Was ever a man so wrong?
As editor of the Baker Street Journal, it’s my joy to edit many wonderful contributions to the body of Sherlockian scholarship still being produced, as well as side forays into Arthur Conan Doyle and other related topics.
In the recently published Autumn issue, for example, you will find:
· An exploration of how much Sherlock Holmes really knew about the law in The Adventures, written by first-class lawyer and scholar.
· “The Great Moriarty Deception,” for which the world is finally prepared.
· A look at what happened to two characters in “Black Peter” who seem to disappear from the story.
· Proof—maybe—that snakes do drink milk, as in “The Speckled Band.”
· A look at science and Sherlock Holmes, written by a scientist.
The many meanings of guns in “The Gloria Scott.”
(These examples of traditional scholarship are in addition to an essay about a once-popular silent movie about Sherlock wannabe, a survey of Holmes parodies and pastiches, and examination of when each canonical tale of written.)
