The sixth annual gathering of the Second Street Irregulars will take place May 17-19th, 2012 at the Lizzie Borden Bed & Breakfast Museum. Along with the usual research presentations and field trips, the recent release of Parallel Lives has furnished the group with new places and people from the past to explore over the weekend. Some of the “Muttoneaters” will be visiting the Villisca crime scene, site of the 1912 axe murders, and spending the night onsite two weeks before the Fall River annual meeting, and will no doubt have much to report. Annual awards of recognition will be presented at the house this year.
It would seem that we have some Partners in Crime, to be found at the Baker Street Blog maintained by Scott Monty (a BSI member) which is filled with suggestions for good reads, links, articles, and Sherlockiana. You may wish to visit and read some of their most excellent postings about the game afoot in other quarters. There is apparently never a shortage of crime. http://www.bakerstreetblog.com/
