Adrian Braddy has published the first issue of his new Sherlock Holmes Magazine, which covers the Master in all his incarnations.
It’s a 68-page, glossy, full-color periodical but not a commercial venture: It’s written by Holmes fans for Holmes fans. The contents of the first issue:
- On set: Enola Holmes and The Irregulars
- Elementary, my dear Alexa
- A study in tartan
- The Spanish Secret Files
- When Holmes was banned
- Watson! We have a problem
- Defending Nigel Bruce
- Bruising encounters
- Moriarty reimagined
- 10 years of BBC Sherlock
- The story of A Study in Scarlet
- The Private Life of Sherlock Holmes
- Live theatre in lockdown
Also included are some regular features, including a Holmesian crossword and comic strip.
Subscriptions are not yet available, but you can order the first issue, which costs £11.60 (a little over $15) for those outside the UK and Europe. If you’re interested, order soon, because supplies are limited.
A note from the editor:
Please be aware, before you take the plunge and purchase a copy, that this is NOT a commercial venture from a big publishing house. Hopefully Sherlock Holmes Magazine would not look out of place on any newsstand or in any bookstore, but it is important to realise that it is not a professional publication. It is a VERY small operation. There is no team of staff, no customer services department, no subscriptions office—just me, with some assistance from my wife. I am a former magazine journalist but this is my unpaid hobby, not my full-time job. Please be patient as we’ll struggle to match the level of service you would receive from a well-resourced publishing house. For instance, all work on the magazine is carried out outside of working hours. We will, however, do our very best.Adrian Braddy
