A general store on Route 66 featuring "a little Ford" [LAST]

It’s summertime and the Sherlocking is easy! In our 66th episode, we travel down the road with the top down and enjoy the sites and news along the way.

Our breezy conversation ranges from hockey and snow (it’s Christmas in July!), which sends us down a rabbit hole of snow in the Canon, to the latest in the #FreeSherlock movement, and then on to some events.

But the real fun begins when Burt and Scott investigate the various iterations of Sherlockian tchotchkes that give us kicks as Sherlockians. As it happens, our little show and site focuses on the intersection of Sherlock Holmes and popular culture, so our dueling top 10 lists should bring a smile to your face.

What did we miss? What would you add to the lists that we started? Let us know with a comment tagged #IHOSE 66.

Speaking of hashtags - don’t forget the contest we mentioned in Episode 65. You have until August 30 to enter for a chance to win the Tom Richmond print of the 8 Sherlock Holmes portrayals.

Our Gas-Lamp this time is “A long, long trail a-winding" from the Spring issue of 2014 (Vol. 64, No. 1) of the Baker Street Journal.

Finally, Burt shares news of his talk at a local library - perhaps serving as a model for like-minded Sherlockians in other communities to do the same.

Visually, the most faithful production of the Sherlock Holmes stories. Jeremy Brett in “The Naval Treaty.”

I Hear of Sherlock Everywhere: New Sherlock Holmes Boom? What New Sherlock Holmes Boom?

In an exceedingly well written essay, James O’Leary opines on a subject that may touch the third rail of Sherlockian fandom.

tl;dr

We’ve seen this before. "There is nothing new under the sun." [STUD]

But is it different this time around?

The clues are within Episode 65 of I Hear of Sherlock Everywhere: Art in the Blood

MAD Magazine artist Tom Richmond joins us to discuss how Sherlock Holmes has inspired his work (and vice versa). During the show, we describe what you have to do to be eligible to win one of his limited edition prints of “The Game’s Afoot!”

After a slight delay (thanks to a crashed hard drive and a lost interview), we’re back with a super-sized episode that we hope will make up for our absence.

We’re pleased to welcome Tom Richmond, one of the “Usual Gang of Idiots” at MAD Magazine. Tom’s career has been a most interesting one, and we explore how he managed to take an adolescent aspiration and turn it into an award-winning career at the bible of comedic publications.

During this show, you’ll find out how inspiration comes to a creative type who works in his basement of his Minnesota home; the role of Batman and Superman in Tom’s career development; how Tom first came to meet Sherlock Holmes (hint: we’ve had his muse on the show previously). A good deal of the program will be related to art, comic art, caricature and the visual aspect of Sherlock Holmes, which should interest a Sherlockian art collector like Jerry Margolin, who was on IHOSE #16.

Speaking of collecting, you may have noticed the image at the top of this show’s entry. That lovely piece of work - "The Game is Afoot!" - is available as a limited edition print. Tom talks about his previous experience with Dr. Who and James Bond prints and how he came to select the eight actors to represent Sherlock Holmes on this print. If you’d like to purchase one, Tom’s site has a limited run of 450 for just $25 (cheap).

Your chance to win big!

In addition to giving you the opportunity to purchase one of Tom’s prints, we have a listener contest in which you could win one of these highly coveted prints (plus one other special item we mention in the show). How can you make yourself eligible to win? Well, you’ll just have to listen to the episode and discover where we lay out the rules. [But it does involve the hashtag #IHOSE65.] The contest is open until August 30, 2014.

 

A few listener comments - including one that appeared as a message in a bottle (see below) - graced our inboxes this time around.

  

 

We selected an original Gas-Lamp to perfectly complement the show: “Art in the Blood,” from Vol. 8, No. 2 (April 1958) of the Baker Street Journal.

Bonus Material 

If you happen to subscribe to our program via our IHOSE Android app, our IHOSE iOS app, or our IHOSE Windows app, we occasionally throw in bonus content to justify the $1.99 or so that the app stores charge for it. In this case, we’ve given you a PDF with each one of Tom’s Sherlock Holmes characterizations on its own page.

Don Hobbs, BSI ("Inspector Lestrade") aka "The Maniac Collector"

 

After a long hiatus, we’re back in the Collectors’ Corner. This time, we’re joined by the Maniac Collector himself, Don Hobbs, BSI (“Inspector Lestrade”).

For those of you who don’t know Don, you’re in for a treat, for Don is a Texan through and through - and that means big stories, a big appetite for his interests and a big BIG collection of Sherlock Holmes books in translation. Of the 100 languages that the Canon has been translated into, Don has books in 96 of those languages. And that’s only part of his 11,000 book collection. As a world traveler, he stays in touch with his network of connected individuals to keep him up to date on new pieces for his collection.

The Hound of the Baskervilles in Occitan

Don is also the general editor for the BSI International Series, which to date has included scholarship from Japan, Scandinavia, Australia and Italy. Future volumes include Spain and Canada, to name two.

Tune in to hear about Don’s inspiration, his favorite among all of his foreign editions, where he first encountered Sherlock Holmes, how collecting has affected his life, the most amazing collections he’s seen of other Sherlockians, and advice for future collectors.

In lieu of our Gas-Lamp, we asked Don to read one of his previous entries in the Maniac Collector’s Inbox - #333 from October 19, 2008, titled “The Anti-Peter Principle.”
