That's the only way I know how to describe the feeling that's in the air as Sherlockians from around the world think about their descent on New York City next week.

From the first gatherings on Wednesday evening, to the final brunch on Sunday, the the lobby of the Algonquin Hotel will be abuzz with the meetings of new friends and old, all quite certain of one thing: the popularity of one Mr. Sherlock Holmes.

As we are now within a week of this happy annual occasion, we at the Baker Street Journal look forward to seeing you at our table in the Vendors' Room next Saturday morning. If you have a moment, drop by and mention this blog - there may be a little surprise for you!
