An update to today's earlier post: I visited the "live" site containing what's called a chapbook of "A Scandal in Bohemia" and took a look at the amazing images. You can see them below in a slideshow. All I can say is WOW. This is a unique way of looking at one of the 60 stories and a very enjoyable one at that.

On behalf of Goode Press, I would like to thank the blogspot for the slideshow depicting the colourized Paget illustrations from www.sidneypaget.com. Check out the (somewhat smaller) illustrations, in context, at sidneypaget.com.

I also would like to thank the Sherlock Holmes Society of France for being the first to make a donation toward the continuation of The Paget Project. Happy Birthday, Sid...and Viva la France!

Speaking of Sidney Paget, I received the following email from a gentleman in Wisconsin regarding the First Annual Paget Golf Tournament:

"A twisted knee ... soggy fairways ... lots of mud ... gale force winds ... and a good time had by all!

I explained Sid's birthday and all to Nick, and we proceeded with the match ... me playing for Sidney, and he playing for Conan Doyle. Throughout, I would address him as Sir Arthur or just Doyle.

I (Sidney) got off to a great start leading by as many as 5 holes on the front nine, and Nick (Doyle) made a great comeback on the back nine.

Aside from all the mediocre shots, there were the handful of great shots. And that's what golf is all about for us average folk.

It was a fitting end as Sid's "stand-in" held on to win the match by one hole. So there we have it for the record books."

I'll second "Sidney Paget's" observation that the lovely coloured illustrations in the Goode Press cyber-chapbook "A Scandal in Bohemia" are best experienced in context - where you'll also find fanscinating quirky annotations, and appropriate sound recordings, both dialogue and music. Enjoy the slide-show here, but do visit the chapbook at www.sidneypaget.com!

Ditto what Roger wrote! I can't say enough about the site - it really has to be experienced firsthand.
