'Detection is, or ought to be, an exact science'
It’s Tumblr. It’s Sherlock. Where better to share the cover of one of our latest Oxford World’s Classics?
This is a new selection of the best Sherlock Holmes stories, which sees Holmes at work from the beginning to the end of his career. There’s lots of  additional background material plus an introduction by Barry McCrea who examines the reasons for the stories’ enduring popularity and Holmes’s rich afterlife on stage, page, and screen.

Ladies and gentlemen, readers of Boumeries, today is the launch of my very own Patreon page! As many of you may know, I am now a stay-at-home mom working on comics during my daughter’s nap times, and my income has been pretty null in the last year or so. If you like what I do, please consider sparing a few bucks every month to support my work and help pay the bills — your help might even allow me to go to American cons! That would be so awesome.

So please watch the video and head to my Patreon page if you’re interested! If you can’t contribute, please reblog so that as many people as possible see this. I need all the help I can get.

Thank you so much! You guys are rad.
