Fan Phenomena: Sherlock Holmes
It’s cool to be a geek now days. The cool kids go to the comic shops, watch science fiction shows, and follow, with relentless dedication, their favourite characters assimilating them into their daily lives.
Sherlock Holmes is one of the many characters who has risen to the heights of pop-culture icon status. The character and his world are more famous than the man who created him, or so it may seem at times. Between the film reboot with Robert Downey Jr and Jude Law, BBC’s modern-day version with Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman, and CBS’s awkward step-cousin to the BBC modern-day version set in present day New York City with Johnny Lee Miller and Lucy Liu Sherlock Holmes is even more so than ever a household name (or is he?).
Fan Phenomena: Sherlock Holmes looks at various fan cultures surrounding the great detective. What you’ll find is this phenomena is nothing that WB, BBC, or CBS has started or band wagon jumped upon. Sherlock Holmes has been creating die-hard fans for well over a century!
With pieces from Tom Ue, Jonathan Cranfield, Jonathan Barnes (Big Finish:Doctor Who & Sherlock Holmes), myself (Sherlock Holmes Studies in Legacy/Sherlock Holmes & The Horror of Frankenstein), as well as interviews with Anthony Horowitz (House of Silk), Ellie Ann Soderstorm (Steampunk Holmes) and many more; this will be a welcome addition to your bookshelf!
