This book has been around a year in the making and it's finally here! Unfortunately, I found it to be a little lacklustre. There may be several personal reasons for this that won't effect other people's opinions (that I saw it's progress from early on, that I am more a Victorian Holmes fan than BBC etc.) so please bear that in mind when reading this.

I love everyone contributions in this book, and will always selfishly cherish it and my story, "A Study In Fiction" (written under my birth name - Rachel Richardson), since it was the very first time I was published.
