“being out of the ordinary” [LADY] Since Sir Arthur Conan Doyle first began the tradition in 1927, Sherlockians worldwide have debated which are the "best" Sherlock Holmes stories. There have been polls, surveys and lists. Articles, books, and debates. The core list is usually consistent, with a few variables along the way. Ashley Polasek—a familiar name to listeners of I Hear of Sherlock Everywhere—took up the challenges as only she could: considering the stories and their reinterpretation over the years. The character of Sherlock Holmes has evolved over the years in multiple media, and as someone with a doctorate in adaptation studies, Ashley was in the perfect position to write (Lyons Press). She joins us to share the thinking that led to her curated list of ten short stories and one novel from the Canon. And she has a suggestion for a future potential I Hear of Sherlock Everywhere gift.
