After Holiday Music, I was even more excited to listen to this...and I didn't think that was even possible! While most of the information was nothing new, Professor Thomas Shipley did an adequate job presenting a short but detailed introduction to Sherlock Holmes. I have to admit he wasn't quite as easy to listen to as Greenberg and I had to rewind a bit and relisten before I got use to his style. He did talk about the prolific genre of Sherlockian fiction, even telling one of his favorite series - The Lord Darcy series. I'll have to check it out.
It was good enough that I might pick up his course Heroes and Legends: The Most Influential Characters of Literature, but it was already on my wish list from its name alone.
