    The Haven Horror

    The Haven Horror

    “our visit to The Haven” [LION]     The latest in the BSI Manuscript Series from the BSI Press is The Haven Horror. If that reference isn't immediately recognizable, it's not surprising; it's a phrase taken from “The Adventure of the Retired Colourman,” which comes at the tail end of the Canon. Phil Bergem, BSI ("Birdy Edwards") joins us to talk about this volume in his new role as editor. Phil has long been the annotator/transcriber of manuscripts for the series, but he took on new responsibilities this time around. And it shows, with a wide-ranging variety of essays to inform, entertain, and delight us regarding this little-talked-about story.  A copy of this book awaits for the winner of the next Canonical Couplet quiz. Simply identify the Sherlock Holmes story based on two lines of poetry; if your answer is chosen from among the correct entries, you'll win.

    Sherlock Holmes in the Public Domain

    Sherlock Holmes in the Public Domain

    “enter the sacred domain to-night without fear” [SHOS]     When the #FreeSherlock movement began a decade ago, there were 50 of the original 60 Sherlock Holmes stories in the public domain in the United States. And now, when January 1, 2023 rolls around, "The Veiled Lodger" and "Shoscombe Old Place" will be the final two stories no longer under copyright. To mark this occasion and the final episode of Season 16 of I Hear of Sherlock Everywhere, we invited Leslie Klinger, BSI ("The Abbey Grange"), Betsy Rosenblatt, BSI ("Lucy Ferrier"), and Ashely Polasek, BSI ("Singlestick") back to the show to talk with us about it from the perspective of one who has sued the Conan Doyle Estate, an intellectual property lawyer, and an adaptation studies scholar, respectively. How will this affect creators? And what does it mean for fans? These questions and more are answered as we pick the considerable brains we assembled.  This was originally broadcast as a live video exclusively for our Patreon supporters;  as a replay on our page there. Our latest Canonical Couplet quiz gives you a chance to identify a Sherlock Holmes story based on two lines of poetry; if your correct answer is randomly chosen, you'll win something from the IHOSE vaults.

    The Life and Times of Sherlock Holmes

    The Life and Times of Sherlock Holmes

    “a strange and wild life” [STUD]     How often have you come across a phrase in the Sherlock Holmes stories that you're not familiar with? Or just a general concept, such as the cost of items and what it was like to live on a pension?  Author Liese Sherwood-Fabre discovered a number of questions as she was researching her series of books The Early Casefiles of Sherlock Holmes. So, in gathering her research, she published another series: The Life of Times of Sherlock Holmes. We take a look inside the making of this four-volume series of essays, with a mysterious detour to Russia along the way.  Try your hand at the Canonical Couplet quiz: we give you two lines of poetry, you identify the Sherlock Holmes story; if your correct answer is randomly chosen, you'll win a copy of The Life and Time of Sherlock Holmes. Send your answer to comment @ ihearofsherlock .com by December 29, 2022 at 11:59 a.m. EST. The winner will be chosen at random from among all the correct answers. All listeners are eligible to play. For our supporters, a very special challenge is still open for you — until the end of the year — where you'll have a chance to win six Sherlock Holmes books: The Sherlock Holmes Little Book of Wisdom, Mastermind: How to Think Like Sherlock Holmes, Sherlock Holmes of Baker Street, In and Out of Character, and Conan Doyle.

    My Scientific Methods

    My Scientific Methods

    “duly considered and scientifically handled” [HOUN]   The Baker Street Irregulars Press follows the success of its Professions Series (previous titles covered medicine, the law, the military, and education) continues with My Scientific Methods: Scient in the Sherlockian Canon. The editor, Dana Richards, BSI ("The Priory School") shares with us not only his interest in puzzles and the science behind them, but also the story that led to the creation of this excellent addition to the series. From the history of science in Victorian times, to the question of Sherlock Holmes as a scientist, to a wide variety of sciences and the connection of science and literature, there is much which every reader will find of interest in this volume and in this conversation. If you try your hand at the Canonical Couplet (we give you two lines of poetry, you identify the Sherlock Holmes story), your correct answer could be randomly chosen to win a copy of My Scientific Methods from the BSI Press.

Mrs. Hudson and Mrs. Watson..oh yeah!! 💕

Can NOT wait to hold these novels in my hands!

These two fine women decide to take on cases that Sherlock Holmes (Mrs. Hudson was eavesdropping) has passed on in Michelle Birkby's "The Baker Street Inquiry" series.

Loved the interview!! The author, Michelle Birkby, sounds absolutely delightful! Can't wait to read all her books!

Happy sigh....💕

Sid The Frog ,

It’s great

New listener. Really love it so far.

Cavendish Square ,

The Ultimate Sherlockian Fix

IHOSE is a warm Sherlockian hug. However , it is more than that. You will learn about all things Victorian , from social mores to quirky historical facts that all seem to help me better understand our world today. The funny, informed, intellectual banter between the hosts makes the journey fun and effortless. The considerable preparation and professionalism is evident at every turn. They have just completed their 221 st episode and they are just getting better with each episode. Charlie Blanksteen
