    Summary

    Who would we be, we Holmeses, if not for The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes? Mere curiosities buried in old newspapers, forgotten mentions in mouldering secret government archives and unsealed police records? Or would we be something else we never thought — were explicitly trained not — to imagine?

    Summary

    There are many things Holmes and I have never explicitly discussed, and the exact nature of his relationship begun with John Watson before I was born was one of them. Still, I can observe and deduce as well as the next detective, and in addition to theology and chemistry Oxford gave me an education in the wide reaches of human behavioural variability. I’ve long known that the bond between the old friends was forged from rare metals. Though perhaps not so rare as so-called polite society would admit, given Mrs. Summer’s ready assumption. Other than Mycroft, Mrs. Hudson, and the occasional elderly irregular, however, I’d never had opportunity to meet someone who’d known them both so long before I did, and more to the point who knew them as the partners they were then. Her certainty as to the nature of their partnership was more data than I’d received in some time.

    Summary

    Leaping within Admiral Albert Calavicci's lifetime instead of Dr. Samuel Beckett's proves to be interesting, frightening and just plain astounding at times.

    Like the one where Al leapt into the wife of Sherlock Holmes at the World's Fair in San Francisco, just before the start of World War II. And neither of them could recall why they were there - but to be fair, Sherlock was in his eighties at that point.

    And Mary was under the influence of a swiss-cheesed memory.
