A special treat for Stormy Petrels!!

Our own “Priory Schoolmaster” Sheldon Goldfarb is offering, to Petrel members attending the November meeting, a complimentary copy of his book:

Sherlockian Musings mockup 3

This wonderful book has received many positive reviews by International Sherlockians.

“My name is Sherlock Holmes…my business is that of every other good citizen – to uphold the law.”

November’s adventure was first published in Liberty for March 1927 and in The Strand  for April 1927.  The last of the short stories, written just 3 years before the death of ACD (aged 71)

On November 5th the Stormy Petrels will meet to discuss “Shoscombe Old Place“, an adventure which is overloaded with “D’s”: death; deception; desperation; drama; denial; deduction; a dark crypt and a dog.

Something unusual has happened at Shoscombe that has caused the inhabitants to behave strangely.

Let’s discuss why!

When:  Tuesday, Nov. 5th at 7:00 p.m.

Where:  The lounge in the Chatham at Hampton Place.

Bonus Question for those attending:  Name two types of fish named in the story.

For an added BONUS, can you name four types of fish mentioned in the story?
