Hmm.  Well, I intensely dislike the original Holmes, and quite like
Ms. King's stories.  And she's hardly the first to do Holmes.

DWJ is a _much_ better writer than Conan Doyle.


 From my close observation of writers... they fall
into two groups: those who bleed copiously and
visibly at any bad review, and those who bleed
copiously and secretly at any bad review.
