Other Things in Life Than Tea is a 6-page story written by Robbie.  It is a Holmes POV first time story--a fairly classic, if overly melodramatic, example of the type.

New GSH Anthology Seeking Submissions

From their website: "In 2011, Lethe Press queered the Sherlock Holmes canon with A Study in Lavender, and now we’re putting together a new collection on the theme, A Scandal In Gomorrah."

You can see my review of the previous anthology here. This anthology will be edited by Matt Bright. The theme jumps of from the previous anthology but has a wider scope: " I’d love to see stories that transpose the time, setting or genre; gender-queering or –swapping; metafiction; stories that explore the myriad iterations and pop-culture associations of Sherlock: television/radio/cinema adaptations, animal detectives, iconography, ‘shipping’, fanfiction, imitations, art…"

The Countess of Morcar's Blue Carbuncle (The Hidden Files of Dr. John H. Watson Book 1) bu Sophia Sophia

The Countess of Morcar's Blue Carbuncle (The Hidden Files of Dr. John H. Watson Book 1) by Sophia Sophia is basically a short story that smooshes together a rushed summary of the Adventure of the Blue Carbuncle (BLUE) with a single rather lackluster sex scene. 

Sherlock-sploitation for sure, but not even an enjoyably smutty and gratuitous example of it. (I have nothing much against 'sploitation, but it should go damn-the-torpedoes full kitch.  What is the point of restrained and tasteful 'sploitation?).

Court Speaks on Public Domain Issue

So a court has finally called the Doyle estate on their crap and said all of the Sherlock Holmes characters are in the public domain.  Only the specific stories published after 1923 are still under copyright.  And if you ask me it is about bloody time.
