OMG....this thread has brought back memories of hassling my family members for a ride down to Long Beach California. There was a bookstore there called Sherlock's Home. It was made up to look like a room in a house, filled with mystery books. Between that and the large SF store some miles down the street that carried Doctor Who as well as Star Trek novelizations.....It was like visiting heaven for the day.
Recall reading the Dracula and Dr. Jeckyll ones. Seven Percent Solution, naturally.
Then family found religion and at the same time I got a job....
Never thought I'd say I missed the period where I was unemployed, but there were some good (book) times back then.
Is there a list of all non-canonical Sherlock Holmes novels published in English?
