Quintette of Questions: Atlin Merrick

Quintette asks writers five quick questions. This week’s interview is with: Atlin Merrick 1. What’s the name of your latest book – and how hard was it to pick a title? The Night They Met came out 30 December 2015 and, as it was inspired by and follows The Day They Met, the title was rather forehead-slappingly obvious. Seriously, I slapped my forehead. […]

GaryView: Sherlock Holmes – “The Last Vampyre” (starring Jeremy Brett)

Gary: That’s not how I remember the original story. Lissa: It’s nothing much like ‘The Sussex Vampire” at all, is it? Gary: Conan Doyle wouldn’t be impressed. Holmes wouldn’t be impressed. Lissa: You’re clearly not impressed. Gary: No. I’m not. Lissa: It’s a shame, because I really liked Jeremy Brett as Holmes. I watched some of those early episodes with […]
