The World is Now Prepared

Sir Arthur Conan Doyle knew about this 80 years ago.

"Matilda Briggs was not the name of a young woman," Watson, said Holmes in a reminiscent voice. "It was a ship. . ., which is associated with the giant rat of Sumatra, a story for which the world is not yet prepared." From "The Adventure of the Sussex Vampire"

Apparently the world is now prepared.

I wasn't consulted.
