Bestselling author Anne Perry and Conan Doyle's most recent biographer, Daniel Stashower, among others, contribute new stories that expand this tribute to Conan Doyle's immortal creation. Mystery editors Martin Greenberg and Carol-Lynn R"ssel Waugh specially commissioned original works by Stephen King, Michael Gilbert, John Lutz, Edward D. Hoch, Dorothy B. Hughes, Peter Lovesey, Lillian de la Torre, John Gardner, and others for the first edition.

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. ( )

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. ( )
