 Episode 178: The Adventure of the Peculiar Protocols | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: Unknown

“this peculiar incident” [SIGN]  He was almost single-handedly responsible for the revival of interest of Sherlock Holmes in the 1970s with The Seven Percent Solution. Now, 45 years after his first novel about Sherlock Holmes, Nicholas Meyer, BSI ("A Fine Morocco Case") returns with The Adventure of the Peculiar Protocols. The case takes us to January of 1905, when Holmes and Watson are summoned by Mycroft to undertake a clandestine investigation. A British Secret Service agent was found floating in the Thames with a manuscript smuggled into England that cost her life. The pages are supposedly the minutes of the meeting of a secret group intent on taking over the world: The Protocols of the Elders of Zion. Holmes and Watson are sent to determine whether it's a hoax, what the perpetrators are trying to accomplish, and why they want to keep their work out of the hands of the Secret Service. What's different this time around, some 19 years after his previous Holmes novel? Where did he get his inspiration? We talk to Nick about these things, plus his view of storytelling. To him, it has to be in service of something larger than a gimmick, and paraphrasing Victor Hugo, he said, "There's nothing so irresistible as an idea whose time has come."

 Episode 177: Being Sherlock | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: Unknown

“being out of the ordinary” [LADY]  Since Sir Arthur Conan Doyle first began the tradition in 1927, Sherlockians worldwide have debated which are the "best" Sherlock Holmes stories. There have been polls, surveys and lists. Articles, books, and debates. The core list is usually consistent, with a few variables along the way. Ashley Polasek—a familiar name to listeners of I Hear of Sherlock Everywhere—took up the challenges as only she could: considering the stories and their reinterpretation over the years. The character of Sherlock Holmes has evolved over the years in multiple media, and as someone with a doctorate in adaptation studies, Ashley was in the perfect position to write Being Sherlock: A Sherlockian's Stroll Through the Best Sherlock Holmes Stories (Lyons Press). She joins us to share the thinking that led to her curated list of ten short stories and one novel from the Canon. And she has a suggestion for a future potential I Hear of Sherlock Everywhere gift.

 Episode 176: The Man Who Would Be Sherlock | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: Unknown

“it would be a great pleasure” [SIGN]  Acclaimed biographer Christopher Sandford joins us to discuss his book The Man Who Would Be Sherlock: The Real-Life Adventures of Arthur Conan Doyle. But this isn't a biography. As Sandford explained, there was a perpetual itch that Conan Doyle had to scratch, and his writing wasn't enough to satisfy it. How did his lifelong crusade pan out? Why did he embrace spiritualism so fervently when he also valued the scientific method? How did he feel about the dissolution of his friendship with Harry Houdini? We discover the answers to these questions and more in our conversation with Chris, as well as the gothic setting of his own childhood, which was eerily similar to Conan Doyle's—and, how a cricket match led to him writing Mick Jagger's biography.

 Episode 175: Building an Archive | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: Unknown

“furnished lodgings close to a library” [3STU]  When you have a world-class collection, it makes sense for a world-class institution to house it. And not just any such institution (as there are many), but one that can meet the needs of the depositor. In this case, we're talking about the BSI Archives and the Lilly Library—two venerable institutions. From November 8-10, 2019, the BSI is hosting at conference at the University of Indiana, where the Lilly Library resides. Titled "Building an Archive: A Celebration of the Arrival of the BSI Archive at the Lilly Library," it will feature scholars, collectors, and enthusiasts alike and will encompass two and a half days dedicated to the collection. The centerpiece of the event will be a special exhibition, "The History of the BSI Through 221 Objects," at the Lilly Library. How did the curators and trustees choose these items? What are they? and what will happen during the symposium? Guest Glen Miranker, BSI ("The Origin of Tree Worship") and Ross Davies, BSI ("The Temple") join us to give us a behind-the-scenes peek at this exciting event. Be sure to register today!

 Episode 174: Sherlock Holmes and Doctor Was Not | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: Unknown

“he was not the man that they had known” [CREE]  Christopher Sequeira is a familiar name among those who enjoy speculative fiction. That's the intersection of horror, fantasy, science fiction, and super hero. And that's where his connection with Sherlock Holmes resides as well. Where did Chris first get inspired in this direction? In the latest book he has edited, Sherlock Holmes and Doctor Was Not, Chris assembled authors to write short stories that share this premise: what if Sherlock Holmes teamed up with doctors other than John H. Watson? If there are parallel universes out there, then there's an infinite number of possibilities. It's a unique angle, and Chris's own story sets it up with great gusto.  Join us for this discussion of what's possible and hear about Chris's approach to his craft, as well as some fascinating stories about Harlan Ellison and Fu Manchu.

 Episode 173: Another Case of Identity | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: Unknown

“Male costume is nothing new to me” [SCAN]  It isn't every day you run into someone who crashed an invitation-only event 45 years ago. When you add to the mix that the event was all-male and the interloper was a female—well, now we have the beginning of a good story. For years it remained a mystery, which is just fine with Rosemary Herbert, our guest for this episode and the very same person who pulled off the caper. It's the perfect genre, as Rosemary has been involved in the world of mystery fiction for nearly her entire life. Her literary connections are broad and deep (as links below to books she's edited and written will attest), and she has cultivated connections in the world of Sherlock Holmes that span from Julian Symons to Dan Posnansky, BSI and more. Join us as we delve into this fascinating world with Rosemary. We're pleased to have Mattias Boström with us again for another "As We Go to Press." But we need to take a one-episode hiatus from the Canonical Couplet quiz—which means you have an extra two weeks to listen to Episode 172 and give that a shot for a prize.

 Episode 172: Watson Does Not Lie / Doyle's Rotary Coffin | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: Unknown

“What do you want with the coffin?” [LADY]  As a rule, Sherlockians and Holmesians are a welcoming bunch. But occasionally you'll see arguments spring up about why a certain book, film, television show, play, or other related project is rubbish. Well, that's completely subjective, isn't it? The guiding light of the Sherlockian movement since its earliest days is rooted in having fun. And who is one person to tell another person how they can have fun? Such is the motivating factor behind Doyle's Rotary Coffin, a concept of Paul Thomas Miller. Paul joined us to discuss his quest to acknowledge that anyone's Holmes has something to offer. And to preview his upcoming project: a chronology of the Sherlock Holmes stories titled Watson Does Not Lie (available soon from Wildside Press). Paul set out to create a chronology that didn't rely on excuses like Watson's poor handwriting, a slip of the memory, or outright fabrications. And he's created quite a convincing argument. We also hear stories from Paul's native Portsmouth, U.K., where he has at his fingertips the Arthur Conan Doyle Collection Lancelyn Green Bequest at the Portsmouth Library. We have to take a break from Mattias Boström's "As We Go to Press," as he's working on a scoop for the next episode. We've found a replacement segment for your enjoyment.

 Episode 171: John Bennett Shaw | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: Unknown

“all the enthusiasm of a man fresh from the fogs of Baker Street.” [COPP]  There are a handful of names in the pantheon of Sherlockians that are legendary: Morley. Bell. Smith. Starrett. Baring-Gould. And Shaw. For as much as John Bennett Shaw influenced modern-day Sherlockians, we haven't spent much time discussing him or his impact. Fortunately, Jim Hawkins does just that. And he does it in a most wonderful way, both in this interview and more comprehensively on the website JohnBennettShaw.com that he created. Explore with us how Jim first became aware of Shaw and how he managed to find his way into that legendary library in Santa Fe, New Mexico. It's a journey that includes a group as eclectic and wonderful as the Norman Nerudas, the oil fields of Oklahoma, a funeral home, and much more. We also have another installment of "As We Go to Press" with Mattias Boström, co-editor of the Sherlock Holmes and Conan Doyle in the Newspapers series.

 Episode 170: Three Authors in Search of a Character | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: Unknown

“these characters convey a message” [DANC]  It isn't every day that one has an opportunity to chat with someone who owns an intimate piece of clothing that belonged to "a certain gracious lady." Barbara Rusch, BSI ("The Mazarin Stone") is a collector of Victoriana and ephemera, and more importantly is the author of the play "The Crossing: or Three Authors in Search of a Character." In a barren antechamber three titans meet unexpectedly. Oscar Wilde, Edgar Allan Poe, and Harry Houdini are not pleased to be spending the afterlife in each other's company, and a clash of egos is the result. A mystery interloper only seems to add fuel to the fire. Ultimately, the connection is revealed: they all have unresolved issues with Arthur Conan Doyle, and their mission at last becomes clear. The resolution is only achieved with the assistance of a surprising yet familiar figure. Barbara takes us on this fascinating journey to the afterlife and talks about her inspirations along the way. We also have another installment of "As We Go to Press" with Mattias Boström, co-editor of the Sherlock Holmes and Conan Doyle in the Newspapers series.

 Episode 169: Studies in Starrett | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: Unknown

“His name is Vincent” [REDH]  We last spoke with Ray Betzner, BSI ("The Agony Column") five years ago (on Episode 61), where he was joined by Susan Rice, BSI ("Beeswing"). Ray had just launched his blog, Studies in Starrett, which takes a look at the works, connections, and life of Vincent Starrett, BSI ("A Study in Scarlet").

 Episode 168: A Holmes By Any Other Name | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: Unknown

“the name is familiar to me” [SPEC]  The parodies of Sherlock Holmes began almost as soon as the short stories began appearing in The Strand Magazine. And parody plots required parody names. Bill Mason, BSI ("White Mason") began keeping a log of the silly iterations and manifestations of Sherlock Holmes's name over the years and has turned it into a book, A Holmes By Any Other Name. But more than a cataloging of names, it's a story about how Sherlock Holmes was been inextricably woven into the fabric of popular culture over a century or more. We also touch on Pursuing Sherlock Holmes, Bill's other Sherlockian book — evidence of his polymath personality — as well as the Fresh Rashers, a rather intriguing and fun group. We also have another installment of "As We Go to Press" with Mattias Boström, co-editor of the Sherlock Holmes and Conan Doyle in the Newspapers series. Try your hand at the latest Canonical Couplet quiz, see if you can figure out the story we're referring to, and you might win a prize. Listen closely because we have a bonus contest embedded within Bill's interview as well. Information on sponsors, links, and notes available below. Please do consider becoming a Patron of the Arts.

 Episode 167: The Art of Chris Schweizer | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: Unknown

“He has an extraordinary faculty for figures” [GREE]  Chris Schweizer is a Sherlockian of multi-media origins. So it stands to reason that his depictions of the characters take on a multitude of aspects. In our conversation with this Sherlockian and Eisner-nominated cartoonist, we discover that he'd like to illustrate as many characters in the Sherlock Holmes stories as possible. And his work shows his close reading of the texts and his eye for detail, combined with his artistic creativity. Chris explains his process with us, and shows the work that he's done digitally, on paper, and now in the form of collectible wooden figures of Sherlock Holmes characters. His project is now running on Kickstarter for all to see and support. Pick the 4-pack that you prefer! We also have another installment of "As We Go to Press" with Mattias Boström, co-editor of the Sherlock Holmes and Conan Doyle in the Newspapers series.

 Episode 166: Dark Places, Wicked Companions and Strange Experiences | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: Unknown

“a Norwegian named Sigerson” [EMPT]  Every three years, the Norwegian Explorers of Minnesota host a conference. It's been their practice since 1995, and they've had some well-attended and well-regarded programs in that time. Julie McKuras, BSI ("The Duchess of Devonshire") and Gary Thaden are co-chairs of the latest conference, Dark Places, Wicked Companions, and Strange Experiences, which will be held August 8-11, 2019 in Minneapolis. We spoke with Julie and Gary about the history of the conference, the Norwegian Explorers, the Sherlock Holmes Collections at the University of Minnesota Libraries, and more. Their description of past events and of plans for this year's festivities makes it sound like a very enticing conference, indeed! Don't miss out on your chance to register. More information about the Explorers and the conference can be found in the Links section below.

 Episode 165: The True Adventures of Sherlock Holmes | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: Unknown

“give me a true account of all that happened” [ABBE]  We're fairly comfortable in taking Dr. Watson at his word. That is, we trust that what Watson tells us is the true eyewitness account of his time with Sherlock Holmes. But what if that wasn't the case? What if Watson's writings were actually a set of highly polished tales that masked the true drama behind the scenes at 221B Baker Street? That's the premise of The True Adventures of Sherlock Holmes by Terence Faherty, BSI ("Sir Charles Baskerville") from Wessex Press. Terence joined us to talk about the art of writing, how he approaches mysteries, and how P.G. Wodehouse was one of the inspirations behind his book.

 Episode 164: Sherlock Holmes, Popeye and More | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: Unknown

“clad in a rude sailor dress with a pea-jacket,” [SIGN]  The town of Chester, Illinois contains a few interesting items. One is the Chester Baskerville Society. Another is the Popeye and Friends Character Trail. And the common bond between both of them is Mike McClure, BSI ("Stimson & Co."), a member of the Baker Street Irregulars. Mike tells us about his involvement with Sherlock Holmes, about the early days of Elzie C. ("E.C.") Segar, creator of Popeye, and how the town of Chester and Sherlock Holmes are irrevocably connected with him. That led Mike to another mission: commissioning the first-ever permanent Sherlock Holmes statue in the United States. We also learn about a new game called Sherlock Holmes and the Baker Street Irregulars, which Mike is creating. Both the game and the statue hold an opportunity for Sherlockians and Sherlock Holmes societies to get involved and have themselves or their loved ones honored. We also have another installment of "As We Go to Press" with Mattias Boström, co-editor of the Sherlock Holmes and Conan Doyle in the Newspapers series.
