The LCSS is so excited to announce the Sound of the Baskervilles, based in Seattle, WA, is a Diamond sponsor of the symposium. Thank you for your help in making this event a success!
The Sound of the Baskervilles is a literary organization founded to discuss the original Sherlock Holmes stories written by Arthur Conan Doyle. Through monthly meetings, our newsletter Ineffable Twaddle, special events and activities, we analyze and celebrate Sherlockiana in all forms, including canon, pastiche, film, radio and television adaptations, and fandom. We are an irreverant group of mystery solvers, collectors, Anglophiles, and fans of Victoriana, fondly referred to as the SOBs.
Founded as a scion society of The Baker Street Irregulars to serve the greater Puget Sound region of Western Washington, The Sound of the Baskervilles was christened on March 31, 1980. The first meeting was held on the Seattle to Bainbridge Island ferry. The name derives from a merging of HOUND and Puget Sound, the body of water along which the major cities of our region lie.
