Student newspaper at U South Dakota publishes ad for Sherlock Holmes

The online edition of The Volante, the student newspaper at University of South Dakota, has agreed to run one of the ads we are submitting to colleges around the country.

THE GAS CHAMBER OF SHERLOCK HOLMES
Samuel Crowell
The full text of the book is here.

The ad is displayed at the head of each section of the paper. The Volante ran an ad in its print edition for my book Break His Bones several months back with no great outcry or protest. I think that faculty at USD might be considerably less conformist than their “progressive” counterparts proved to be last month at U Wisconsin-Madison.

Anyhow, we should give whatever support possible to the student journalists working at The Volante.

'The Gas Chambers of Sherlock Holmes' sounds like the title of the next Sherlock Holmes movie, it is too cute and unless one investigates they will have no idea of what it means. Did the Volante editors know what the book is about?

Now, the book you should be advertising is 'The Hoax of the Twentieth Century, the Case Against the Presumed Annihilation of the European Jews'. It is was past time to stop pussyfooting around !
