Haining puts together twelve more pieces of writing by Doyle and argues they should be part of the Sherlockian canon. But reading these it's clear why they're not in the canon: They're either (1) not about Holmes; (2) not by Doyle; or (3) not any good at all. ( )

Review: A collection of stories, plays and essays about Holmes that are not part of the Canon but certainly make nice supplementary reading. An excellent addition to any Holmes library... This book is similar to the out of print and often difficult to find Sherlock Holmes: The Published Apocrypha by Jack Tracy. Both books include the “almost Sherlock Holmes�? stories and plays that don’t fit in the Canon, but are certainly in the neighborhood.
The introduction discusses the pieces that make up the book and you will find some interesting tidbits (much of which was previously in Tracy’s book)... Peter Haining’s book is an outstanding collection that any Holmes fan should enjoy. If you already have Tracy’s Apocrypha, or vice versa, you will find they complement each other and you shouldn’t ignore one because you own the other.
