"Forty Words for Sherlockians" describes this publication, which consists of short, snappy commentaries on 40 words that should be familiar to fans of the Holmes stories. Some of the words: Adventures, Gasogene, Pastiche, and Tantalus. (Curious about Gasogene? Here is the explanation: "The presiding officer of the Baker Street Irregulars, in that society's halcyon days, who took his title from a Victorian appliance used to charge whisky with soda-water.") The text of An Irregular Pictionary is contributed by Chris Redmond and the 40 illustrations by Paul Churchill.
