Another winning collection of Holmesian delight. I find it fascinating to see the variety of approaches these authors have for the Holmes canon. Great diversity. Some more amazingly well done than others, but an over-all treat. Do yourself a favor an read all of the anthologies by King and Klinger.

Echoes of Sherlock Holmes : -- stories inspired by the Holmes canon / -- edited by Laurie R. King and Leslie S. Klinger. When reading anthologies, I generally start with authors I know and then read on discover new-to-me authors’ work. I started this book with Hank Phillippi Ryan's "The Adventure of the Dancing Women" and LOVED it! I get special delight in figuring out the mystery just a half-step before the reveal . . . too far in advance and I get impatient for the character to get it. I loved the elegant plotting and delightful characters, and Emojis vs. real communication is a most relevant issue. Afterward, I read Doyle’s original "The Dancing Men" and enjoyed tying the two together. I enjoy connections to my own life and found them here. I took geology in college (so I wouldn't have to take biology and dissect things) and am still fascinated with rock strata and fossils. The dance studio scenes resonated as well. A friend threw herself into dance after a terrible breakup, and our group of friends regularly danced on Saturday nights until closing time. I loved reading in the bio of the author as a child disappearing to the barn to read the complete Sherlock works. I used to climb a tree to read, but didn’t read mysteries until later in life, and haven’t systematically read the entire Canon. It might be time to sequester and read them all myself, after I finish this anthology, or perhaps a few more, alternating with the new stories. ;-)
