A Case of Correspondence, Part 5

A series of communications (employing means as varied as re-used post cards and the agony columns of the Times) has come to light between Mary Russell and Other Important People, which will be revealed during the Twenty Weeks of Buzz. It follows the 1992 (not a typo!) tale published last year as MyStory (or, The Case of the Ravening Sherlockians.) The current saga posts in its legible version Wednesdays on Russell’s MySpace blog, then as the original documents Fridays (or occasionally Thursdays) here on Mutterings.

Many of the messages seem to have been delivered by messenger service or in envelopes since lost—unfortunate for the sake of our research, but perhaps understandable when one considers the momentous gravity of matters at stake.

(I should mention that the full significance of the story will not become clear until one has read The God of the Hive, available in April–although members of the Virtual Book Club are debating it nonetheless…)

    I very much like the new graphics on your site. The “Mission Style” colors and graphics are very appealing. Well done.

    As bee herders, beer fans, and Russell followers, my wife and I have collected all of the LRK-Russell books so far and very much look forward to acquiring the next one. Keep up the great work and let us know when your in Texas, we would love to buy you a pint.

    It is comforting to know Billy, and all his descendants, are around and helping Russell and Holmes. Love Billy’s last name, Mudd, seems just perfect somehow.
