Everard Off-Stage

Everard's Exploits Between Stories

(i) He accompanied Keith Denison, Specialist, East Indo-European Protohistory, when the latter studied, and joined, a prehistoric trek from the Don across the Hindu Kush.

(ii) He accompanied Bjarni Herjulfsson to North America and received a polar bear rug from him.

(iii) He has worked with Piet Van Sarawak at least once.

(iv) On a mission in Scandinavia, near the end of the Viking period, he heard a tale of Sigurd.

(v) He has been in the London of Elizabeth I.

(vi) Between Wanda's graduation from the Academy and a meeting with her in 1990, he had two missions. Instead of returning to his apartment in 1988 after the missions, he sublet it to an agent who needed such a temporary base.

(vii) After a meeting with Guion in 1990, he will help the Time Patrol military studies group in 1912 to throw Sherlock Holmes off their scent.

(I think that the Patrol can consult Holmes after his retirement when his deeds are no longer recorded by Watson. He could help them with a case concerning that earlier Moriarty, Jonathan Wild.)

Hi, Paul!

Or possibly RECRUIT Sherlock Holmes into the Time Parol. An amusing idea!

He'd be a natural!

Paul Shackley said...

Dear Mr. Stirling!

I agree! And I would like the Time Patrol to recruit Dr. Watson as well. Holmes and Watson belong together!

I hope you see this comment!

MY idea was that the Patrol would contact Holmes when he was no longer in contact with Watson because they would not want to affect Watson's published accounts of Holmes' activities.

Paul Shackley said...

Kaor, Paul!

Even better, perhaps, would be the Patrol contacting Holmes after both he and Watson had retired, after the doctor had stopped recording Holmes cases.

And I still don't understand why my comments SEEM to upload properly and then disappear!
