Update: July 2013

Following the entry of a default order against the Defendant, Conan Doyle Estate, Ltd., Leslie Klinger has filed a Motion for Summary Judgment asking that the Court enter a judgement against the Estate. Although the Estate accepted service in this matter, it never filed a responsive pleading. As a result, Klinger’s motion asserts, there are no material issues of fact in dispute and it is entitled to judgment as a matter of law. The motion has been noticed for hearing before the Court on August 6, 2013.

  1. Sherlock Holmes is indeed real and free to all the world. Trying to limit him is like trying to limit dreams of things made right.Or seeing the end of a dark passage.

  2. GREAT! Thanks for your courage and tenacity. You share more than a fictional story with Mary Russell and Sherlock Holmes — you share a love for what is right, versus what is legal. You are taking on the difficult task of bridging that gap. I have been working a series of novellas the last couple years, based on Holmes and other Doyle characters – almost a prequel to your series. It’s been a work of love, as I never thought I might be able to offer my work for publication. Your pioneering efforts now make that a possiblity. THANK YOU.
