“Edinburgh’s Sherlock Holmes Statue and the Paw Print.”

M.J. Downing

In my “Werewolves of Edinburgh” novel, I mentioned the fact you see demonstrated in the picture above. It shows the feet of the Holmes statue in Edinburgh, which stands—stood, perhaps, since it was just moved back—on the site of what was once 11 Picardy Place, the birthplace of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. On the statue’s base are two paw prints, actually, one large, one small, a “monstrous hound” perhaps and a small mongrel with an unerring nose? Or, as I have it, one werewolf and one canine to be named later? I am currently taking suggestions for the smaller mongrel’s name to be used, perhaps, in the fourth book, now in draft.
