Amy H. Sturgis: Looking Back In Genre History
In the second section, we will consider how (and why) other SF authors over a century have “borrowed” Sherlock Holmes for their own genre writings. What is it about the Great Detective that continues to fascinate and inform creators and consumers of SF?
Part Two of the event also will be divided into two parts:
In the first, we’ll discuss the unique “sub-sub-genre” that combines the Holmesian world and the universe created by H.P. Lovecraft. Why have so many authors mixed Sherlock Holmes with the Cthulhu mythos?
In the final section, we will revisit the ways in which Sherlock Holmes has appeared in other SF media, from Doctor Who to Star Trek, including the BBC’s new critical and popular success, Sherlock.
Join award-winning genre scholar Amy H. Sturgis live as she investigates Sherlock Holmes then and now through a science fictional lens.
