    Redmond's Delicate Question

    "The Creeping Man" has sometimes been cited, even published, as an example of Arthur Conan Doyle's science fiction. Is it really more satisfying to an enthusiast of early sf or to a follower of Sherlock Holmes and the early detective story -- or is it equally unsatisfactory to both?
