Tor.com very much enjoys the adventures of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s famous detective. In fact, Sherlock Holmes is probably one of our more beloved “related subjects.” Maybe it’s the way that Holmes uses science in an often fictional and sometimes fantastic manner. Maybe it’s because he’s a snappy dresser. Whatever the case, we love him and we hope you do, too, because we’re going Holmes for the holidays.
Starting on Thursday, December 22, we’ll be offering up original Holmesian articles about Holmes’s greatest “ah-ha!” moments, his most diabolic foes besides Moriarty, the influences he’s had on characters in SF, the various pastiches from other authors, his appearances in comic books, the nature of his fellow Watson and more holiday Holmes-treats, including a special book sweepstakes.
We’re also talking about Holmes today, though, as we take a look at the latest Guy Ritchie/Robert Downey Jr./Jude Law Baker Street caper: Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows.
