Here is my confession: I am endlessly fascinated by the character and adventures of Sherlock Holmes.

As someone who shares the same name initials (James M) as those of Sherlock Holmes’ most famous villain, I’m not sure whether I should be cautious or simply ecstatic.

Whether it’s the original stories, pastiche/fan fiction, films or TV adaptations, so long as they’ve got Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s characters (and London) in them, I’m sold.

This blog is dedicated to all Sherlock Holmes fans worldwide and is intended as a space in which to express our love for this literary character.

Be sure to check out my Twitter page where (albeit still in its infancy) I shall be posting images and quotes by Sherlock Holmes on a regular basis.

Welcome to A Palace for the Mind.
