BSJ 2019 Christmas Annual

The BSJ 2019 Christmas Annual cover

Baring-Gould of Baker Street:
The Life and Footprints of William S. Baring-Gould.

By Julie McKuras, Timothy J. Johnson, Richard J. Sveum, and Gary Thaden.

This year’s Annual presents the man behind The Annotated Sherlock Holmes and Sherlock Holmes of Baker Street. Baring-Gould, a promotions director for Time-Life publications, also wrote a biography of Nero Wolfe, an annotated collection of limericks, and a detailed chronology of the Canon.

The authors have dug into numerous archives and expended endless energy in capturing Baring-Gould, not an easy task more than fifty years after his death. The work is filled with letters and photos that have never before been published.
