Did you know that Neil Gaiman wrote a short story that combined Sherlock Holmes and Lovecraft? It's called a Study In Emerald. He read it aloud the last time he was in D.C.

I still haven't gotten a chance to see the new Bond film. As soon as final projects are turned in, I'm there.

The characters and stories are often better served by the related things they inspire rather than by the attempts to take them directly from book to screen. For example, Holmes is a highly obvious inspiration for Hugh Laurie's Dr. Gregory House, a pill-popping, mystery-solving misanthrope.


I just read Gaiman's other Lovecraft story. Both it and "A Study in Emerald" are available online, with the latter in a very cool retro format.


Thanks for the links.

I recently got into a long and interesting Gaiman v. Alan Moore discussion.  I'm a big Gaiman fan - at least as far as The Sandman goes.  I'll have to take another look at his prose. 

My fav. Gaiman story is "Four Septembers and a January," from The Sandman, featuring Mark Twain and His Imperial Majesty of the United States, Emperor Norton I.
