I Discovered Sherlock Holmes When I Was 8 Years Old

I discovered Sherlock Holmes in 1965 when I was just 8 years old.

The next year I begged for The Complete Sherlock Holmes for my 9th birthday. I received it, but was shocked when I found that "The Case of the Dying Detective" was missing! My wonderful mother returned it and located the actually Complete Sherlock Holmes to my delight.

Since then I've read that book too many times to recount and collected multiple copies of various editions of the stories. I've enjoyed many Holmes pastiches as well. :)
