Yesterday I was moderated an Eastercon panel on Sherlock Holmes in Science Fiction and Fantasy. The panellists were fabulous: Fran Dowd, D.C., Nik Vincent and Aliette de Bodard. The conversation was fun, informative and enaging; thanks everyone.
With such knowledgable panelists, lots of properties were mentioned. I hope that I’ve captured all of the, but if I haven’t, please let me know!
