An anthology generally lives or dies by the strength of it’s individual stories, so I’ll run through them, each in their own right.

The anthology opens with The Adventure of the Professor’s Bequest (Philip Purser-Hallard) which sees Holmes investigating the theft of papers belonging to the late Professor Moriarty. It suffers from a somewhat threadbare mystery (or rather, something of a slender set of clues) but makes up for it by punting the story into a fascinating retro-futuristic-Matrix, Cart

This is a collection of a dozen Sherlockian tales by a number of authors. The editor’s view is that Holmes remains Holmes, no matter who writes the tale and where or when it takes place. He agrees with me that Doyle brought life to an Archetype, to a character that is real to all people of all times and places, The Great Detective. Here we see that character through many eyes.

In “The Adventure of the Professor’s Bequest,” a novella by Philip Purser-Hallard, we meet Professor Moriarty’s daughter

I won this book, from entering the giveaway. I Love Sherlock Holmes, I was so excited to get this book and could not wait to read it. This is a must read every story is wonderfully written, I could not even pick a favorite for I loved them all. A Betrayal of Doubt was wonderful story with Dr. Watson Jr. They call Sherlock who has by now retired, to help them solve a rather puzzling mystery. A man found with strange marking's is found dead behind a locked door that, and there is only one key. I ...more

Some good stories. Some bad. And some that were just outright stupid and worthless. Too many people think that they can tell a tale set in London with Holmes and Watson and all will be right in the world. Well bull. Most of the plots that worked for Doyle have either already been reused by better authors or so overused that the need to add a sci-fi, horror, fantasy or erotic hook just ruins the story.

I won this book via Goodreads giveaway (and am embarrassingly far behind in reviewing it, for which I apologize). It was absolutely delightful. There was only a single story I didn't care for (the one set on Mars), and I generally find anthologies, especially those with a fairly narrow theme, to be very hit or miss. I have bought the previous collection in the series (Encounters of Sherlock Holmes) based on my enjoyment of this volume.

This is another collection of Sherlock Holmes tales by contemporary writers- & very good most of them are, too...

As ever with a short story collection, I'm not going to critique each tale in detail: for me, the best tales in here were "The Snowtorn Terror", by Justin Richards, & "A Matter of Doubt" by Philip Marsh, which sees Holmes called out of retirement 1 last time....

Well worth a look.

I loved it as it mainly followed the classic narrative. However still a 4/5 as there we're a few stories that didn't follow the traditional style; either by writing outside of Watson's p.o.v. or by drifting closer to the paranormal as a solution rather than the absolutely logical and sound endings, that I personally prefer, those particular stories brought down the overall rating.

Thought it was going to be a better compilation of stories. Started very good and ended great but the other stories couldn't keep up with the high standard I'm accustomed in Holmes stories. Hope you have a better time with this than me.

Some short stories are quite good, some far fetched and some uneven, did not quite ring true. On the whole, entertaining.

31/2 stars: while I found one story distasteful to the Sir Arthur style I did enjoy finding out what happened to the characters after Sherlock's fall with Moriarty.
