Oh--I almost forgot. My novel is out: "A Scandal in Toronto." It's available on Amazon Kindle. Cheap! If you read it, I hope you like it. It's based on a true story--the disappearance of Ambrose Small, a theatre magnate in Toronto, in 1919. The Toronto Police closed the case as unsolved in 1960. It seemed like a suitable case for Sherlock Holmes!
(If you had to choose only one group.) Holmes and Watson from Sherlock Holmes? Or Seward, the Harkers, Morris, Holmwood, and Professor Van Helsing from Dracula? Personally, I would choose Seward, the Harkers, Morris, Holmwood, and Van Helsing. I've always admired them as brave men (and one brave woman ahead of her time). I wouldn't be able to stand Holmes's sarcasm. I'd be like, "Seriously? Watson can take your crap--not me."
I'm confused about Doyle's descriptions of Watson in Sherlock Holmes. In some parts, he says that Watson was wounded in the arm. In other adventures, he says Watson was wounded in the leg. Which is which? And the first description we have of Watson is "as thin as a lath and as brown as a nut." But when we get to The Adventure of Charles Augustus Milverton, he's described as robust. What the? I thought he was thin! Which is which? Was Watson thin or not? And what's with his name? He's named John in most stories, but in The Man With the Twisted Lip, Mary calls him "James."
