The Man Who Recreated 221B in his Basement
221B Reading, PA
For CrimeReads this week I wrote about my visit to Denny Dobry's recreation of Sherlock Holmes's famous London flat... in Reading, Pennsylvania.

Where else would one see a gasogene, tantalus, and Victorian-era tins of all four types of tobacco mentioned in Arthur Conan Doyle's Holmes stories?
The Art of Endpaper Design
L.H. Johnson praises endpapers on BookRiot, offering online resources for other enthusiasts.

Among those included is the Facebook Group "We Love Endpapers," started by rare book dealer Simon Beattie. You'll find regular postings there by collectors, dealers, and librarians alike.
Bonus Round
I can't be 100% sure
Once upon a time, two science fiction/fantasy authors started a Twitter conversation ... that became an improvisational horror story.

The thread of authors Sam Sykes and Chuck Wendig went viral (you should really read it if you haven't) -- and now SyFy has made a movie out of it. As one does.

Also: buy their books.
