Thanks for mentioning our Holmes book, even though you forgot to add my name. These books, so long ago, were my brainchildren, and Marty Greenberg made them happen. I'm glad they've not fallen into a hole.

You're absolutely right, Carol-Lynn, and I apologize for the oversight! (I tend to use copy and paste to make sure I get names spelled properly, and unfortunately, my "copy" didn't sweep across the entire editorial entry.) I've added your name to the posting.

Thanks very much for your idea and persistence in seeing them come to fruition so we can all enjoy them. The library didn't have your "Twelve Crimes of Christmas" anthology, or I would have mentioned it, too. Perhaps you can check into making these titles available as eBooks?

For those of us who enjoying reading as well as writing mystery fiction, this is a very helpful column.
