Where are all the young Sherlockians?

Camper Jim Zych (rhymes with bike) wonders how young, electronically with-it types will connect with Sherlock Holmes. Not necessarily by picking up a book and reading, as many of us have done. See his Trifling Monograph in the sidebar on the right.

Note:  If you are in England or a similar place, you may use the term Holmesian, pronounced Holm-EE-sian instead of the American term above.  In our view, both are equally clumsy.  We have not thought of a better term, however, and even if we did, we probably do not have whatever it would take to get it into general use.  Proposals welcome.  Use “Comment” link lower right.
