The Alpha Inn Book Club gathers virtually each month to discuss a different Sherlock Holmes pastiche. We define pastiche as broadly as possible, including not only stories written in Watson’s style, but also any books featuring The Master (or a character clearly recognizable as him). We read both old and new stories in any genre (except porn).
Meetings are held on Zoom on the last Friday of the month at 6:30 p.m. Pacific Time, and all with an interest are welcome to join us. For further info, get in touch via this website or email the Gazetteer directly at firstname.lastname@example.org.
