LuRKing on the Web
The Laurie R. King web site has dozens of corners and byways that, if you haven’t gone exploring there in a while, you may not have seen.
For example: If Watson were a Woman—not by Laurie King, but by guest author Fred Erisman, who explores an assertion made in 1941 by Rex Stout, that Watson was in fact a woman. Yes, before Lucy Liu was even born.
As Professor Erisman says:
The Watsonian voice, with all its assumptions and elisions, is so much a part of the Holmes stories that it raises a compelling question: what if Watson were someone else, and, more particularly, what if Watson were a woman?
