Episode 264 – The Archetypical Sherlock Holmes

“men of such a different type” [SOLI]  

We're beginning a new monthly series focused on some of the best scholarship over the years. The kind of articles that highlight the creativity and ingenuity of Sherlockians and Holmesians as they consider some of the minutiae in the stories. The best of the best. We're calling this series "Masters Class."

In this inaugural episode, we look at an award-winning article from Baker Street Irregular and legendary science fiction writer Poul Anderson, on the archetype of Sherlock Holmes. From Archimedes to Merlin to Tolkien and a little farther into the future, it's just a Trifle.

Don't forget: Patreon supporters are eligible for two regular drawings, courtesy of our sponsor The Baker Street Journal.
