    • One thing I have discovered about myself. To really enjoy a Sherlock Holmes story it needs to be set in the traditional surroundings of Victorian England, London for preference.I found the stories in this anthology too 'fish out of water' for me. Holmes and Watson just didn't fit in these surroundings. It's not the writers; it's just my preference.There was one story I really enjoyed and that was "The Adventure of the Mummy's Curse" by Cavan Scott. As it combined Holmes and Watson and one of my [...]


    • These days, it seems, an anthology featuring stories of the Great Detective is always just around the corner. A new anthology comes out, amidst a lot of fanfare, after every 3-4 months. Unfortunately, the stories are usually so varied in quality and tenor that most of those anthologies get appreciated only once, by the collectors, and/or intrepid readers like me, who would probably read ANYTHING having Sherlock Holmes in it. It gives me considerable pleasure to state that the present anthology b [...]


    • There are a plethora of Holmes anthologies out there, and they are typically a mixed bag for a variety of reasons; this one is no different. My favorite story in this one is The Doll Who Talked to the Dead. Anyone who knows Holmes knows that he tactfully debunks any belief in supernatural forces. Non-Conan Doyle Holmes works always vary in their quality and symmetry to the Holmes we know; this collection is worth a read.


    • A really mixed collection. Some stories are really great, others not so much though all are very well written.The first third of the boook was definitely 5 stars but the quality of the stories notably subsides after that and at the end I had the feeling that in every story Holmes needed to find the human reason behind some myth in Norway, South Africa or wherever.Two stories don't feature Dr. Watson and are told by Holmes. In one of those stories Holmes is in Paris with his mentor Edgar Allan Po [...]


    • More than twenty new Sherlock Holmes stories, most of which were a bit dull. I thought the writers were a little too careful and tried to write perfect homages. Some stories were good, though, especially those by Stephen Baxter and David Langford. Their stories had a touch of scifi in them.



    • 16 Sherlock Holmes, all taking place abroad, from China to Africa. Poe makes an appearance (he did not die as thought, but moved to Paris), as does Henrik Ibsen. Some take place after Sherlock's reported demise with Moriarity - one in particular takes place in China without Watson. Some are better than other, but over all - good read


    • Sherlock Holmes at his most ingenious in 15 exotic new mysteries. It was great to see Sherlock in locations such as Egypt, Norway, Paris etcInteracting with real life characters such as Edgar Allan Poe, Jules Verne, Henrik Ibsen but always assisted ably by Dr John Watson A must read for Sherlock aficionados and lovers of great mystery.


    • This has 15 short stories from varied authors. It is typical of such a collection is that some are very good and some only so-so. The joy of this book is that so many of these authors manage to portray Sherlock Holmes and Dr Watson with authentic voices.


    • I really like the Mammoth books by Denis O. Smith. His work shows a not-unkind Sherlock with little reference to drugs.
