A shocking and dastardly literary crime has been perpetrated upon a heretofore unsuspecting citizenry. How could you allow The Sun to publish such a travesty about the fictional sleuth Sherlock Holmes ("On the case," Dec. 23)? Contrary to what the writer claims, Sherlock Holmes was not the first consulting detective in modern literature, and Arthur Conan Doyle did not invent the police procedural. In fact, a character named C. Auguste Dupin was on the case nearly five decades before Holmes made his first appearance.

The opening of the Edgar Allan Poe House at 30 Amity Street was a small milestone in preserving important historical realities of Baltimore City. This opening also represented a significant achievement by a small number of citizens who realized that cooperative nonprofit action can serve a constructive purpose. It is interesting to note that the French sociologist Alexis de Tocqueville, in his work "Democracy in America," in the 1830s noted that Americans "are forever forming associations.

ONE hundred fifty years after his death, over on Broadway, is there hope that Edgar A. Poe will now be thought of more as an author, less as a lurid public figure? What a dumb question, in a world that dotes on celebrities and personalities.A double handful of anthology poems; a dozen or more masterly short stories, some of them superior gothics, others the first detective fictions -- the trouble is, everybody's aware of them; they were assigned classroom reading. But there it stops. Who as a grown-up reads Poe's barrel of literary theory and criticism, his many letters, his non-warhorse tales and poetry?

Edgar Allan Poe was a pretty open-minded guy. "I do not believe that any thought, properly so called," he once said, "is out of the reach of language. " So this Baltimore favorite son presumably would have been cool with the "Homo Poe Show," which started as a single thought - Is there a way to see Poe through a gay lens? - and resulted in enough provocative language to launch an evening-length collection of four short theater works. It's the brainchild of Steven J. Satta, founding member and artistic director of Iron Crow Theatre Company, a Baltimore troupe that emphasizes works with lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender perspectives.

Washington College's bid for a third consecutive appearance in the NCAA tournament will have to be accomplished without a trio of players who were crucial to the past two playoff runs. Attackman Bennett Cord graduated, taking with him a team-leading 33 goals and 31 assists last season en route to being named a second-team All American. Senior Jim Cusick, who recorded 28 goals and four assists in 2012, has shown the potential to fill Cord's role as a playmaker, but coach Jeff Shirk said he does not expect Cusick to play like Cord.

"You might call him 'The Leader of the Cult of the Unusual' " - Jules Verne Edgar Allan Poe, whose creepy tales of terror continue to thrill new generations of readers, lived in a crowded household from 1832 to 1835 at what is now 203 N. Amity St. Poe, who was born 205 years ago Sunday, had lived in Baltimore on Mechanics Row on Wilks Street, east of the Jones Falls, in 1829. The next year he entered West Point but was dismissed a year later. Poe returned to Baltimore and moved into the 21/2-story brick rowhouse with green shutters that was built around 1830 for Charles Klassen in a rural area that then marked the western edge of the city.

The stream of visitors who passed through the iron gates at Fayette and Greene streets this week reverenced Edgar Allan Poe's monument and grave, but then they soon drifted along the lanes and brick paths of this historic churchyard on the western edge of downtown Baltimore. This Halloween offers visitors a chance to go one better. The catacombs under the 1851 Westminster Presbyterian Church will be open Thursday. And while I am not much of a believer in ghosts, this quirky part of old-time Baltimore is a must destination for the ghost-believing or merely historically curious.

The group plans to reopen the brick rowhouse at 203 N. Amity St. for good in the spring. Hours this month are noon-4 p.m. on Saturdays and Sundays.
