In the 1880s, the Sherlock Holmes [detective] stories emerged. These TV shows like CSI, they're sort of the equivalent of the Sherlock Holmes stories. (VOANews, 04/08/05.)
Talking about great detectives, The Quotable Sherlock Holmes by Gerard Van der Leun is back again in a PDF version.
Talking about gifts and presents, read Gerard Van der Leun's post, Free to American Digest Readers: The Quotable Sherlock Holmes. You could read about my X-mas gifts on my other blogs. For more information on one of the authors (P. G. Wodehouse), please read my post, AMERICAN DINING ETIQUETTE. (EGO, XMAS GIFTS AND FROOGLE WISH LIST, 12/30/04.)
