    There were a couple of pretty decent stories in here- The Case of the Missing Case by Alan Gordon had a good young Sherlock and Mycroft, Hounded by Zoe Sharp did a good modernization of Hound of the Baskervilles (and included the author's own character), and The Case of the Naked Butte...

    Excellent - a diverse collection in format, settings, and Holmes characters. I especially liked the ones by Zoe Sharp, Harley Jane Kozak, Alan Gordon, and Jamie Freveletti, but there wasn't a single story I didn't enjoy! ...

    Enjoyed the stories in this book, representing a rage of writers and artists, all inspired by Sherlock Holmes. Some of the stories are straight Holmes pastiches - either set in Victorian time or more modern eras. But most of them are tributes to the inspiration of Holmes and his method...

    These stories are very strange. The strangest is The Case of the Naked Butterfly, where all the characters are bugs. I'm sorry that my favorite mystery author LRK didn't contribute a story. I wanted to read this because she put an excerpt of the one by Harley Jane Kozak on her website....

    Originally published at Reading Reality Welcome to my review of the biennual collection of Sherlock Holmes-inspired stories edited by Laurie R. King and Leslie S. Klinger. This is an every two years treat, as evidenced by my reviews of the previous collections in this quasi-series, ...

    With a few exceptions, I really enjoyed this collection of short stories inspired by Sherlock. The stories were divided between the accurate historical setting and a contemporary re-imagining. And surprisingly, I enjoyed either equally. The stories that stood out for me were: Hounded (...

    This was a fun compilation of short stories inspired by Sherlock Holmes. Some were more like fan fiction and others just inspired by the genre. I enjoyed the fan fiction stories better than most of the others. A few of the stories were a little painful to get through. My favorite st...

    I love a pastiche of Sherlock Holmes but these are just poor stories relying on a great name like Sherlock Holmes. If Sir Arthur Conan Doyle read this book, he like me, would quit in the middle. Very disappointing. I was really looking forward to reading the book. If lines like...I wen...
