Hey Sherlock fans- have you heard of the Bay Area Sherlock Convention? It's coming up on August 2nd and 3rd in Berkeley.

There's a whole list of awesome guests including Laurie R King (www.laurierking.com/)

There will also be panels, an artist's alley and a handful of artist guests. These guests will include Elsa Chang (elasmosaurus.tumblr.com/)
