    The sixteen contributions are over all quite good with no clinkers

    The sixteen contributions are over all quite good with no clinkers though few are outstanding enough to stand out in the vast Sherlock universe. Alan Bradley opens the overall engaging homage to the great detective of 221B Baker Street with a throwback tale that comes across as if Mr. Doyle wrote You'd Better Go in Disguise" if you want to catch a killer in a park. Tony Broadbent as a modern day taxi driver give a fare "As to an "Exact Knowledge of London" tour in a strange but enticing entry. In 1901 President McKinley meets with Holmes in Buffalo with a strange request (see "Starling Events in the Electrified City" by Thomas Perry). An Anglophile FBI agent investigate the murder of an American in London, only to learn the path from Baker Street to Leavenworth is through Pennsylvania in "The Bone Headed league" by Lee Child. The Margolin brothers have Baker Street trivia guru New Yorker Ronald Adair on the moors solving "The Adventure of the Purloined Paget." Colin Cotterill provides a refreshing amusing take with his animated "The Mysterious Case of the Unwritten Short Story." Finally Jacqueline Winspear ends the collection with an ailing lad inspired after reading Holmes to solve the case with "A Spit of Detection."

    A Good Read

    I was somewhat skeptical when this book was recommended in a newspaper, but curious enough to purchase it. I like the "real" Sherlock Holmes tales a lot, and generally don't like it when folks mess with the "real thing." However, this collection is quite interesting in its approach, and it is amazing to see how the various authors took such different "spins" on the general topic. I'm about half-way through the book now and am enjoying it a lot.

    Holmes just keeps on ticking...

    There is little I can add to what has already been said above, except to point out that they neglected to mention my favorite story, the Kate Shugak tale by Dana Stabenow!

    Overall, a fun romp with the great detective in many different guises.
