Correspondence has come to light between Mary Russell and Other Important People, which will be revealed during the upcoming Twenty Weeks of Buzz. It follows the 1992 (not a typo—those old folks do get around!) tale published last year as MyStory (or, The Case of the Ravening Sherlockians.) [LINK to MyStory] The current saga posts in its prose (i.e., legible) version Wednesdays on Russell’s MySpace blog, then as the original documents on Fridays here in Mutterings.

The documents are varied, from re-used picture postcards to formal typed letters. Many seem to have been delivered by messenger service or in envelopes since lost—unfortunate for the sake of our research, but perhaps understandable when one considers the momentous gravity of matters at stake.
