I got recced Beekeeper's Apprentice about a week ago too. And yes, amazon prime *emotear*

I'll check out the BeeKeeper's Apprentice...the title sounds interesting but I know nothing about the story.

Beekeeper's Apprentice is teh shit

I have nothing but love for King's revamped Holmes & Co. I like Mary Russell tremedously and have loved everyting except the "hall" book. The first two, heck even three are astounding "A letter of Mary" and "Monstrous Regiment of Women" rocked the casbah. Honestly. I liked the last one that just came out as well.

I have to say though, I'm a sucker for BkA and MRoW. hey, in a word, Rock. And there is some fairly decent (and lots of horrid) fanfic.. especially as dammit_holmes. good times.

If you've read the works of H.P. Lovecraft (or even just know anything about his creature Cthulhu), you might enjoy this short story by Neil Gaiman, "A Study in Emerald". It's a crossover fic of Sherlock Holmes and H.P. Lovecraft, and is exquisite and creepy as only Gaiman can make it. It's available here in PDF format, and is a bit hard to read, but it's worth it. If you scroll down just a bit on this page, you'll see the link for the story.


The Beekeeper's Apprentice is really good!

And waiting a week is good for your character...


Well, taht is what they always tell me.


I love The Beekeeper's Apprentice - hang on in there, it's worth the wait. I agree that the first few books of the series are a lot easier to read that the later one's but they're still worth the effort.

The Beekeepers Apprentice is excellent! It's one of my all-time favourite books!
