“the fruit of my leisured ease, the magnum opus” [LAST]
What happens when Sherlock Holmes faces off against forces of the supernatural? Well...nothing. At least nothing in the Canon.
But unleash the creative minds of Brad Keefauver, BSI ("Winwood Reade") and Rob Nunn, BSI ("Elementary") and 17 creative Sherlockian authors and you've got The Monstrum Opus of Sherlock Holmes: A Compendium of Horrors Dr. Watson Dared Not Tell. We've been horror-ing for the last two episodes. Hmm.
The duo join IHOSE to talk about their influences and what they hoped for in initiating this compendium. We even hear from Burt, who contributed one of the chapters himself.
A copy of this book awaits for the winner of the next Canonical Couplet quiz. Simply identify the Sherlock Holmes story based on two lines of poetry; if your answer is chosen from among the correct entries, you'll win.
