that one. ^_^  It turns out that apparently Gatiss CAN’T STOP TALKING about Private Life of Sherlock Holmes. 😀  He manages to slip a mention of it into at least one interview every year!

It is such an awesome thing about the Sherlock Holmes fandom: we’re so lucky to have this enormous body of work, literature, and scholarship to draw on.  It makes Sherlock Holmes its own self-contained body of literature, and look how rich the results are!  It’s a neverending source of bemusement to me that Sherlock Holmes fanfic of any stripe is belittled or ridiculed, because what else would you call the entire 100-year tradition surrounding the original stories?  ’Pastiche’ is just a word for fanfiction that’s been professionally published.
