ASH, the oldest women's Sherlockian society, is in New York City. Although a few men had been given honorary membership in 1991, men were admitted to full membership in 2008, the 40th anniversary of ASH. Read about ASH and Irene Adler, the original Adventuress. The Serpentine Muse* is the official ASH journal -- everyone is welcome to subscribe and contribute articles or poetry of Sherlockian and/or Victorian interest. On the Muse page find summaries of past volumes and winning entries from the annual Birthday Challenge writing competition. In 2004 and 2005, Gasogene Press published the first and second volumes of Serpentine Muse-ings, an anthology of the best articles from past issues. Events & Activities announces upcoming events and reports on past ASH gatherings such as the Spring and Fall Dinners and The Baskerville Bash. Enjoy some classic ASH songs and favorite Sherlockian poetry. Check the Victorian Links for historic information and period clothing -- the Sherlockian links connect to additional Holmes & Watson resources on the Internet.

The Members Page is open to all, but access to the ASH Directory is limited to ASH members and requires an ID and password. Members can update their own information in the Directory and look up other members alphabetically or by geographic area. Contact the Webmistress at mmckayATL@comcast.net for a password or for other issues relating to the website.
