Curly sits down with long-time friend of The Babes, Elinor Gray, about her new Sherlockian conference in Oregon. The Left Coast Sherlockian Symposium is an inclusive gathering of scholarship, camaraderie, and adoration of Holmes and his world. It’s not to be missed.
Elinor gets trollied on plastic-pouch cocktails and thermos wine and tells the story of Silver Blaze in this edition of DRUNK CANON. Tune in for space horse in boots, tiny knife, train exposition, night time/dog time, and many clues and red herrings. Recorded at 221B Con 2019, this Drunk Canon led by Chelsea and SundayDuck was a long time coming!
Elinor and Jen discuss joining Sherlock Holmes scions and societies with JL, and what that means for queer fans, or fans who enjoy queer readings of the Sherlock Holmes text. The conclusion: try a local group out! You can only enact change from the inside. If the group doesn’t jive with you, go ahead and start your own. There are never too many Sherlock Holmes fan groups.
Elinor reads A Fly’s Foot-fall for Jordan and Emily on SyFy Fandom Files’s Valentine’s Day Episode, and discusses Sherlock Holmes, her journey through fandom, and what smut means to us on this auspicious day.
Elinor discusses backyard beekeeping and Sherlock Holmes with Claire and Chelsea: what bees do, what Holmes would have liked about them, and how to get started keeping your own bee hives.
Elinor helps Babes Amy and Sarah interview Lyndsay Faye about her new collection of Sherlock Holmes mysteries, and becomes an honorary Babe in the process!
Elinor talks the later years of Sherlock Holmes with Alexxphoenix42, CWB, and Mazarin221b, and makes some recommendations for good fics to read when you're looking for that retirementlock experience.
Elinor chats with Roane, Kara Braden (Kryptaria), and Bran (Mydwynter) about the crossover between fandom writing and professional writing.
