“It was a masterpiece of villainy, and he carried it out like a master” [NORW]  

January brought another entry in the Manuscript Series from the BSI Press. This time, it's the manuscript of "The Adventure of the Norwood Builder," and it was edited by Ross Davies, BSI ("The Temple"). He and Ira Matetsky, BSI ("The Final Problem") join us for this episode.

We learn about where this manuscript is held and the heroics that Ira had to take to ensure its availability for the project, as well as how Ross managed to select a group of people beyond lawyers to produce what is one of the most fascinating collections of essays in the Manuscript Series yet. (And we're not just saying that because our own Burt Wolder has an entry.) 

Here's a great chance to get a superb prize! So significant that we can't mention it here. The Canonical Couplet returns with two lines of poetry for you; all that remains is for you to determine which Sherlock Holmes story they represent. And it's an easy one this week.
