    From the Wiki page: “The culminating achievement of the early school of detective fiction was the Sherlock Holmes stories of Arthur Conan Doyle, which formed the model for the Golden Age in general.”

    Does that mean that Holmes stories are or are not included in this tour?

    Hi Heather,

    Good question! The tour is focused on authors of detective fiction who were actually writing during the Golden Age, so a post just on the Holmes stories wouldn’t fit. However, if someone wanted to write about how you can see the influence of the Holmes stories in the Golden Age, perhaps by comparing and contrasting a Holmes story with a story by a Golden Age author, that would fit.

    Thanks Teresa! That makes sense. 🙂

    I just found your blog today! I wish I could have shown up early enough to have signed up for the tour, as G.K. Chesterton is one of my favourite writers ever. =(

    Ah, well . . . I can at least hope that I run into another fan of his Father Brown stories, right?
