The Sherlock Holmes stories by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle were recently voted the top mystery series of all time, and they have enthralled generations of readers--and writers. Now, Laurie R. King, author of the bestselling Mary Russell series in which Holmes plays a costarring role, and Leslie S. Klinger, editor of The New Annotated Sherlock Holmes, have assembled a stellar group of contemporary authors from a variety of genres and asked them to create new stories inspired by that canon. Inside you'll find Holmes in times and places previously unimagined, as well as characters who have themselves been affected by the tales of Sherlock Holmes.

This is an interesting book for anyone who, like me, loves the Mary Russell series.

I like this volume a little less than Leslie Klinger and Laurie R. King's previous collection "A Study in Sherlock" but this was a nice way to spend an evening. Most of the stories are in the spirit of Holmes rather than starring him so if that's fine with you you'll enjoy this book. There are some nice twists on different stories, reimaginings, and some very sweet tips of the hat. Certainly worth a look.
