More scholarly and humorous Sherlockian writings.

Canonical Cornertones
Foundational Books of a Sherlockian Library

Edited by Peter Eckrich and Rob Nunn

Just as 221B had 17 steps to reach Sherlock Holmes' flat, here you will find 17 books that we consider steps to building a Sherlockian collection. Between these covers you will find impassioned recommendations from writers on both sides of the pond on important and interesting books to read. Each essay has its own unique voice from the varied backgrounds of the contributors. This volume will introduce newer Sherlockians to classic works, and will remind seasoned devotées of notable titles to revisit and perhaps reappraise.

"Canonical Cornerstones isn’t just fun to read: If you’re new to the "Writings about the Writings," it will also save you a lot of time... This wide-ranging anthology merely lays down the cement footer upon which an entire library can be built."
                     — Michael Dirda

125 pp., soft cover, $24.95
