    Anticipations in A Sherlock Holmes Commentary

    Anticipations in A Sherlock Holmes Commentary

    “a turn which neither of us could have anticipated” [REIG]   D. Martin Dakin’s A Sherlock Holmes Commentary is one of the more important contributions to Sherlockian scholarship. In it, he discussed the entirety of the Sherlock Holmes canon, plus two apocryphal tales. But Dakin also acknowledged that he was probably missing the discovery of scholarship that had happened prior to his time. Bruce Harris, in his Anticipations in D. Martin Dakin’s A Sherlock Holmes Commentary, digs deeper into the older scholarship and has found earlier commentary on the points that interested Dakin. This is a fine companion volume to a cornerstone of Sherlockian scholarship. And Bruce's journey there is a fascinating one. The Canonical Couplet follows the interview: we give you two lines of poetry, and you need to identify which Sherlock Holmes story they represent. The winner will receive a copy of Bruce's book.

    Sherlock Holmes in Comics

    Sherlock Holmes in Comics

    "this comic interlude" [3GAB] Sherlock Holmes has appeared in comic strips for nearly a century and in comic books for almost as long. And the comics industry is a multi-billion dollar enterprise, having spawned movies, television shows, and large-scale conventions. So isn't it time that someone chronicled Sherlock Holmes's appearance in comics? Johanna Draper Carlson has done just that with her new site Sherlock Holmes in Comics. We chat with her about her early Sherlock Holmes influence (a surprisingly advanced one for a beginner), her work experience with DC Comics, her legacy in writing about comics for the last quarter century, and more. The Canonical Couplet follows the interview: we give you two lines of poetry, and you need to identify which Sherlock Holmes story they represent. The winner will receive an old Sherlock Holmes comic book. Send your answer to comment @ ihearofsherlock .com by May 14, 2022 at 11:59 a.m. EST.

    Referring to My Notes

    Referring to My Notes

    “on referring to my notes” [REIG] Long-time students of Sherlock Holmes might think that Guy Warrack covered all there was to say in his 1947 classic Sherlock Holmes and Music. But longtime listeners of I Hear of Sherlock Everywhere know that there’s always something more to be discovered or said. Alexander Katz, BSI (“Sarasate”) and Karen Wilson, BSI (“Bartholomew Wilson”) have edited the latest volume in the BSI Press Professions series that focuses on music. Called Referring to My Notes: Music and the Sherlockian Canon, the volume covers everything from Holmes’s own violin to Irene Adler, music in the time of Sherlock Holmes, music inspired by Sherlock Holmes, and more.   Full show notes:  Patreon:  Thank you to our sponsors  and .

    A Celebration of Sherlock Holmes

    A Celebration of Sherlock Holmes

    “your celebrated friend, Mr. Sherlock Holmes” [NAVA]   A free event at DePaul University is on our radar, and it should be on yours too. Paul Booth, a professor of digital communication and media art, developed the DePaul Pop Culture Conference over the last decade, and this year's topic is A Celebration of Sherlock Holmes. Professor Booth joined us to discuss how different elements of society converge to form popular culture, and how Sherlock Holmes, by many measures, is the perfect representation of that. Listen in to discover the history of this fascinating conference and hear what's planned at the May 7 gathering. The Canonical Couplet follows the interview: we give you two lines of poetry, and you need to identify which Sherlock Holmes story they represent. The winner will get some archival material from the IHOSE vaults. Send your answer to comment @ ihearofsherlock .com by April 14, 2022 at 11:59 a.m. EST.

    The Legion of Zoom

    The Legion of Zoom

    “the Order of the Legion” [GOLD]  What's an active Sherlockian to do when the world goes into lockdown mode and all regular Sherlockian society meetings are canceled? Pretty much what most of us did in the first two years of the pandemic: go virtual! When Covid caused us to shelter in place, Sherlockians—a gregarious type of people—weren't about to be kept away from each other. So many societies began to have virtual meetings: video calls (invariably hosted on Zoom). Rich Krisciunas, Steve Mason, and Edith Pounden were among scores of other Sherlockians who flitted from society to society, making use of technology to allow them to go places and see people they wouldn't have otherwise seen. They are three of the founding officers of the Legion of Zoom: the newest Sherlockian society for people who attend a certain number of virtual meetings. What is the Legion all about, how can you join, and where can you find out about more online Sherlockian group meetings? The answers await in this episode of I Hear of Sherlock Everywhere. The Canonical Couplet follows the interview: we give you two lines of poetry, and you need to identify which Sherlock Holmes story they represent. The winner will get some archival material from the IHOSE vaults. Send your answer to comment @ ihearofsherlock .com by March 29, 2022 at 11:59 a.m. EST.

    The Hero with a Thousand Faces

    The Hero with a Thousand Faces

    “the feted hero” [VALL]   David MacGregor's Sherlock Holmes: The Hero With a Thousand Faces takes on the task of explaining the continued popularity of Arthur Conan Doyle's famous detective over the course of three centuries.  In plays, films, TV shows, and other media, one generation after another has reimagined Holmes as a romantic hero, action hero, gentleman hero, recovering drug addict, weeping social crusader, high-functioning sociopath, and so on. In essence, Sherlock Holmes has become the blank slate upon which we write the heroic formula that best suits our time and place. David joined us to discuss the inspiration for this ambitious work, plus the debut of his latest play, Sherlock Holmes and the Ghost Machine, featuring Nikola Tesla and Thomas Edison. He has made a generous offer to listeners of I Hear of Sherlock Everywhere who would like to see the play. The Canonical Couplet follows the interview: two lines of poetry, and you need to identify which Sherlock Holmes story they represent. The winner receives one of David's books (your choice!).

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
