Yeah, you might be wondering if I’m joking when I say the Conan Doyle love-triangle-werewolf story exists. I’m not. I couldn’t make up that kind of thing even if I tried. I’m not sure how well known the story is, but I’m pretty sure it’s not on the immediate radar. Heck, even Wikipedia didn’t know this story existed, so that must be saying something.
But I assure you, it does in fact exist. And it's a story probably every Sherlock Holmes fan should be aware of, since the characters act a lot like precursors to the famous Holmes & Watson pair. As I read through it, I’ll provide some commentary (both analytical and silly) for your amusement and possibly for your thought-provoking (probably more the former than the latter). I’d generally recommend you read the story first if you want to avoid spoilers, cause heck, I’m gonna spoil everything so take your warning. You can read "John Barrington Cowles" here.
