The new year is in! We solved many cases together last year. This year we would like to add some new features and announce some updates.
The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes
For the Blue Carbuncle reading challenge, we finished the first seven books in this short story collection. We plan on continuing the series until “a cold morning of the early spring,” as Watson would describe it in COPP. That makes our deadline the last day in March. We will continue to read the Canon onwards.
To engage in reading the Canon together, we highly recommend joining us on our organized Goodreads forum. We like it because all members can keep a track of their reading progress, and leave comments on the page where they left off. Goodreads is old fashioned, but neat, and we do hope you can join us, even if it’s just to say, “hello.”
The stories include:
The Baskerville Pups's currently-reading book montage
Welcome to the Baskerville Pups— an online forum for novices in Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s Sherlock Holmes. The canon of fifty-six short stories and four novels is quite a mountain to climb; so, becoming a fluent Sherlockian could take some time. We welcome all backgrounds, young and old, to group together here and on our forums to delve into the Sherlock Holmes universe, taking it one book at a time. Our community stretches from WordPress, Goodreads and Medium. We will read a book a month. Before starting the book reads, the kick-starting month shall start with an introduction to Sir Arthur Conan Doyle and Sherlock Holmes' background. The monthly themes will be introduced and discussed on this WordPress platform, on a post. The Pups will come together to plan the activities and group research. The discussions that we decided on WordPress will then be created on our Goodreads book-club here, since the forum formats may be better organized. By the end of the month, our editor (and Pups if they choose to write) will make a summarizing article (or more) on Medium, based on the monthly theme.

The Memoirs of a Sherlockian
This year, we would like to start an event called The Memoirs of Sherlockian. Simply, we are giving the Sherlockian community a place to shine on our Medium publication and website. Share your Sherlockian endeavors with us, by fulling out our form (below). We then use your answers to create an article about you and your work. Here’s an example of what the product looks like:
This is a great way to discuss what Sherlock Holmes means to you. We look forward to sharing your stories with the world. Please check out our form to start:
It’s always a pleasure working with the Sherlockian community. Thank you for being an active participant. The Baskerville Pups continues to investigate ways to celebrate Sherlock Holmes, Jeremy Brett, and Sir AC Doyle, so stay tuned. The game is afoot!
