One of my great privileges in the Sherlockian world is to be able to write book reviews for the Baker Street Babes podcast. My latest one is a bit unusual. It’s a review of an expertly-crafted collection of Sherlock Holmes-related quizzes and word puzzles.
Here’s an excerpt from my review:
It’s a great time to enter the world of Sherlock Holmes. The BBC’sSherlock series and the Guy Ritchie Holmes films have ushered in millions of new fans, a great many of whom have gone on to explore the Granada TV series and the canonical stories by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. As a result, the glossy second edition of Kathleen Kaska’s engaging quiz collection comes at a particularly apt time
Kaska’s book consists of 80 quizzes covering the Holmes stories, the author, and much more, as well as five crossword puzzles. In addition, each section contains a small introductory essay with valuable information about aspects of the canon.
