Hearing of Sherlock Everywhere

~Interacting With Sherlockians~ Recently, Twitter created a space called "Communities," where people can discuss their favorite topics in these spaces. We at the Baskerville Pups heard about it when the podcasters "I Here of Sherlock Everywhere" invited us to their Sherlock Holmes community. Then MX Publishing made one and we eventually followed. So now we… Continue reading Hearing of Sherlock Everywhere

As explained on The Arthur Conan Doyle Encyclopedia: In order to facilitate the study of Sherlock Holmes, the title of the 62 stories have been reduced to… Continue reading Sherlockiana Abbreviations

The Baskerville Pups

Before the end of the month, let’s aim for these goals, so we can get the game afoot-ing… so we can press on.

Recruiting Pups

The litter basket is empty! Come introduce yourselves and make yourselves at home. If you or someone you know is looking for some reading fun, take a trip to 221B Baker Street with the Baskerville Pups. Spread the word so we can reach to everyone, especially the youths who can add something fun to their summer holiday. This club can boost interactions and interest in literature and surprisingly, science. The Baskerville Pups is all about discovery, and at the end of it all, we want to help the Pups find something that would have an everlasting and positive effect on them.

Side note! Experienced Sherlockians are more than welcome to come guide the Pups as they read, learn, and play.
