Yay, we've snagged Alchamy513!
It's nice that one of the side-effects of the current movie and TV adaptations is that they'll get at more people interested in the original stories and novels. And the fact that they're free for e-readers is probably a huge boost too. I ran into a friend on the subway the other day and he was reading "The Adventure of the Solitary Cyclist", which he'd got as a freebie on his Kindle. He'd never read any of the stories before, and was greatly enjoying them.
Been thinking about dates. I think I'll post it about the 20th of October, with ten days of sign-ups. That'll leave 5 weeks of crafting time for send-outs the first week of December.
There's probably no point in starting before the end of October, as too many people will be working themselves into nervous exhaustion over Hallowe'en swaps, decorating and costuming. And if it's too late it runs into Christmas mania. So this will be right in between.
Mark your calendars!
