    A Curious Collector of Baker Street

    A Curious Collector of Baker Street

    “a connoisseur and collector” [ILLU]  Chuck Kovacic is an artist of many dimensions. His paintings are but one of these dimensions — universally visible to those who can see his work in art galleries, or places like McSorley's Old Ale House in New York City. But Chuck's flair for Sherlockian scholarship and collecting has taken him in a rare direction: he has a recreation of Sherlock Holmes's 221B Baker Street sitting room built in his house in California. And it contains more than reproductions or Canonical items; Chuck has taken his level of collecting to a far deeper and studious level. Tune in as he shares his "collection mania in its most acute form" [ILLU] with us.   We're pleased to announce the return of the Canonical Couplet! We'll be accepting responses through January 29, 2022 at 11:59 a.m. EST. The winner will receive an item from the IHOSE vaults. NOTE: we have bonus content for our Patreon supporters: an outtake clip and more of Chuck's Sherlockian artwork, including his portrait of Christopher Morley.

    A Quiet Air of Mastery

    A Quiet Air of Mastery

    “put forward with such a quiet air of mastery” [STOC]  As regular readers and listeners know, Michael F. Whelan, BSI ("Wiggins") passed away in October of 2021. His contribution to the Sherlockian game was more than any one person could adequately describe. To honor his memory, we gathered a number of Baker Street Irregulars to remember Mike beyond his Sherlockian self — people who knew him well and could comment on his interests, his personality, and his character. These were: Peter Blau, Ross Davies, Steven Doyle, Les Klinger, Hartley Nathan, Otto Penzler, and Steve Rothman. We hope you can appreciate the man Mike Whelan was, what he did for the Sherlockian community, and the kind of leadership he represented. There is no Canonical Couplet quiz in this episode; the lines are still open for answers from the previous episode, which are due by January 14, 2022 at 11:59 a.m. EDT.   Sponsors  is the premier publisher of books about Sherlock Holmes and Arthur Conan Doyle, including .  has launched the , beginning with an exclusive interview with Lee Child.     Would you care to advertise with us?

    Sherlock Holmes' Little Book of Wisdom

    Sherlock Holmes' Little Book of Wisdom

    “it is better to learn wisdom late than never to learn it at all” [TWIS] The game—of life—is afoot! In our endless pursuit of happiness, is it possible that we have overlooked some crucial clue? Sherlock Holmes says "Yes." As Glenn Dakin kept reading the Sherlock Holmes stories, he discovered more wisdom buried in those pages than many modern-day philosophers. He extracted some examples to serve as the basis for his book, . Glenn's book has ten chapters with lessons from the stories, paired with his wonderfully witty and whimsical illustrations to make this journey of wisdom one of fun. And, if you're any kind of curious Sherlockian, you'll want to know about the connection to D. Martin Dakin. The answer awaits within...   Please be sure to play our Canonical Couplet quiz: the winner will receive a copy of Observations by Gaslight.

    Observations by Gaslight

    Observations by Gaslight

    “draw inferences from our observations” [CARD]  Lyndsay Faye, BSI ("Kitty Winter") has a knack for capturing the voice of John H. Watson in the style of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. But in her latest Sherlock Holmes book, she treats us to more than just one voice. (Mysterious Press, 2021) takes a vastly different approach. In this series of long-ish stories, Faye treats us to a series of epistolary adventures, as seen through the eyes of Inspector Lestrade, Irene Adler, Wiggins, Inspector Bradstreet, Mrs. Hudson, and none other than Lomax the sub-librarian. It's a fresh approach with six very distinct voices that earned a starred review from , who lauded the "nuance, wit, and clever plotting" of the stories. You'll want to tune in to this chat with Edgar finalist Lyndsay Faye. Observations by Gaslight goes on sale to the public on December 7, 2021 and that evening.

    The Return of the Pharaoh

    The Return of the Pharaoh

    “those sacred writings, drawn in Egyptian letters” [STUD]  If there is one author to whom we owe the rise in popularity of Sherlock Holmes in the mid-1970s, it is Nicholas Meyer, BSI ("A Fine Morocco Case"). It was his novel The Seven Per-Cent Solution (which spent 40 weeks on the New York Times Bestseller List) and his screenplay for the film version of the book that put Sherlock Holmes back in mainstream consciousness. Meyer and Holmes have returned with , another Holmes adventure tale that takes us to Egypt in 1910 amid the Egyptomania craze that was running high in Europe at the time.  As The Return takes Holmes and Watson on a journey to North Africa, our conversation with Nick takes us on a literary journey spanning 45 years as he looks at how his writing has (or hasn't) changed over that time. We also point out the timely nature of his topics, homages to Conan Doyle, and even get nods to Homer, Edgar Allan Poe, and Agatha Christie. It's an interview you won't want to miss with the master of latter-day Sherlock Holmes novels.   Please be sure to play our Canonical Couplet quiz: the winner will receive a copy of The Return of the Pharaoh.

    Sherlock Holmes in 221 Objects

    Sherlock Holmes in 221 Objects

    “there were several objects in the room which called for special attention” [BLAC]  Collecting must be in the air: following our last episode with Rebecca Romney talking about Sherlockian collecting, we have with us the legendary Sherlockian collector Glen Miranker, BSI ("The Origin of Tree Worship"), who is staging an exhibit in conjunction with the Grolier Club in January. The exhibition is "Sherlock Holmes in 221 Objects" and will run from January 12 - April 16, 2022. Glen and his wife Cathy Miranker curated the 221 objects, selected from Glen's impressive trove of over 8,000 items. You'll hear how he came to acquire some of those objects, how he (or rather his erstwhile conscience) decides when to add an item to the collection, what it's like to prepare his most precious items to be loaned to an institution, and what to expect at the exhibition. [Note: we did encounter a bit of sound disruption in during the recording; consider it akin to the static you might hear in old time radio shows.] To honor Glen's appearance, our Canonical Couplet will get the winner a collectible from the IHOSE vaults. Answers are due by November 14, 2021 at 11:59 a.m. EDT.   : If you become a patron of the show, you'll be able to see some additional photos from the exhibition, as well as a listing of some of the items. .   Please do consider becoming a .

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
