"His name is Vincent" [REDH]
We last spoke with Ray Betzner, BSI ("The Agony Column") five years ago (on Episode 61), where he was joined by Susan Rice, BSI ("Beeswing"). Ray had just launched his blog, Studies in Starrett, which takes a look at the works, connections, and life of Vincent Starrett, BSI ("A Study in Scarlet").
Now that the site has reached its five-year mark, we interviewed Ray about what he's seen and written over that half-decade and surprises along the way. It's an insightful look at the passion and mindset of a collector and a journey of one who delights in sharing his knowledge and acquisitions with others.
We also have another installment of "As We Go to Press" with Mattias Boström, co-editor of the Sherlock Holmes and Conan Doyle in the Newspapers series. Try your hand at the latest Canonical Couplet quiz, see if you can figure out the story we're referring to, and you might win a prize.
