“the little man was much more favourable to me” [REDH]  In their 86-year history the Baker Street Irregulars have had six leaders. Of them, Julian Wolff, BSI ("The Red-Headed League) seems to have been the least likely.   As Malvolio says in Twelfth Night, "Some are born great, some achieve greatness, and some have greatness thrust upon 'em." Julian was in the third category, as there was a leadership vacuum followi...

“enterprise and originality” [COPP] 

When Steve and Sharon Emecz founded MX Publishing, it had a very different purpose than it does today. And while most Sherlockians know the outfit for its many pastiches (particularly through the MX Collection edited by David Marcum), there's much more going on here than one might realize.

Steve Emecz joined us to talk about what drives him and how MX has grown to become a wide-ranging publ...

“Do you feel a creeping, shrinking sensation” [CHAS] 

Holmes and Watson turn to burglary in "The Adventure of Charles Augustus Milverton," seeking to thwart the designs of "the worst man in London." The story holds a unique place in the Canon for its distinctive villain and the Great Detective's "strong natural turn" for criminal enterprise, as well as the host of thorny ethical questions raised by his a...

“Have you heard nothing of doings hereabouts?” [VALL] 

Sir Arthur Conan Doyle was a complex man. We know him mostly for his Sherlock Holmes stories, but he was so much more.

His interest in spiritualism began far before his son's death, for example. And his storytelling abilities span historical and legal topics, as well as drama and poetry in addition to fiction.

The Doings of Doyle podcast by Paul Chapman and Mark Jones explo...

“the apple of his eye” [SILV] 

"Art in the blood is liable to take the strangest of shapes," Sherlock Holmes told us in "The Greek Interpreter." And in the case of Regina Stinson, it takes a number of fascinating shapes.

Regina Stinson, BSI ("A Little Ribston-Pippin") is a longtime Sherlockian who was so determined to meet with other like-minded people that she established her own society. She takes us on th...

“he sat musing for a little while” [CREE] 

We muse about a great many topics, both here and on our companion show, Trifles. So it seemed only perfect to bring on Sheldon Goldfarb, author of Sherlockian Musings: Thoughts on the Sherlock Holmes Stories.

We certainly had our expectations met, but they were also exceeded, as Sheldon brought in his knowledge of William Makepeace Thackeray, shared some broad themes that reverberate throu...

“discussion of those questions which lie between us” [FINA] 

In an effort to cheer the spirits of the home-bound and continue reveling in Sherlock Holmes, we decided a show with just Burt and Scott discussing current affairs was, in addition to brandy, just what the good doctor ordered.

Given that all Sherlockian gatherings this spring have been cancelled or postponed, we used this as a jumping-off point for imagining what kind of ...

“your wide experience of turf matters” [SILV] 

The sport of kings horse racing is part of the Sherlock Holmes lore. It's also part of a tradition in Sherlockian events going back some 70 years.

The BSI Press has issued a new book, Upon the Turf, that is a comprehensive look at horse racing in the Canon, Victorian England, and the Baker Street Irregulars, as well as associated topics such as gambling, drugs (quite an associated ...

"pursuing some laborious researches" [3STU]

The name William S. Baring-Gould is one of a hallowed few in the pantheon of Sherlockian scholars. He is one of the handful of chronologists who has attempted to put the stories in a particular order, using a number of research techniques.

He also wrote the first unofficial "biography" of Sherlock Holmes with his Sherlock Holmes of Baker Street: A Life of the World's F...

“a certain quiet primness of dress” [MUSG] 

For the last 26 years, Beau Ties Ltd. has been a Vermont-based U.S. manufacturer of bow ties. And sometimes we see glimpses of Sherlock Holmes coming through.

Because we're bow tie fanciers and astute observers of things, we decided to chat with an executive from Beau Ties Ltd. to understand their thinking. So we sat down with Cy Tall, President of Beau Ties Ltd.

From her choice of co...

“he returned refreshed to his monograph upon the Polyphonic Motets of Lassus” [BRUC] 

Perhaps you recall Watson mentioning in the midst of "The Bruce-Partington Plans" that Sherlock Holmes took his mind off of things while waiting for crucial information by losing himself "in a monograph which he had undertaken upon the Polyphonic Motets of Lassus."

Perhaps you've wondered who Lassus was. That would be Orlande d...

We took the show on the road!

Burt and Scott ventured to Bloomington, Indiana for the Baker Street Irregulars' conference "Building an Archive" at the Lilly Library at Indiana University. It was an event filled with conversations and exhibitions that delighted all, collectors or not.

The event was the celebration of the BSI Archive officially opening at the Lilly. It featured a walk-through ...

“Your conversation is most entertaining” [SPEC] 

Usually things run like clockwork around these parts. But with both Burt and Scott on the road for work, and trying to coordinate daytime, evening, and even weekend schedules with various guests, sometimes it doesn't work out.

So, we're returning to our roots and just having a chat with each other. It's a wide-ranging conversation that takes us from the 92nd Street Y with...

“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 cl...
