NOTE: Interest in Jeff's two Sherlock Holmes tales was revived in 2017, when a Blog he published about a "feud" between Sir Arthur Conan Doyle & Samuel Clemens went viral, capturing the attention of Sherlockian scholars and scions around the world! It was posted in several prominent Holmesian newsletters, including "Sherlockian E-Times" (click HERE to read it). The essay is actually an EXCERPT from the latest addition to Jeff's Book Talks menu, titled "Doyle vs. Clemens."
