Compiled by Vincent Brosnan, from the columns that Bliss Austin contributed to The Northumberland Dispatch, the newsletter of the Fifth Northumberland Fusiliers of Pittsburgh, between 1978 and 1981. Austin was one of the great Sherlockian collectors, and he loved to share his fortune and his knowledge. These essays cover the Canon, The Exploits and other pastiches, translations and more; they're quirky, wise and fascinating.
Bibliomania by The Engineer's Thumb a.k.a. Bliss Austin is the full title of this publication which consists of 21 essays on the Canon, particularly on the Holmesian cases but also on foreign translations, pastiches, competitions, lists, Doyle, Chesterton, etc.
