“some stuff that would suit my editor” [VALL] 

It's not that often that editor's door at The Baker Street Journal swings open. In fact, the last time it happened was at the turn of the century. But this January, Dan Andriacco, BSI ("St. Saviour’s, Near King’s Cross") was announced as the newest editor of the BSJ.

Dan assumes the seat that Steve Rothman, BSI, 2s. ("The Valley of Fear") has aptly occupied for 23 years (hear our interview with Steve in Episode 221), but he is not alone. Dan has brought not only a cadre of people to fill various roles, but he has also brought a lifetime of writing and editing.

What are Dan's priorities for the Journal? How will its pages change and possibly appeal to a wider audience? What can we expect in the next issue? And most importantly, what is the Christmas Annual about this year? The answers await. 

The Canonical Couplet is here for a chance to win BIG! If you submit a correct answer and we choose your name randomly chosen, you'll get a copy of Dan's very first issue of the BSJ.
