I Believe in Sherlock Holmes: Sherlockian Fandom Then & Now

I came across this article today:  I Believe in Sherlock Holmes: Sherlockian Fandom Then & Now

If you have any interest in the Sherlock fandom, fandoms in general, cultural studies, or are a living, breathing, sentient being, I recommend reading it. Seriously. This author is doing what I wish I had the ability to do (but am lacking the finesse and training). It's well-written, it's interesting, it brilliantly looks at fandoms as something more than just a goofy cultural quirk, and it makes me feel a hell of a lot less alone on my weird little iceberg of academically studying things people don't take very seriously.

So yeah. Read it. Trust me; it's worth it.

If I told you Martin Freeman wanted you to read it, would you do it? Okay, Martin Freeman wants you to read it.*
