More scholarly and humorous Sherlockian writings.

"Occasionally to Embellish"
Some Writings on Sherlock Holmes

By Nicholas Utechin

Classic Sherlockian scholarship is alive and well in this collection by one of the finest Sherlockian scholars of our era. Nicholas Utechin was, for thirty years, the editor of The Sherlock Holmes Journal, the official publication of The Sherlock Holmes Society of London, and has written numerous books on The Great Detective. Plunge into "Occasionally to Embellish" and discover — or rediscover — the joy of our great game as practiced by a master.

"We Sherlockians live in two worlds: our contemporary one and that of Sherlock Holmes. Few appreciate this more than the author of these essays. So crack the cover and begin to enjoy Sherlock Holmes again with Nick Utechin."
—Steven Rothman
Editor The Baker Street Journal

"Nicholas Utechin's "Occasionally to Embellish" is modestly subtitled "some writings on Sherlock Holmes"; it's a collection of reprints of some of Nick's literate and often humorous scholarship, from 1969 through 2009. There are new postscripts to many of the pieces, and the book offers a fine look at how much fun can be found in canonical criticism."
