    Moriarty: The Devil's Game

    ‚ÄúNow, then, listen to this‚ÄĚ [SIGN]¬† Earlier this month, Audible and Treefort Media released a ten-part podcast,¬†Moriarty: The Devil‚Äôs Game, written by Charles Kindinger and starring Dominic Monaghan, Billy Boyd, Phil Lamarr, Adam Godley, and Lindsay Whisler, with a special appearance by Curtis Armstrong. The story takes what we know from the traditional Holmes-Moriarty archrivalry and turns it on its head, getting us to familiar territory by taking a¬†very¬†different route indeed. Charles Kindinger joined us for an interview to talk about the inner workings of this Audible Original production, what inspired him to write it, and how he managed to tread the fine line of not alienating traditional Holmes fans while presenting a new theory.

    The Finest Assorted Collection

    The Finest Assorted Collection

    ‚ÄúMaybe you collect yourself‚ÄĚ [EMPT]¬†¬† Many Sherlockians are collectors. Most of those collect books or related written material. But collectors are an interesting breed, as widely varied as the general population.

In essays written by 27 Sherlockians, they take us on a journey of collecting that highlights the eccentricities of the collections and collectors alike. It's a book that's all about passion, as our interview makes abundantly clear.

    ‚Äúthe very foundations of revealed religion‚ÄĚ [GOLD]¬†¬† Thanks to two decades of digital expansion, you can now find fandoms pretty much everywhere across the internet. And you can find a fandom for just about anything.

    Baker Street Inquiries

    Baker Street Inquiries

    "How did you word your inquiries?" [STUD] Sherlock Holmes has lived a rich life beyond the 60 stories written by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. A much fuller life, in fact. When Michelle Birkby chose to write about the world of Sherlock Holmes, she took a different approach: what if, she wondered, we were to experience Victorian London through the eyes of two very capable women ‚ÄĒ two women deeply connected with Holmes and Watson. And that is how the Baker Street Inquiry series began: through the eyes of Mrs. Hudson and Mrs. Watson. Enter a cavalcade of favorite (and in many cases, lesser-known) characters in¬†All Roads Lead to Whitechapel, followed by¬†No One Notices the Boys¬†(Felony & Mayhem Press). Together, we have a new and different look at Sherlock Holmes, Dr. Watson, and Victorian women. Where will it head next in the series? Well,¬† The¬†Canonical Couplet¬†gives you a chance to test your creativity and knowledge with ours. If you properly guess the story we're referring to, you'll have a chance to win one of Michelle's books. Send your answer to comment @ ihearofsherlock .com by June 14, 2022 at 11:59 a.m. EST.

    Anticipations in A Sherlock Holmes Commentary

    Anticipations in A Sherlock Holmes Commentary

    ‚Äúa turn which neither of us could have anticipated‚ÄĚ [REIG]¬†¬† D. Martin Dakin‚Äôs¬†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‚Äôs 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.

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

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....ūüíē

Sid The Frog ,

New listener. Really love it so far.

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
