Hello there, new to the community, not to the Beekeeper series. Was pointed this way by a fellow member of another Sherlockian community, and viola! Here I am.Just finished The Language of Bees. I posted a full reaction post on another community, but as it is late and work was tiring today, I am not gonna post it at the moment. However, some of my fannish squeeing can be found beneath the cut:( I'll get some bees. They'll be like my children...Collapse )
Hello, I just recently joined this community (like...five minutes ago), though I've been poking for a while. I've been a Mary Russell fan for years, ever since randomly picking up Beekeeper's Apprentice in my library. And I do mean RANDOMLY. I was browsing the shelves, just looking for something and I saw the title and thought "Hey, that sounds like it might be..." And sure enough, it WAS Holmes' related. Tore through the book and loved it, then had to go out and buy it and all the others available at the time.That would have been up to...O Jerusalem, I think. My favourites are (naturally) Beekeeper, Monstrous Regiment of Women, The Moor, O Jerusalem, The Game, Language of Bees (but where's part 2, darn it?!? The suspense is killing me....).I graduated with my MLIS (Masters of Library & Information Studies) two years ago, have been working in a BIG bookstore since, and am now trying my very very best to get into an actual library, preferably in a school, though that does not seem to be forthcoming at the moment. Sigh. I raise my glass to you all.Cheers!
Hello, comm.I've recently come into this fandom and figured that I'd introduce myself. I know the comm has been quiet as of late, but I figured an introduction was worth a shot. Anyway, I'm new to the Russell stories, having just picked up The Beekeepers Apprentice a few weeks ago. I immediately fell in love with the story and the Russell/Holmes partnership. I ran out and bought all the books and am making my way through them (I'm on The Moor now). I've also been making my way through some of the fanfic out there (I almost cried today when I found that The Hive seems to be down) and I have to say that I've been impressed. I'm not sure if it's a self-selecting group of not, but the quality of the fic out there is really wonderful, so thank you for that.Anyway, I'm not new to fandom in general (and certainly not LJ), but I thought I'd just pop in and say hi! Cheers!
Yes, this is shameless promotion. My friend Lyndsay Faye has written a book. Not only has she written it but it has been published and is available in bookstores as of today. The book is called Dust and Shadow, a story about Holmes and Jack the Ripper, and it is highly enjoyable. She has done a fantabulous job and Simon & Schuster is already looking forward to publishing her next novel. If you are buying a book this week, I highly suggest this one. If you are not buying a book this week, go and ask your library to get it!
Hi, has anyone heard about Robert Downy (spelling?) Jr. playing Holmes? If so what do you think about it?
Hi! Thought I'd join up and say hello. My name is Becky and I used to be a member of Russ-L until I dropped out after repeated e-mail changes. At the time my nom de post was "a young Tiggy" though I imagine it's been recycled by now. Anyway, I just did the re-read and enjoyed myself immensely, so I thought I'd get back in the game, especially since LJ is such a convenient forum. Nice to meet you all!
... Just checked my dates, and I won't be able to catch LRK @ Paddington Library this Thursday. Small matter of a trip to Barcelona. (Dang!)Could anyone going please post up an account on Paddington, or any other talk? I would be MOST GRATEFUL :)
I'm trying to find a fic I read recently. Mary Russell goes undercover acting as a secretary to a bluff older man, the son makes advances. At one point Mary is taken to a home which is acting as a sort of club. Lord Peter Whimsy is also present and covers for Mary at one point.ETA: blushes that I mixed up fanfic with LRK's great book, Letter of Mary. But to be fair, it's unusual for Lord Peter to be written outside of D.L.Sayers corpus.
Hi (delete repeated word). I really love this series. I think I got into it when I was really small and I was around while my mom listened to them. I just think they're really intelligent, entertaining books.
