A good collection of Sherlock stories, probably something here for most Sherlockians, but you'll have to do the hunting. I found some more enjoyable than others -- I was in the mood for some very traditional pastiches (i.e. no zombies, no super computers, not set in space, etc.). Some stories in the collection turned the canon on its head, others were much more traditional. My favorite was the story by Stephen King (yes, that Stephen King), "The Doctor's Case". Also, Barry Jones's "Shadows on the Lawn" was downright creepy, and was more in keeping with ACD's style. ( )

As far as Sherlock Holmes anthologies goes, this one is not good. It starts fine, and ends fine, it is just all the stories in the middle that aren't very good, and several are subpar.

As a centennial celebration I am sure some people getting this would be disappointed in several of the stories for not being faithful at all to the style.

I bought this book because I saw Stephen King's name on the cover. And King's story, "The Doctor's Case," is likely the best in the book. ( )
