    3.5 Stars. This was a pretty good modernized and gender switched Sherlock Homes novella. In this story Sherlock is an asexual lesbian, Watson is also a lesbian and Detective Lestrade is a woman. There are a few other characters you might recognize from the Holmes universe but they didn...

    I received an ARC of this book from Less Than Three Press and Netgalley in exchange for an honest review. Unlike many reviews I?ve attempted recently, the start of this one is easy: Why did I read this work here? Because it involves Sherlock Holmes, it?s a short story, it?s a ...

    The idea of Sherlock Holmes as a woman? Cool. As an asexual lesbian? Okay. A Holmesian mystery? Yes please. Alchemy should have worked better for me, and I'm sorry it didn't... The present tense is almost always going to hurt a story for me. This tense rarely comes out sounding n...

    Anyone ever watch Warehouse 13? Remember how H.G. Wells is a woman? Welp. Now Sherlock Holmes is, too in Marie S. Crosswell's, Alchemy. Not only is she a woman, she's a gay woman, an asexual, gay woman. Never try to tell me representation doesn't matter, because it does. Any one of t...

    Oh this was so fascinating. A somewhat dark, modern, gender-swapped retelling of Sherlock Holmes, where not only is Sherlock asexual, but she falls in love with female Lestrade and still keeps her wonderful friendship with Watson? The story was intriguing, the ace relationship was cle...

    The idea of Sherlock Holmes as a woman? Cool. As an asexual lesbian? Okay. A Holmesian mystery? Yes please. Alchemy should have worked better for me, and I'm sorry it didn't... The present tense is almost always going to hurt a story for me. This tense rarely comes out sounding n...

    Anyone ever watch Warehouse 13? Remember how H.G. Wells is a woman? Welp. Now Sherlock Holmes is, too in Marie S. Crosswell's, Alchemy. Not only is she a woman, she's a gay woman, an asexual, gay woman. Never try to tell me representation doesn't matter, because it does. Any one of t...

    Oh this was so fascinating. A somewhat dark, modern, gender-swapped retelling of Sherlock Holmes, where not only is Sherlock asexual, but she falls in love with female Lestrade and still keeps her wonderful friendship with Watson? The story was intriguing, the ace relationship was cle...
