Legends of the BSJ: Edgar W. Smith
“I wanted to speak with Mr. Smith” [SIGN]     This is the third in our series on Legends of the Baker Street Journal; we've previously explored publisher Ben Abramson (Episode 269) and BSI founder Christopher Morley (Episode 272). This time, we'll be looking at wordsmith and able administrator, Edgar W. Smith. It was Smith who deftly managed the operations of the Baker Street Irregulars and whose own interest in Sherlockian scholarship (his own and others) caused him to promote books and eventually found The Baker Street Journal. We follow Edgar's Sherlockian journey from his early correspondence with Vincent Starrett and Christopher Morley, to the 1940 dinner that brought the BSI roaring back to life, the Trilogy Dinner where three significant Sherlockian books were launched, the founding of the BSJ, and the addition of the Christmas Annual tradition. We have Sherlockian news, a special announcement, and of course the Canonical Couplet quiz. We thought last episode's was easy, but it looks like we tripped some people up. The winner, chosen at random from all correct answers, will receive one of the Old Series BSJs from the 1940s. Send your answer to comment @ ihearofsherlock .com by May 29, 2024 at 11:59 a.m. EDT.

The Autistic Sleuth
“That was the curious incident” [SILV]     From time to time, we see analysis and debate about whether Sherlock Holmes was autistic, had , or is in some other way on the spectrum. As neurodiversity becomes more understood and accepted in the 21st century, it seems natural to explore this not only with Holmes, but with other characters in the genre as well.  In The Autistic Sleuth, Christopher Chan and Patricia Meyer Chan, Ph.D., test the question: Is the entertainment industry celebrating neurodiversity or is it reinforcing stereotypes? They analyze how two dozen characters appearing in filmed productions from around the globe who are presented as atypical minds. We have Sherlockian news, as well as another round of the Canonical Couplet quiz. It's a super-easy one this time.

Hounds of the Hollywood Baskervilles
“I am one of the hounds” [STUD]   The golden age of Hollywood brought us stars like William Powell and Myrna Loy, and of course Basil Rathbone and Nigel Bruce. In Elizabeth Crowens' new novel Hounds of the Hollywood Baskervilles, we find them (and Dashiell Hammett) intervowen in a story that begins with the disappearance of Asta from The Thin Man movies, and Rathbone's own lost pup. Young private detectives Babs Norman and Guy Brandt team up with him to dig up the reasons behind these canine crimes. Elizabeth joined us to talk about her Sherlockian and historical fiction writing amid her busy book launch schedule. It's a fascinating and fun conversation. We have Sherlockian news, as well as another round of the Canonical Couplet quiz. It's a super-easy one this time.

Canonical Cornerstones
“some short sketch of the essentials” [BLAC]     What are the essential volumes that every Sherlockian should have in their library? John Bennett Shaw had an idea with what became known as . But a more modest and attainable version was needed. In stepped Peter Eckrich and Rob Nunn, BSI (“Elementary”). IHOSE listeners may recall Peter and Rob from their previous work, . This time, they collected individuals who had a strong view as to which Sherlockian books ought to be part of every Sherlockian's library to develop 17 recommendations that make up . The 17 essays (a Canonically-appropriate number) are each a window into the interests, passion, and knowledge that the authors bring to their subjects, which range from some early Sherlockian scholarship to some latter-day must-haves. We have the Canonical Couplet quiz again. The winner, chosen at random from all correct answers, will win a copy Canonical Cornerstones. Send your answer to comment @ ihearofsherlock .com by March 29, 2024 at 11:59 a.m. EST.

A History of the Woman
“to Sherlock Holmes, she is always the woman” [SCAN]  This is a fascinating episode that brings us closer to the inside story of "The Woman" — an honor bestowed every year by the Baker Street Irregulars — and a bit of personal history from one of those very women. Beverly Wolov is a longtime Sherlockian and is well-known by the Sherlockian community as a longtime companion of Peter Blau, BSI ("Black Peter"). You've heard from Peter on four episodes previously (links to those below), but now you have an opportunity to hear about Bev's role — in particular how her journey is bookended by Michael Kean, "Wiggins" of the BSI. Bev does a wonderful job of bringing us back in time and helping us understand how The Woman is selected, what has happened at their dinners and how the proceedings have evolved, and even shares a bit of the tradition with us.   We have the Canonical Couplet quiz again. The winner, chosen at random from all correct answers, will win a copy of the 2022 Baker Street Journal Christmas Annual: Women on the Periphery of teh BSI, 1940–1960.

The Lantern's Dance
“a most complete and remarkable woman” [LION]    It's odd to think that the Mary Russell series predates this show, yet we've never spoken with Laurie R. King, BSI ("The Red Circle") specifically about her most acclaimed series. The 18th book in the Mary Russell series, The Lantern's Dance, is available on February 14, and Ms. King joined us to talk about her creation. Her familiarity with Sherlock Holmes is far from typical, and this unusual pairing of Ms. Russell and Mr. Holmes, which began with The Beekeeper's Apprentice in 1994, is as fresh and resilient as ever. We talk about the development of the Sherlock Holmes character in her series, the impact of India, how fandom has responded and grown, and discover at which major events Laurie will be appearing this year.  The Canonical Couplet quiz is back, and it's an easy one! The winner, chosen at random from all correct answers, will win a copy of The Lantern's Dance. Send your answer to comment @ ihearofsherlock .com by February 14, 2024 at 11:59 a.m. EST.

BSI Weekend Recap
“those week-end parties” [SOLI]    The Baker Street Irregulars just marked their 90th anniversary with the BSI Weekend, filled with events for Sherlockians of all kinds. If you weren't able to make it to New York — or even if you were! — tune in to hear about some of the events, people, books, and more that were part of our experience. And plan ahead for other events in the year ahead. After all, it's meeting up with other kinsprits that make this little hobby so special. Our first Canonical Couplet quiz of Season 18 is here, and that means it's your chance to participate and see if you can win yourself something from the IHOSE vaults or the BSI Weekend.

The Classified Dossier of Sherlock Holmes
“you have a good dossier there” [LAST]    There were supernatural elements in the original Sherlock Holmes stories. Elements of gothic intrigue like voodoo, a possible vampire, a family curse, and a spectral hound come to mind. So when Christian Klaver looked at the intersection of his interests in sci-fi, fantasy, Sherlock Holmes, and writing, it was only natural to find some existing and contemporary examples and bring them to life. Thus was born series from Titan Books. Christian shares stories of these passions with us, bringing us from his childhood inspiration to the Universal monsters, Cthulhu, and more. And we find ourselves back in 1890s London with Oscar Wilde and Conan Doyle for the third entry in the Dossier: . We even got Christian to spill his plans for his next series of books, so you'll want to tune in to hear about that. And if you are chosen as a winner of this Canonical Couplet quiz,  you'll get a copy of Christian's new book! Send your answer to comment @ ihearofsherlock .com by January 14, 2024 at 11:59 a.m. EST.

Belanger Books
“a line of books” [NOBL]    Derrick Belanger is one half of the duo responsible for Belanger Books, one of the prominent Sherlockian publishers, founded in 2015. His passion for Sherlock Holmes began uncommonly — in a way we can't ever recall hearing from a guest before. But that passion fueled the founding and direction of Belanger Books, which focuses on traditional Sherlock Holmes pastiches as well as the Solar Pons stories. Many of the titles on Belanger Books began as Kickstarter efforts, and the latest volume, Steel True, Blade Straight is an annual journal of Sherlock Holmes- and Sir Arthur Conan Doyle-inspired stories, poems, and scholarship and is endorsed by the ACD Society. We also have listener mail, Sherlockian news, and of course the Canonical Couplet, which features as a prize your choice of a book from the Belanger Books catalog.

Sherlock Mondays
“I was much astounded by this programme” [HOUN]    When Sherlockians are looking for more ways to fill their listening and viewing time, what are they to do? We would of course recommend you to either of the podcasts we create, but lucky for you, there's an even better option!  Sherlock Mondays are offered through the Rosenbach Museum and Library, running from September 2023 to April 2024. These Biblioventures are the creation of Edward G. Pettit, who is the Sunstein Senior Manager of Public Programs at the Rosenbach. For 30 weeks, Ed and his co-hosts take us through more than half of the Sherlock Holmes stories, complete with commentary and cocktails, among other things. Ed takes us behind the scenes to understand how this series was developed and what to expect next. You'll want to stick around for the Canonical Couplet.

On the Road with Erik Deckers
“the man flew past us on the road” [PRIO]  Photo credit:   We love writers and we love humor, so when we meet a writer who has a humor column, even better. And Erik Deckers — a name familiar to people in these parts — fits the bill. Erik's weekly syndicated humor column is a fun read, just as his attempts at solving the Canonical Couplet each episode are a fun listen. But we delve deeper than humor with Erik: we talk about his writing history, his term as a writer-in-residence at the Jack Kerouac House, as well as the Sherlockian connection to the author of On the Road.

Sherlock & Co.
“the reputation of being excellent company” [ENGR]   For this 275th episode of I Hear of Sherlock Everywhere, we're joined by another podcast. It always delights us to talk about audio with other audio geeks.   Joel Emery is writer and co-creator of Sherlock & Co., a new podcast from Goalhanger Podcasts. Together with his partner Adam Jarrell, they're dramatizing the entire canon of 60 stories in the form of a real-crime podcast, with John H. Watson as the narrator.   It's an ambitious and creative endeavor, and we talked to Joel about his inspirations, the creative process, partnering with a podcast juggernaut, working with a cast on the other side of the globe, the sound design, writing for Watson as an audio everyman, the most challenging story to write, Joel's favorite, and much more.   We have yet another Canonical Couplet that should be easy to solve.

The Worlds of Sherlock Holmes
“How came you there?” [BLAC]    Questing was Sherlock Holmes's business. He took in the world around him and tried (and succeeded most often) to make sense of it — as did his creator Arthur Conan Doyle. In his efforts to connect the dots in his latest book, , Andrew Lycett goes questing, just as many of his previous biographical subjects did.   We journey with Andrew across the place, the times, the wider world that gave birth to this remarkable character, and the way the character shaped the world. The marvel over the physical book itself, which is beautifully done and the perfect addition to every Sherlockian library. We have news items from the Sherlockian world and another Canonical Couplet that is absurdly simple. Be sure to submit your answer for consideration for a copy of The Worlds of Sherlock Holmes.

Close to Holmes
“The table was set out ready for me, and Mr. Duncan” [REDH]    The wonder and magic of the Sherlock Holmes stories is that they were set, for their contemporary audience, in a city and its surroundings that were very familiar and very real. Alistair Duncan set out to capture that in his book Close to Holmes, taking us on many journeys by foot and other conveyances, with wonderful photographs supported by vivid descriptions. Even though we weren't alive when the stories were written, we can feel as if we were there. We discuss the impetus for this book, as well as Alistair's four other Sherlockian books — the first of which was the impetus for MX Publishing to focus on Sherlock Holmes. We have news from the Sherlockian world and another easy-peasy Canonical Couplet. Did you win last time? Will you win this time?

Legends of the BSJ - Christopher Morley
“For three hours we strolled about together” [RESI]    As we continue our look at some of the early Baker Street Irregulars associated with The Baker Street Journal (we began with its publisher Ben Abramson in Episode 269), we turn to Christopher Morley. Morley was the right man at the right time with the right attitude, and Steven Rothman, BSI, 2s. ("The Valley of Fear") is the foremost expert on this legend of the BSJ. We look at Morley's early life, his influences, his literary works, and his popularity leading up to and through the time of the establishment of Sherlockian societies.

The Collected Papers of Sherlock Holmes and More
“put the papers on the sundial” [FIVE]    David Marcum is still at it. When we last left this prolific author and editor, he was 28 volumes into The MX Book of New Sherlock Holmes Stories. Now, he is approaching the 40th volume and has edited over 1,000 Sherlock Holmes pastiches. His own stories — now at 113 — can be found in multiple volumes of The Collected Papers of Sherlock Holmes, and he continues to dedicate his time to related characters such as Solar Pons and Nero Wolfe. We spoke with David about his editing process, the ideal settings for Sherlock Holmes, chronologies, the money raised by MX Publishing for Undershaw, and much more. There are Sherlockian news headlines and the ever-present Canonical Couplet. Did you win last time? Will you win this time?

CrimeReads with Olivia Rutigliano
“read twelve hours a day at the annals of crime” [VALL]    We all come to Sherlock Holmes in our own way. And Olivia Rutigliano is the first on this program to discover the detective in one particular fashion. We won't spoil it (you have to listen to find out), but suffice it to say it was enough to propel her not only into the world of detective fiction but an education and career in writing. Olivia is Associate Editor of CrimeReads, a vertical of LitHub and she is pursuing her doctorate at Columbia University, where her dissertation is "The Performing Detective: Investigation, Audience, and Acting in Victorian Entertainment."  As if that isn't enough to talk about, we also discuss the trajectory of crime fiction, the overlap of film (she studied film as an undergrad), and how there is a need for more intermingling of the worlds of academia and popular culture. We also bring back the Sherlockian news and have our usual Canonical Couplet. Did you win last time? Will you win this time?

Ben Abramson Speaks
“my strange old book-collector” [EMPT]  Ben Abramson with Vincent Starrett at a signing event for ‘Books Alive’ Circa 1940. Location Unknown / Photographer Unknown (Source: )   There are some Sherlockians we wish we could have interviewed for this program — individuals long gone but fondly remembered — whose unique perspectives would be a boon to our listeners. Unfortunately, most of them are beyond our reach. In this case however, we have one who is available to us but comes to us in a prepackaged interview. Ben Abramson, BSI ("The Beryl Coronet") was a bookseller and the first publisher of The Baker Street Journal. And he sat for an interview on the radio in 1954. We share Ben's background, his early days as a bookseller, his move from Chicago to New York City, his association with some of the Sherlockian greats such as Vincent Starrett, Edgar W. Smith, and Peter Blau, and trace the rise and tragic fall of the BSJ and of Ben himself.  The winner of the previous episode's Canonical Couplet is revealed and we share yet another couplet for your identification. The winner will receive a copy of an Old Series BSJ as published by Ben. Send your answer to comment @ ihearofsherlock .com by August 14, 2023 at 11:59 a.m. EST. All listeners are eligible to play.

A Study in Sherlock - Watson's Notebook
“Out came the official notebook” [WIST]    As we know from experience with Jonas Oldacre, when a builder puts his mind to something, he can really go far. In the case of Raymond Farney though, it concerns something that began as a personal project but ended up becoming a book — a reference book of more than 600 pages: A Study in Sherlock - Watson's Notebook. This unique tome is a wonderful companion to anyone who's reading the Sherlock Holmes canon, either for pleasure or for research purposes. We highlight some uses, ponder with Ray over the amount of time Watson spent at 221B Baker Street, and consider the possibilities of a follow-up work. We announce the winner of last episode's Canonical Couplet (a LEGO figure and book are headed their way) and introduce another one. Some material from the bulging vaults at IHOSE headquarters will go to the winner of yet another couplet we share in this episode.

Sherlock Holmes Re-Imagined
“a cascade of children's bricks” [TWIS]    Sherlock Holmes has been given form thanks to artists like Sidney Paget, Frederic Dorr Steele, Howard Elcock, Frank Wiles, and Arthur Twidle. He has sprung to life from the stage and screen through the magic of William Gillette, Eille Norwood, Basil Rathbone, Peter Cushing, Jeremy Brett, and Benedict Cumberbatch. But James Macaluso has made a world where Sherlock Holmes is universally relatable: through the Re-Imagined Sherlock Holmes in LEGO building bricks. His imagination and ingenuity have combined to transform some of Sidney Paget's iconic illustrations into LEGO scenes that are remarkably faithful to the original. How did he do it? Where did he find the pieces? James tells us his story and takes us through his creations which include works inspired by Edward Gorey, other non-Sherlockian stories that he has similarly illustrated, and what we might expect next. We have a straightforward Canonical Couplet this time. You ought to play, because the winner, who'll be randomly chosen from all correct responses, will receive not only a copy of one of James's books, but also a Sherlockian LEGO figure.

Holmes in the Heartland
“an event of extreme importance” [SIGN]    There seems to be an explosion of Sherlock Holmes events of late. And the second outing of Holmes in the Heartland is an excellent entry in that horse race. Rob Nunn, BSI ("Elementary") and Heather Hinson of the Parallel Case of St. Louis join us to talk about this pandemic-delayed event that is taking place July 28–30, 2023 at the Sheraton Westport Plaza Hotel in St. Louis, Missouri. The clever theme for this second entry in the Heartland series is "Arch Enemies," and features a wide array of Sherlockian speakers, vendors, and plenty of activities for all attendees. Listen to this funny and informative interview to hear what to expect and how to participate. This episode's Canonical Couplet is an easy one!

Ken Ludwig's Moriarty
“Look how close they play the game” [3GAB]    Ken Ludwig, BSI ("Jack Stapleton") has seen his plays, Sherlockian and otherwise, grace the stage and win awards since the 1980s. And Ashley Polasek, BSI ("Singlestick") took on the role of Executive Director of the Ken Ludwig Company in 2022. Together, the two join us to talk about Ken's latest Sherlockian play, Moriarty, which premiered at the Cleveland Playhouse in April and May of 2023. But the discussion goes well beyond that to include Ken's other works, how Covid affected the play, how the creative process works, how Ashley's unique background and expertise are perfectly suited to her role, and more. Learn how this dynamic duo play off of each other's strengths to help make everything Ken Ludwig does even more successful. Whether you're a fan of the theater, the creative process, just interested in how a Sherlock Holmes piece comes to life, this is a discussion you won't want to miss. And make sure you listen in for Ken's next Sherlock Holmes play, which he mentions here. The Canonical Couplet is here for a chance to win!

The Baker Street Journal's New Editor
“some stuff that would suit my editor” [VALL]    It's not that often that editor's door at The Baker Street Journal swings open. In fact, the last time it happened was at the turn of the century. But this January, Dan Andriacco, BSI ("St. Saviour’s, Near King’s Cross") was announced as the newest editor of the BSJ. Dan assumes the seat that Steve Rothman, BSI, 2s. ("The Valley of Fear") has aptly occupied for 23 years (hear our interview with Steve in Episode 221), but he is not alone. Dan has brought not only a cadre of people to fill various roles, but he has also brought a lifetime of writing and editing. What are Dan's priorities for the Journal? How will its pages change and possibly appeal to a wider audience? What can we expect in the next issue? And most importantly, what is the Christmas Annual about this year? The answers await.  The Canonical Couplet is here for a chance to win BIG!

Sherlock Holmes: A Father's Time
“Children, my dear boy, children.” [GREE]    Parenting is a mystery to everyone — even to Sherlock Holmes. That's the premise of the books brought to us by author Arye Dworken and illustrator Mike Weinreb. Eleanor and Alistair Holmes are lucky enough to have Sherlock Holmes for a father, but Holmes isn't quite as sure of himself at home as he is at work. This is the recurring theme that Dworken first explored in Sherlock Holmes and the Dinnertime Mystery and examines from another angle in Sherlock Holmes and a Father's Time. Arye Dworken joins us to discuss his enduring love of Sherlock Holmes and how he expresses it in these delightful children's books, examining issues that haunt all parents, from work-life balance to the day-in and day-out routine of meal preparation.  In this discussion about children's literature, we talk about authors we love and methods they've used, together with Dworken's inspiration, his choice of illustrator, and where the series goes next. The Canonical Couplet should be an easy one. Don't miss this chance! If you submit a correct answer and we choose your name randomly chosen, you'll get a copy of one of Arye's books.

“see how beautifully the spring works” [STUD]    The world of Sherlock Holmes enthusiasts is alive and blooming! It is the spring, after all.

Stimulating Medicine
“there is nothing more stimulating” [HOUN]    The latest entry in the BSI Press Professions series is a sequel: Stimulating Medicine: More Nerve and Knowledge: Doctors, Medicine, and the Sherlockian Canon. What makes it even more interesting is that it was developed during the pandemic.   Bob Katz, BSI ("Dr. Ainstree") and Andy Solberg, BSI ("Professor Coram") joined forces for the sixth time, and join us for a sixth time to discuss this volume. More than the people, tools, and places that made up Nerve and Knowledge, this volume delves deeper into the world of medicine and into the human psyche itself. The Canonical Couplet features some erstwhile entries from ChatGPT, as well as the actual puzzle for you to solve: two lines of poetry that summarize one of the 60 stories.

A Dose of Curare
“Well up in belladonna, opium, and poisons generally” [STUD]    There's a large number of Sherlock Holmes stories that involve poisons or toxins. Once you begin to tally them up, you may be surprised, as was our guest in this episode. Marina Stajic, BSI ("Curare"), ASH ("Lady Frances Carfax") has written and presented extensively on Sherlock Holmes and poisons. Her chosen profession makes her the ideal individual to do this: she was a forensic toxicologist. Her Sherlockian scholarship has appeared in The Baker Street Journal, The Sherlock Holmes Journal, The Serpentine Muse, and numerous BSI Press books. Marina joined us to talk about the confluence of her career and her Sherlockian interests, her assessment of Sherlock Holmes's abilities regarding poisons and toxins, and shares the story behind her infamous display of Edwardian undergarments. It looks like last episode's big surprise caught our listeners' attention: we have a winner of the the Canonical Couplet quiz — plus a new puzzle for you to solve. A prize from the IHOSE vaults awaits for the person who identifies the Sherlock Holmes story based on two lines of poetry and whose answer is randomly selected.

Sketches of Scions
“fitting subjects for this series of sketches” [REIG]     One of Burt's and Scott's great interests is music. When it converges with the world of Sherlock Holmes, it becomes all the more interesting. Joshua Harvey lives at that convergence and has some wonderful stories to tell about his history with music, with Sherlock Holmes, and with Patrick Gowers, the composer of the score of the Granada/ITV Sherlock Holmes series. In addition to his work with Gowers' material, Josh threw himself into a Canonical composing fit during the pandemic, writing theme songs for a variety of Sherlockian societies (aka "scions") that met both online and in person.
