The wait is almost over...

Are you ready? The first issue of our e-magazine, Proceedings of the Pondicherry Lodge, will be out in a few hours!

Hold on. We're just figuring out the best way to upload it, so you can download it in the most convenient manner!

Meanwhile, here's a bit of a treat for all the fans of BBC Sherlock - the second episode of the third season ("The Sign of Three") has finished shooting, and Mark Gatiss ("Mycroft Holmes") tweeted this picture (we got it from Sherlockology) of Benedict Cumberbatch as Sherlock Holmes:

With bated breath, we await the release of Season 3.

For fans of the CBS Elementary, Season 2 is to be out this fall...and Sherlock and Jane are going to London! This is an old image, but well, it's nice!

For the Robert Downey Jr. Sherlock Holmes fans, we don't really know much...but here's a picture to make you feel nice:

So...happy now?

Holmes and Watson in India!

Courtesy of the renowned Louise Nicholson, we present to you a flyer prepared by her for the upcoming visit to India of the members of the Sherlock Holmes Society of London. All interested SHSI members, or other Sherlockians and Holmesians, please get in touch with Louise directly. We have details of the full tentative itinerary with costs and the application form, so you can collect it from us if you wish. This will be featured in the e-magazine as well.

  3. The winter issue of our e-magazine (Volume 1, Issue 2) will be out on December 1, 2013.
  4. Visitors from the Sherlock Holmes Society of London are arriving in India for a Sherlockian adventure in February, 2014. We are sketching out the details, but at the very least, we shall host a dinner party for them.
As a special birthday treat, we present to you the cover of our e-magazine:

To everyone who has been a part of this society, kudos!

Keep your eyes on this page; we will put up the e-magazine here on Sunday!

We have four published authors of Sherlock Holmes books in the Society. Tim Symonds has published - not one, but two - Sherlock Holmes adventures. Pinaki Roy has published one. Partha Basu has published one. And Vasudev Murthy has one that's on its way.
Cool, isn't it? If you haven't read these yet, the links are given above.
Don't forget to bring your copies to the Annual Meet to get them signed by the authors!

We have a blog...finally!
The Sherlock Holmes Society of India is not a new society - it is about to celebrate its 12th birthday on May 28, 2013 and enter its 13th year!
Cool, eh?
The home group page, of course, remains the source (visit us for invigorating discussions on Sherlock Holmes), and you may want to check out our cool Facebook page as well (which a lot of people are working very hard to maintain).
We are also launching the inaugural issue of our e-magazine on June 1, 2013. More on that later.
