The Life and Times of Sherlock Holmes

The Life and Times of Sherlock Holmes is the fourth collection of essays on the England of Sherlock Holmes by Dr. Liese Sherwood-Fabre. Released 6th Dec 2022, it's 196 pages and is available in paperback and ebook formats. 

The author is erudite and has a prodigious knowledge of the canonical works of A.C. Doyle. All of these (quite excellent) essays are very much in the manner of the papers delivered and recorded in the newsletters and dinners of the various Holmes-adjacent fandoms. All of the essays are meticulously annotated with copious notes and links for further reading. 

Despite being a rigorous and serious collection of essays, they're perfectly accessible for layman readers and will provide many hours of further learning and research.

This volume is part of a series of essay collections and not a part of the author's fictional Holmes series (which is also quite good and comes highly recommended). 

Four and a half stars. 

Disclosure: I received an ARC at no cost from the author/publisher for review purposes.
