The Best of Sherlock Holmes

 

Sherlockian e-Journals

Edited by Randall Stock

 

Some Sherlockian periodicals have been digitally archived. These products are usually distributed on CD-ROM or DVD and are often far more convenient to use than their printed counterparts. Printed copies take up lots of physical space and can be tedious to search. In addition, there are very few people and libraries that own complete runs of these journals. Electronic archives provide access to hard-to-find back issues and can greatly simplify searching for information.
