“conversation through the length and breadth of England.” [SILV]
In August 2022, we lost a towering figure in the world of Sherlock Holmes fans. Nicholas Utechin, BSI ("The Ancient British Barrow") passed away.
Nick joined The Sherlock Holmes Society of London in 1966 at the tender age of 14. Ten years later, he began a 30-year run as editor of The Sherlock Holmes Journal. Nick was made an Honorary Member of the SHSL in 2006 and was also a Master Copper-beech-smith of The Sons of The Copper Beeches of Philadelphia.
He left a large footprint in our world (larger than "the footprints of a gigantic Hound!") and one of his frequent collaborators and editors was Steven Rothman, BSI ("The Valley of Fear"), who joins us for this very special episode to reminisce about Nick's life with Sherlock Holmes.
The Canonical Couplet awaits: two lines of poetry that signify a Sherlock Holmes story. You tell us which and one randomly-chosen winner will receive a mystery prize from the IHOSE vaults.
