“a small but select library” [GLOR]  After covering the Shaw 100 in a previous episode and wondering what the future of Sherlockian libraries and collections might look like, we could think of no better guest to interview than Rebecca Romney, BSI ("That Gap on the Second Shelf"). You may remember her from a previous appearance (on Episode 101) or from her frequent drop-ins on Pawn Stars, or more recently in the documentary The Booksellers. We know her as a Sherlockian, co-author of Printer's Error, co-founder of the Honey & Wax Book Collecting Prize, and co-founder of Type Punch Matrix. And yes, even as a collector herself. Our conversation with Rebecca was wide-ranging, during which she gave her prediction about future definitive lists of collectibles, defined who collectors are and how young people can begin their collecting journey, and astutely observed that a collection is "an autobiography in the form of a treasure hunt." And of course, we have another Canonical Couplet to challenge your acuity. If you are chosen as a winner, you'll get a collectible or two from the IHOSE vaults.
