Anyone who loves Sherlock Holmes will surely enjoy this book! Filled with short stories, written by contemporary writers who were influenced by Holmes, it's a read to be savoured. Must admit to liking some stories much more than others, but that's the way of short stories, I think!

Anyone that enjoys Holmes stories will really like this book. All of the short story authors are famous in their own right, and the stories themselves are a delight.

Not your run-of-the-mill pastiche. Some truly interesting and inventive takes on the characters of Holmes and Watson and on Doyle's style. My favorite by far was Neil Gaiman's contribution.
