This week, I received a significant announcement (click here for the translated version) from our friends at the Société Sherlock Holmes de France: they have launched their very first Holmesian publication, called Le quinCahier. Félicitations a mes amis!

The magazine, lavishly produced in color, is free for members of the SSHF and contains all sorts of Sherlockian material, from news to music and book reviews, recaps of events to scholarship, and much, much more. And of course, it wouldn't be a SSHF publication without unique artwork by Jean-Pierre Cagnat.

The cost of a single issue is 12€ for non-European subscribers, or 30€ for four issues per year. Incidentally, 30€ is also the price of membership to the SSHF; since you get the magazine free with membership, you may as well join.

If you would like a closer look at what is being offered, here's a one-sheet PDF you can download. It contains many sample pages and a scan of what I think is a very well designed cover.

This is a very poor attempt at French, but I'd be remiss if I didn't say "Le jeu est en cours de réalisation!"

I received a copy of the QuinCahier last week. I give it my very highest recommendation.

The SSHF 'froggies' are among the most avid, scholarly, and fun Sherlockians and their publication is a must have.

Just 2 mistakes in your description:

- The QuinCahier 1, is the first issue of this series, but not their first publication ever... Since 14 years they published a ton of stuff.

- The QuinCahier 1 is 100% color, not only lavishly...

Best etc,
