Battling Super Sleuths: The Awkward Case of Elementary, Sherlock, and Building the Better Adaptation
If it is news to you that there are people who do not adore Sherlock… well, now it’s not. And the split is extending itself to the critical sphere, too; even the AV Club is keen to enlighten us as to why Sherlock should be learning a thing or two from its cross-Atlantic cousin. There are some incredibly valid points on this front for sure, but I keep the thinking the vitriol on either side is blinding what might be a very interesting give and take on how to successfully update beloved stories.
We’re celebrating the re-launched Story magazine tonight with the special “B-Side” section. Editor Ryan Britt just dropped off some copies and it looks GREAT, we love flipping it back and forth, as you can see.
Join Britt and contributors James Hannaham and Allegra Frazier tonight for a discussion of when genre fiction intersects with literary fiction (part of our Geek Week celebrations!). RSVP on Facebook if you would like, or just show up.
Ryan! Ryan is editing a thing that you should all read!
