“An almanac!” [VALL] 

When Ross Davies, BSI ("The Temple"), first published Sherlock Holmes content in his publication, The Green Bag, he had no idea what he was in for. 

Let's just say that the response was enough to ensure that Sherlock Holmes got his own starring role in another publication, which became The Baker Street Almanac. Now in its fourth year, the BSA has become a go-to resource for tracking significant goings-on with respect to Sherlock Holmes around the world.

We talk with Ross about the genesis of this amazing publication, how people can get a copy, and what goodies await inside (think: Easter eggs!).

We have another Canonical Couplet after the interview. If you are chosen as a winner, you'll get a copy of the Baker Street Almanac. Answers are due by July 14, 2021 at 11:59 a.m. EDT.
