The Return of "The Notorious Canary-Trainer" Published in the BSJ

My article, The Return of “The Notorious Canary-Trainer”, has just been published in the Spring 2008 issue of The Baker Street Journal. It’s a rather tongue-in-cheek reflection on Conan Doyle’s Sherlock Holmes, Arthur Morrison’s Martin Hewitt, The Strand magazine, and naturally, notorious canary-training, and I’m extremely pleased that it’s appearing in this, the oldest and most prestigious journal devoted to Holmes and Watson.

I honestly think I enjoy writing about Holmes more than any other subject, and some readers of this blog may remember that The Baker Street Blog featured a Sherlock Holmes pastiche of mine last year.

Update: I’ve now made this essay available online: The Return of “The Notorious Canary Trainer”.
