it was amazing

I read a ton of 'fake' Sherlock Holmes in high school and this was one of my favorites.
It's very well written, but it also blew my 16 year old mind because it was the first time I'd read a book where characters from other books showed up.
That was amazing! Real writers were coming up with stories doing the kind of thing my friends and I did while reading comic books.
It was genius and lead to a life long obsession with team up stories and the kind of literary mix and match which is pretty common these days.

Saberhagen and Farmer were two of the only people doing it at the time and both became two of my favorite writers for it, and are still two of the best at it.
