Something I missed ...

The other day was Arthur Conan Doyle's birthday. I agree with Glenn about The White Company. There's also the Lost World. Thanks to Dave Lull for jogging my memory with this link to Discovering Sherlock Holmes.

  1. Frank, thanks for mentioning Professor Challenger.

    As wonderfully entertaining as the Holmes Canon might be, it shows us only a part of Doyle and his work.

    Though many people may not recognize the name, Professor Challenger, nowadays ... chances are they have enjoyed a work of fantasy or science fiction that was inspired by "Lost World," or built upon foundations for the genre that were first laid-down in the Professor's exploits.

    And, let's not forget Brigadier Gerard!
