    Recently I've been watching through the Granada series of Sherlock Holmes adaptations. It's a really great series for anyone into Sherlock Holmes or who likes mystery stories in general - the adaptation is mostly faithful and usually well paced to sustain the tension, the characterisat...

    The first thing that struck me about this book was the loving care and research that had been made by Richard Lancelyn Green in coming up with this collection of apocryphal Sherlock Holmes stories. This is not a collection of Sherlockian pastiches in the present sense, because the auth...

    The only non-canon book I've enjoyed is Shadows Over Baker Street, edited by the marvelous John Pelan (who is a helluva nice guy, to boot). On the whole, I am put off by authors' attempts to meddle with others' characters. ...

    Really one of the best collections of Sherlock Holmes pastiches I've read. The first story, The Adventure of the First Class Carriage, is the only clunker, and even it isn't bad, just middling. Each of the authors does a remarkably good job recapturing the originals, and though a few o...

    This is an anthology or collection of Holmes adventures. Written by well known authors in the style of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. In the introduction, the back story to each chapter/adventure is given along with a bit of a bio on the writer. They are a bit long to get through, but inte...

    This book is an amazing work of mystery,I've become quite infatuated with Sherlock Holmes and his theory of deductive reasoning. ...

    This is a really solid collection, put out by Penguin in the mid-1980s, containing pastiches from Ronald Knox onwards. In addition to Knox's contribution, there's also a delightfully rococo contribution from Vincent Starrett. A 1945 story by S.C. Roberts cleverly alludes to the Megathe...

    Eleven stories of varying quality - and to be truthful, even the best of them isn't brilliant - written around the period 1920-1950, by authors wishing to "add" to Conan Doyle's detective canon. Some are little more than mediocre attempts to produce fresh cases for the famous private d...

    Green's introduction to the collection, and the history behind each of the stories is actually more interesting than most of the tales themselves, which can become a little repetitive. ...

    This is a rather entertaining "further adventures" collection not from the pen of Conan Doyle (except Adrian) that is well worth reading, with a rather well known (or is she) client in one of the last adventures. ...

    This book contains a series of Sherlock Holmes stories by various writers of what would now be called fan fiction. Although a Sherlock Holmes fans will find them worth a read the collection is a bit disappointing. The plot lines are either copies of an earlier story or a very simple an...

    Well I like any Sherlock Holmes story I have read (so far) and this book is no exception. The stories in this book are true to the spirit of Conan Doyle's hero and very enjoyable. Well written and enjoyable even I think without the Holmes name being mentioned. So much the better for be...

    The quality here is very mixed; but there are some stories (particularly in the second half) that so successfully capture the flavour of the original adventures that at times I felt I could be reading lost tales from Conan Doyle's own pen. Even the less successful ones were still enjoy...

    I thoroughly enjoyed The Albino?s Treasure. After a slowish start, the writing swiftly builds momentum until the elements come together very effectively at the end. The idea of Sherlock Holmes getting caught up in a turf war between rival master villains Fu Manchu and Zenith the Albi...
