My fellow Hounds:

I just yesterday received my first issue of Marvin Kaye's latest editorial effort, "Sherlock Holmes Mystery Magazine." It is published by John Betancourt's Wildside Press and is certainly a collector's item. Plans are apparently underway to follow up with quarterly issues, so we can hope it will continue to entertain us. At present, the website does not support subscription service, but, since such service is advertised in the magazine, I'm sure it will be available soon.

The first issue includes five new tales and a reprint of "The Gloria Scott." Further, there is an interesting interview of Ron Goulart written by Carole Buggé, book reviews by Kim Newman and a set of intriguing responses to "reader inquiries" by Mrs. Hudson (Paula Volsky?). The new tales include an excellent Sherlockian novella by Carole Buggé, a Sherlockian-oriented short mystery by Hal Charles and a Simon Ark tale by Edward D. Hoch. The other two tales include rather gruesome adventures by Marc Bilgrey and the late Jean Paiva. Finally, there are a sprinkling of Sherlockian cartoons, film reviews by Lenny Picker and an Editorial setting out the goals of the publication.

If the initial promise is fulfilled in later issues, I hope we will have the

My very first issue of the new SHERLOCK HOLMES MYSTERY MAGAZINE and I can tell you, it's a great bargain! Many would pay the cover price just to get their hands on the Simon Ark story by Edward D. Hoch, "The Automaton Museum," contained herein--not that it's one of Hoch's best, but sort of as a sentimental gesture of respect for a man who wrote upwards of 800 stories.

There are so many pages and so many stories I know I will be reading this one for the next couple of years. Anyone who can possibly afford it should order a subscription now--they're cheap and the magazine is indispensable.

I particularly enjoyed the critical material, not so much the fiction, though Jean Paiva's story has it charms and the editors plan to print all of her unpublished writing over the next few years. How generous and philanthropic! The best piece in the magazine is a closely reasoned and effective article by Leonard Picker on the different film versions of THE HOUND OF THE BASKERVILLES, showing the good points of each and yet, sadly, why none of them have yet matched the book. Picker holds out a ray of hope though that a great version may one day yet be made, and gives would-be writers and producers some pointers on how to avoid the pitfalls of earlier versions.

Was hoping for a lot more. Big Holmes fan, reads everything. Excited when I first saw item coming out. Feel overpriced. Too much filler that falls short of the mark. Some lame. Original Holmes story pretty good. Needs new direction in future? Eric

I won't devote a lot of time to this - it isn't worth your time or your money. I gave up 2/3 of the way through and tossed it in the recycle bin. Second rate writing, poor plots -- amateur hour, through and through. Decent book reviews -- do you really want to spend ten bucks on book reviews? I don't know who the folks are that gave this high ratings, but they have to owe someone money. A great shame that trees actually lost their lives to put this travesty out.
