flyakate: shadowy sky and a figure (heaven't philosphy)
 Somehow, I never posted my Yuletide offering for this year (I was a pinch hit writer because I didn't get my act together in time to go through the regular draw, which is excellent because I probably never would have gotten to write this story and it's made my reading/writing life so interesting, not to mention gave me a great excuse to read Lovecraft over Christmas).

If you've never read A Study in Emerald, it is an amazingly spine-tingling and excellent short story by Neil Gaiman that answers the question: what would happen if the world of Lovecraft and the world of Sherlock Holmes... were one and the same? He has a pdf of the story for free on his website, so first go read
that. I'll wait.

I love this story down to its creepy crawly bones. Hope you enjoy it!
