|Publisher Steven Doyle with Winter issue; cover by Ann Brauer Andriacco
- The writers have been a dream to deal with, even the ones whose submissions I had to edit significantly or not use at all.
- Comments from readers indicate they’ve noticed the variety of offerings in each issue, which has been one of my goals.
- My often-stated
observation that the BSJ is published by the Baker Street
Irregulars but not just for the Baker Street Irregulars is demonstrably
true: Many of the writers and readers are not BSIs. The Journal has always served the entire Sherlockian community.
- The availability
of good material has not been a problem. After all these years, there are still
new things to say about Sherlock Holmes, Arthur Conan Doyle, the Canon, and the
world they created.
- Being editor of
the BSJ can be very time-consuming but is rewarding in equal measure.
- And even after
a year, I still occasionally go to the always-helpful editor emeritus Steven
Rothman for advice and information.
Of course, production of a quarterly publication is a team effort. Steven Doyle is publisher; Mike McSwiggin, associate editor; Rich Krisciunas, copy editor; Mark Gagan, art director; and Ann Lewis, subscription manager. They’ve been a pleasure to work with.
