Phoenix Sherlockians: Discuss "The Dancing Men"
Chompie's Deli, Wednesday, August 3 at 6:30pm
Please join The Transfixed Correspondence of Phoenix as we discuss Arthur Conan Doyle's "The Adventure of the Dancing Men." DANC is beloved by many for the code at the center of the mystery and because it opens with one of those deduction set pieces that are just so damn Holmesian. Other elements once again employed: a South African reference, a former lover reappearing, an American connection and Holmes, we're sorry to say, allowing harm to come to his client.

We do, however, get plenty of action as the mystery unfolds, unlike, say, "The Boscombe Valley Mystery" where the deed has been done and we're treated to seemingly endless exposition, newspaper accounts and coroner's reports.

There is usually street parking at meters available, or check http://en.parkopedia.com/parking/tempe/ which shows ASU's Lot 55 to the West of Chompie's; the lot is listed as free after 5:30.

The Transfixed Correspondence of Phoenix is afoot! From die-hard admirers to new fans of The Great Detective, to devotees of British mysteries and those who pine for the Late Victorian and Edwardian Eras - all are welcome to lift a glass and share your thoughts on all things Sherlock. We'll discuss the original Conan Doyle writings (the Canon), dip into Sherlockian scholarship and consider Sherlock's many incarnations in radio, TV, movies and the pastiches (stories and novels created by other writers) and how each generation re-invents him. We'll wrestle with classic questions (was Sherlock really a misogynist?) and debate broader topics such Sherlock as a dysfunctional genius, Gothic influences, the presence of British colonialism in the Canon, etc. And we aren't forgetting the supporting cast of Dr. John Watson, Mrs. Hudson and Mycroft, clients, villains, the police and Scotland Yard. "Come at once if convenient. If inconvenient, come all the same." (stringcat3)
