"tucked like an umbrella underneath his arm" [BLAC]
The BSI Press is busy again this year, adding another volume to the Manuscript Series. In this instance, the book is Deadly Harpoon, the manuscript of "The Adventure of Black Peter," with associated articles.
We spoke with the editor of this volume, Glen Miranker, BSI ("The Origin of Tree Worship"), who needs no introduction to regular listeners. In speaking with Glen, we discovered how broad and brooding this story is, and how Glen chose contributors. Add to that some talk about the latest restored silent film of Sherlock Holmes, cryptography, and three other manuscripts in Glen's possession, and we've got a full show.
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. We also finally got around to surfacing some of our listener voicemail, and of course the latest Canonical Couplet. See if you can figure out the story we're referring to, and you might win a prize.
