Factoid of the day

You know about the Hound of the Baskervilles,

but do you know about the "Typeface" of the Baskerville?

And EnglishHistorical FictionBlog discusses his career, and the wanderings of his corpse...

and it is not known why the Sherlock Holmes used his name for the story, but if you want to listen  to it, you can download it from Archives
