Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
From Vonda N. McIntyre's tale of crop circles in the English countryside ("The Adventure of the Field Theorems") to Gary Allen Ruse's exploration of cloning in the Victorian age ("The Holmes Team Advantage"), the 26 stories in this collection apply an eerie twist to the adventures of the world's greatest detective. Mystery/sf crossovers have gained in popularity over the last decade, and this strong collection of Sherlockian stories should amply reward fans of both genres.
