The Gunpowder Plot:

Exactly as broadcast on November 5, 1945. Will history repeat itself? On the Guy Fawkes holiday in 1899 Holmes and Watson encounter a murder plot with an amazing similarity to a famous case that is almost three hundred years old. Can Holmes prevent a murder or will he become a victim himself?

The Babbling Butler:

Exactly as broadcast on January 27, 1947. “I must say his actions tonight hardly seem the behavior of a sane man!” comments Dr. Watson on the peculiar musings of the babbling butler. Yet this is only the beginning, as Holmes and Watson find themselves drawn into an investigation of not one, but two tragic deaths.

About the Author
Author Anthony Boucher

Anthony Boucher, pseudonym of William Anthony Parker White (1911–1968), was a prolific mystery author and Edgar Award–winning editor. Between 1942 and 1947 he worked for the San Francisco Chronicle as a mystery reviewer and also spent time writing for the New York Times. His short fiction has been published in many distinguished American fiction magazines, including Adventure, Black Mask, Ellery Queen’s Mystery Magazine, Weird Tales, and many others. His short story “The Quest for Saint Aquin” was selected by the Science Fiction Writers of America as one of the best science fiction short stories of all time. In the 1940s, he was also involved in radio, hosting a show called Golden Voices and writing a number of Sherlock Holmes dramas. He also helped to create the Mystery Writers of America in 1946 and served as president in 1951.
