"the rushing stream of life in the Strand" [ILLU]
The Strand Magazine and Sherlock Holmes are inextricably linked. It was the stories of the immortal detective, carried each month in that publication, that made it as popular as it was in the late 19th century and early 20th century. When the magazine published its last issue in 1950, it was the end of an era that spanned nearly 60 years.
In the late 1990s, The Strand was given a new life by Andrew Gulli, who determined that the world was prepared for more literature around detective fiction. Andrew sat down with us to talk about his unique beginnings with Sherlock Holmes in Greece, a television program (not the one you think) and what led him to editing an iconic mystery magazine.
