Timothy Greer, BSI (“The Ragged Shaw”) began his interest in Sherlock Holmes at age seven, with a rare TV airing of the 1932 Clive Brook film. An omnivorous reader with a strangely retentive memory for trifles, [LION] he soon purchased the foundational work of his Holmes library, the Now Age comic Great Adventures of Sherlock Holmes. Four years later, having read Watermill’s The Best of Sherlock Holmes till it fell apart, he acquired the Doubleday complete edition with the preface by Christopher Morley, and contracted a full-blown case of Sherlockianism from which he has never desired to recover. Areas of special interest are Holmes’s inspirations and legacies, books in Baker Street, Sherlockian theatre and film, and Canonical combat. Tim teaches Detective Fiction, British Literature, and other subjects at Memphis University School in Memphis, Tennessee, where he is a member of the scion The Giant Rats of Sumatra. A recipient of The Beacon Award, presented by The Beacon Society, a scion of the Baker Street Irregulars, he also received the Morley-Montgomery Award for the article “Murger in Baker Street, ” from the Autumn 2014 edition of The Baker Street Journal, to which publication he heartily encourages you to subscribe. He also writes for the website I Hear of Sherlock Everywhere, and contributed a chapter to the BSI Press book Sherlock Holmes: Behind the Canonical Screen, edited by Lyndsay Faye and Ashley Polasek.
