“Maybe you collect yourself” [EMPT]
Many Sherlockians are collectors. Most of those collect books or related written material. But collectors are an interesting breed, as widely varied as the general population.
Peter Eckrich and Rob Nunn discovered this fact as they set out to put together The Finest Assorted Collection: Essays on Collecting Sherlock Holmes. In essays written by 27 Sherlockians, they take us on a journey of collecting that highlights the eccentricities of the collections and collectors alike. It's a book that's all about passion, as our interview makes abundantly clear.
The Canonical Couplet follows the interview; try matching wits with our poetical representation of a Sherlock Holmes story. If you correctly guess the story we're referring to, you'll be eligible for a drawing for a copy of The Finest Assorted Collection.
