The Hounds of the InternetBy Murray, the Courageous Orderly
The Hounds of the Internet is the longest established online recognized scion society of the Baker Street Irregulars, organized for the discussion of Sherlock Holmes and kindred topics. It has been in existence since 1992. The format of the Hounds is to discuss one story each week in the order published in Baring Gould's, The Annotated Sherlock Holmes, except that the “Adventure of the Blue Carbuncle” is always discussed at Christmas.
For some time, each story has been introduced by Inquiries that are prepared by Alexander E. Braun (Murray, the Courageous Orderly)

The Inquiries pose interesting questions about the case for further discussion and background on what was happening in the rest of the world (with an emphasis on the British Empire) on the year in which the case took place. Starting in 2017, the Inquiries began being distributed also in PDF format. Those Inquiries that have been issued in that format are listed below using the abbreviations prepared by Jay Finley Christ in 1947. The number after the abbreviation is the year the query was published.
