Fragile Things (2006) – Neil Gaiman

I love curling up with a Neil Gaiman book, be it a novel or a collection of short stories, for me he is literary comfort food – engaging, a joy to lose myself in, and a spark for my own imagination. His collection of short stories and poems gathered in this volume, some of which…

Sherlock S03E03 – His Last Vow

And like that season 3 of Sherlock comes to an end, but oh, Mr. Moffat, you crafted a helluva season finale! It took me forever to find time to watch the episode, happily I remained spoiler-free, and it was so worth it… I had been looking forward to this moment all week, and as I…
