Farmerphile #12 -- The Sherlock Holmes issue

FARMERPHILE: The Magazine of Philip José Farmer no. 12 is now available.

This is the Sherlock Holmes issue, and as such it's selling out quickly. Plus, those interested in Phil's Wold Newton family tree are going to want to pick up this issue, because we've discovered an addition to the tree by him that somehow didn't make it into the final printed version of DOC SAVAGE: HIS APOCALYPTIC LIFE!
