NOTE: Interest in Jeff's two Sherlock Holmes tales was revived in 2017, when a Blog he posted about a "feud" between Arthur Conan Doyle and Samuel Clemens captured the attention of Sherlockian fans across the nation. Jeff learned in late July that his essay on the subject, titled "War of Words," has been accepted for inclusion in the next Christmas Annual printed by the Norwegian Explorers of Minnesota, and distributed not only at their annual dinner in December, but also to those attending the Baker Street Irregulars Annual Dinner & Gaslight Gala during Sherlock Holmes Birthday weekend in NY in January.
