Sherlockian Musings and Memories
(1907-1991) is a legend in the Sherlockian world. This book, written just
shortly before Mr. Harrison's death, is not only a true classic of Sherlockian
literature, but it is truly delightful reading. Here's a sample of Mr.
Harrison's prose taken from his own introduction to Immortal Sleuth: " I have
subtitled this . . . book, ‘Sherlockian Musings and Memories.' That ‘Memories'
is, I think, not likely to call for any explanation: in eighty years, I have
had, praise Heaven!, more than my fair share of passing through truly memorable
times, and meeting many memorable people. Age alone . . . will fill the cup of
Memory to overflowing - so that of the ‘Memories' in this book, I have been able
to give but the smallest part of my huge store. . ." But that "smallest part" is
a fantastic exploration of Sherlockian history and "folklore" through which the
author conducts the reader in a most delightful manner. 211 pages, hard cover,
numerous photos and other graphics. A true classic not to be in print long.
