July Read-a-Thon Update: Day 2

This time, you get even day posts!

Page count so far:

  • 61 pages from Detection by Gaslight: 14 Victorian Detective Stories by Douglas Greene [Ed.]. Selections were: Catherine Pirkis, “The Ghost of Fountain Lane”; Baroness Orczy, “The York Mystery”; L.T. Meade & Robert Eustace, “Mr. Bovey’s Unexpected Will”; E. and H. Heron, “The Story of Baelbrow”. Notes: Some of these pieces were so good! I do adore Baroness Orzcy, though I’ve only read her Scarlet Pimpernel stuff; this was quite different, but still good. The Heron selection, however, was absolute drivel.

I’ve got a couple errands, and some writing to get done, but I’ll be reading some 25 more pages from On Looking [Horowitz], and then starting in on the pile of Holmes books and stories I’ve got coming up!

Running page count: 61
