One thought on “Episode 82 – Manly Wade Wellman’s “Sherlock Holmes’s War of the Worlds” with our Patron Book Club”

  1. I am really, really far behind on listening to the podcast, but I am working on catching up!

    The crystal egg also comes from an HG Wells story.

    My reading of this story is that Holmes is disparaging Victorian attitudes toward homosexuality, not agreeing with them.

    Excellent listening!
