Yes, it’s back. The strange case of Carter Dickson’s fantastic short story The House In Goblin Wood. Or, more accurately, the fact that I seem to get periodic spikes of interest in that post.
Below is a graph of the visits that the particular post has received. And for some reason, late January 2012 corresponds to a massive leap in interest, which has been repeated today. There are similar corresponding peaks (although not as high) in July, September and October. The pattern repeats on my other post about the review.
So, the Puzzle Doctor has put his hat on – not a deerstalker, more of an Indiana Jones type thing – and this lends weight to my theory that it’s set as part of a crime-reading course. But I am fascinated – where is this course?
If you’re one of the people studying it, do drop me a line. What other stories are on the syllabus? How much depth do you study the story in? Or is there another reason entirely that I’m missing?
Please, enlighten a poor confused blogger…
