“The date being—?” [CREE]
We all owe a debt of gratitude to the more clever, adventurous, and tireless among us – because this is the profile of the Canonical chronologist. The most famous among them is certain William S. Baring-Gould ("The Gloria Scott"), but he was flanked by other greats such as Bell, Christ, Blakeney, Zeisler, Dakin and more.
Add to that list one of our contemporaries: Vincent Wright. Hailing from Indianapolis, this intrepid researcher and proprietor of Historical Sherlock joins us to tell us why the dating of the Sherlock Holmes stories never gets old. He brings us along on the journey of a true researcher, shares a stumbling block, and posits how the future of Sherlockian chronology may lie in the standard template of a teenage book genre from the early 1980s.
Vincent's speaking engagements are far and wide, and he's always ruminating on a variety of topics, either in private or on his blog. The passion he brings to this hobby is infectious.
