Join Dr. Ann McClellan as she guides us through the long history of Sherlock fandom, including the character's endless capacity for adaptation across generations. From the origins of literary fan clubs in the 19th century to the more recent phenomenon of fan fiction, McClellan shows us the dazzling array of ways Sherlock has outlived Arthur Conan Doyle's original stories.
