The Top 5 in April

APRIL MIGHT HAVE BEEN the cruelest month for T. S. Eliot, but here at ONTOS a lot of our Faithful Readers seem to have found it pleasurable enough. The most popular posting involved the "Forerunners of Sherlock Holmes," followed by a clever SFF tale ("The 13th Juror"), a trenchant study of criminal psychology ("The Corpse in the 'Tween-Decks"), a one-pager with a nice twist ("Listen to Reason"), and finally one of our "Miscellaneous Monday" excursions. We've also included the most popular items from three years previous.
