As with most collections, this "Casebook" of Holmes pastiches, where he teams up with various real-life and fictional characters, is a mixed bag. Some of the stories both read well, and are good reflections of the master detective. Others don't quite measure up in one or both of those aspects. However, none of the stories are really bad (one is a bit tedious), and all told this makes for a fine collection of alternate Holmes stories. Not a good first Holmes book, but if you have already read the ...more

Usually in a collection of short stories, there are one or two standouts to make the collection worth reading. This collection is so mediocre it lacks even that.

A Sherlock Holmes story, at the very very least, has to contain the character of Sherlock Holmes. I don’t just mean a guy with his name and his friend John Watson, along with the other accessories that make up Holmes’ life. I mean with his speech patterns, his eccentricities, his deductions – but also his chivalry, his courtesy, his int

This book contains fourteen short stories and novellas of Sherlockian fiction. “Crossover” is a new term, but it is generally thought to designate a piece of fiction involving an established fictional character who appears in the “Universe of Discourse” of a different established character, usually the product of a different author. The tales in this book include a number of interesting variations on that theme.

“Sherlock Holmes in the Lost World” is a novella by Martin Powell that places Holmes

Recommends it for: Sherlock Holmes crossover fans
Recommended to Skjam! by: Martin Powell
One of the fun things about fan fiction is the “crossover.” That’s where two separate fictional worlds are combined in the same story, which is generally impossible in the source material. Having the Enterprise crew battle the Daleks, Sailor Moon teaming up with the Brady Bunch, Bella Swan falling in love with Dracula, or any other bizarre combination the fan writer can think of.

Crossovers Casebook

Combine this with a public domain (mostly) character like Sherlock Holmes, and you can even do prof

Most of the fifteen stories in this book are pretty good. The last one is a true train wreck and I almost didn't get through it, but the rest were all at least adequate, with quite a few being quite good.

This was a fun read. Even though didn't know what Holmes' world was being crossed with, the majority of the stories were entertaining. There were some characters that make me want to look up their own canon and read the worlds they inhabit.

For the most part the stories here are, well. Okay? Nothing brilliant, but enjoyable. Except the last story, which is bloody woeful.
