For the romance side of this thread, I'd suggest you wander over to the thread titled "The Russell Holmes relationship" since I've been talking about that over there.

As for first deciding to incorporate such a character as Holmes into the stories, if I'd stopped to think about it, I'd probably not have had the temerity to continue. But by the time I realized what nerve it took, the deed was done.

C.P. Lesley (cplesley) And we are all grateful. May I note in this context that I tried to read the original ACD stories yet again after first encountering "Beekeeper's Apprentice" and STILL could not get through them. I found them so dull by comparison.....
