This is a collection of mostly adequate short stories featuring Sherlock Holmes and supernatural mysteries, and three odd nonfiction essays. My favorites were Gillian Linscott, the predictable but colorful Adventure of the Late Orang Outang, and Bill Crider, the Adventure of the St. Marylebone Ghoul, which has better dialogue than most of the others. I found Michael and Clare Breathnach, the Coole Park Problem, simply baffling; perhaps it would make more sense to someone more familiar with William Butler Yeats and George Bernard Shaw, who appear as characters. Two of the essays, by Caleb Carr and Loren Estleman, will be of interest only to their fans. The other, a survey by Barbara Rosen of psychic detective fiction since the Victorian era, offers a long list of authors whose work is, perhaps deservedly, not widely remembered today. ( )
