“My mind,” he said, “rebels at stagnation. Give me problems, give me work, give me the most abstruse cryptogram, or the most intricate analysis, and I am in my own proper atmosphere… I abhor the dull routine of existance. I crave for mental exaltation. That is why I have chosen my own particular profession, or rather created it, for I am the only one in the world…. The only unofficial consulting detective.”

The Stormy Petrels of BC are back to discuss “The Sign of Four” (or, The Sign of the Four”.

This adventure, as Steve Clarkson puts it, “has something for everyone: exotic locales, fierce Sikh warriors, a cannibal shooting poison darts, a bearded one-legged villain, a fabulous treasure, secret hiding places, revenge, war, violent death, betrayal, and romance.”

If any or all of the above appeal to you, come to our meeting, if not, come all the same.

The date: Tuesday, Feb. 7. The time: 7:00 pm Location: Chez Wood.
