This was an odd one; a few of the stories I'd call straight up horror before anything else, and several of them were definitely crime stories but had zero elements of mystery or even deduction. Some of them were a little stilted, but none of them were bad.

(Also, a whole lot of Sherlock Holmes riffs. Fun with the one that began "To Professor Moriarty, she will always be that bitch." although I think the one done entirely from Watson's perspective as he recruits the young conman is excellent.)
