“Do you feel
a creeping, shrinking sensation” [CHAS]
Holmes and Watson turn to burglary in "The Adventure of Charles
Augustus Milverton," seeking to thwart the designs of "the worst
man in London." The story holds a unique place in the Canon for its
distinctive villain and the Great Detective's "strong natural turn"
for criminal enterprise, as well as the host of thorny ethical
questions raised by his actions.
There's so much to pick apart from this, one of the shortest
in the Sherlock Holmes canon. So when Constantine Rossakis, BSI
("St. Bartholomew's Hospital") and Daniel Stashower ("Thurston")
took on the job of editing The
Worst Man in London
, the latest in the BSI Press
Manuscript Series, it was an embarrassment of riches.
We talked to them about finding an editorial voice and the
history of the manuscript, feelings when holding original Conan
Doyle materials, the Frederic Dorr Steele and Sidney Paget
illustrations, and more.
