Quandary Resolution 5689
logomaniac, artisanal, vox populi, thaumaturge
Tired of writing dialogue for his often logomaniac detective Sherlock Holmes, and of having to invent plots and clues that would show off his artisanal approach to crime-solving, Arthur Conan Doyle killed off his creation; he did not anticipate the resulting outcry, however, and although it seemed it would take a true thaumaturge to raise Holmes from the dead, once the vox populi had spoken, Doyle brought his character back with no more than a little plot-tweaking.
