“Holmes gave me a brief review of what had passed” [THOR]  

The 2023 BSI Weekend has come and gone, and it was filled with plenty of food, friends, and frivolity.

We provide a glimpse of what we saw — including a number of our listeners and guests — and put it in context for you. Far from being inside baseball, this episode is a look at what makes Sherlockians tick and why we place so much value in attending events that help us express our fondness for our hobby and each other.

The Canonical Couplet quiz gives you a chance to identify a Sherlock Holmes story based on two lines of poetry; if your correct answer is randomly chosen, you'll win something from the IHOSE vaults.

Send your answer to comment @ ihearofsherlock .com by January 29, 2023 at 11:59 a.m. EST. The winner will be chosen at random from among all the correct answers. All listeners are eligible to play.
