Welcome once again to Baker
Street Babes Live and Local, this time coming to you from
Bouchercon 2014 in Long Beach, California!
You’re heard the story: Laurie
King and Leslie Klinger wanted to create another
Sherlockian short story collection featuring some of the most
popular fiction writers anywhere: and the Arthur Conan Doyle Estate
demanded their pound of flesh. The #FreeSherlock movement was born,
Sherlock Holmes was freed at last, and now, after countless trials
(literally) you can finally purchase In
the Company of Sherlock Holmes, a wonderful
group of stories riffing off the life of the Great Detective
and—occasionally—even Sir Arthur Conan Doyle.
In this episode, Baker Street Babe Lyndsay chats with Les and
Laurie about their initial hankering for a pastiche collection,
their copyright travails, their editorial process, the stories in
the collection, their working relationship, and just how much crap
is written about Sherlock Holmes all over the world.
Listen here, and please do enoy!
