A Study in Emerald

Happy Halloween! I’ve been posting for the past month about All Hallow’s Read. If you’re not familiar with All Hallow’s Read, don’t worry, the idea is very simple: give someone a scary book for Halloween.

I can’t give a book to everyone that I know. It would bankrupt me. But, I can share a story that is available for free online. Since All Hallow’s Read is Neil Gaiman’s brainchild, I thought it would be appropriate to share one of his short stories.

If you’re a fan of Sherlock Holmes, Cthulhu, and to a certain extent Doctor Who, then I’ve got a treat for you. The short story is Neil Gaiman’s “A Study in Emerald.” It’s available online in PDF form.

It’s an enchanting read. Make sure you stick around for the twist at the end. I bet you won’t see it coming.
