“a line of books” [NOBL] 

Derrick Belanger is one half of the duo responsible for Belanger Books, one of the prominent Sherlockian publishers, founded in 2015.

His passion for Sherlock Holmes began uncommonly — in a way we can't ever recall hearing from a guest before. But that passion fueled the founding and direction of Belanger Books, which focuses on traditional Sherlock Holmes pastiches as well as the Solar Pons stories.

Many of the titles on Belanger Books began as Kickstarter efforts, and the latest volume, Steel True, Blade Straight is an annual journal of Sherlock Holmes- and Sir Arthur Conan Doyle-inspired stories, poems, and scholarship and is endorsed by the ACD Society.

We also have listener mail, Sherlockian news, and of course the Canonical Couplet, which features as a prize your choice of a book from the Belanger Books catalog.
