What we're about

The Transfixed Correspondence of Phoenix is afoot! From die-hard admirers to new fans of The Great Detective, to devotees of British mysteries and those who pine for the Late Victorian and Edwardian Eras - all are welcome to lift a glass and share your thoughts on all things Sherlock. We'll discuss the original Conan Doyle writings (the Canon), dip into Sherlockian scholarship and consider Sherlock's many incarnations in radio, TV, movies and the pastiches (stories and novels created by other writers) and how each generation re-invents him. We'll wrestle with classic questions (was Sherlock really a misogynist?) and debate broader topics such Sherlock as a dysfunctional genius, Gothic influences, the presence of British colonialism in the Canon, etc. And we aren't forgetting the supporting cast of Dr. John Watson, Mrs. Hudson and Mycroft, clients, villains, the police and Scotland Yard. "Come at once if convenient. If inconvenient, come all the same."
