"he braced himself to tell his story" [BERY] 

 

It's always a treat to have guests on our show when we air interviews. But two interviews in a single show? It just isn't done!

Until now, that is.

We were pleased to see Lynsday Faye, BSI ("Kitty Winter") at an event at Otto Penzler's Mysterious Bookshop, launching her newest book The Whole Art of Detection. We managed to take her gently by the elbow and lead her away from her admiring fans to have a few words. Those words included "Watson," "Doyle," "voice," and many others. You'll enjoy the way they're strung together.

And at a separate event at the Rosenbach Library, we met Ed Pettit, the new manager of public programs for the institution. He gave us a rundown of the latest exhibit, "Clever Criminals and Daring Detectives."

"have even contributed to the literature of the subject" [REDH] 

We know that the field of writings about Sherlock Holmes has been plowed thoroughly for over 100 years. In fact, it began as far back as 1902, according to some research, being thrust into the limelight with the Oxford lectures of Fr. Ronald Knox.

Publications like the Baker Street Journal and the Sherlock Holmes Journal have been cranking out their issues multiple times a year since the mid-20th century, and other regular periodicals as well as hundreds upon hundreds of books have dedicated themselves to the study of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's works about Dr. Watson and Sherlock Holmes.

Does it show any sign of abating? What can we learn about the next wave of our hobby, based on looking at the past? We look at some of the cornerstones and collected works to give a sense as to what we can expect from Sherlockian scholars of the 21st century.
