"he was a young schoolmaster" [MUSG]
We're constantly impressed at the onion-like tendencies of Sherlockians. That's not to say that they're pungent or make you cry, but rather that like the genus Allium, when peeled, has a surprising number of layers.
So it is with Rob Nunn, a relatively recent Sherlockian who has come blazing into our sites. Rob has been a contributor here on the I Hear of Sherlock Everywhere site and has created his own blog. But his involvement with the Beacon Society and a unique Sherlock Holmes novel have propelled him into the realm of other Sherlockians as well.
Rob takes us on a journey that helps frame how he managed to conceive of Sherlock Holmes not as the master detective, but as The Criminal Mastermind of Baker Street.
