Overview

Sherlock Holmes in America by Martin H. Greenberg


Just in time for Sherlock Holmes, the major motion picture starring Robert Downey, Jr. and Jude Law: the world’s greatest fictional detective and his famous sidekick Dr. Watson are on their first trip across the Atlantic as they solve crimes all over nineteenth-century America—from the bustling neighborhoods of New York, Boston, and D.C. to fog-shrouded San Francisco. The world’s best-loved British sleuth faces some of the most cunning criminals America has to offer and meets some of America’s most famous figures along the way.

This exciting new anthology features over a dozen original short stories by award-winning and prominent writers, each in the extraordinary tradition of Conan Doyle, and each with a unique American twist. Featuring new stories by:

  • Edgar Award–winner Daniel Stashower
  • Edgar Award–winner Jon L. Breen
  • Shamus Award–winner Loren Estleman
  • Derringer Award–winner Steve Hockensmith
  • Anthony Award–winner Bill Crider
  • And many more!

I am a lover of the original Sherlock Holmes stories, and this doesn't come close to their high standards. While some stories are true to the Doyle cannon, others, such as 'The Song At Twighlight' are completely uncharacteristic to Holmes. I do not suggest this as a book for true Holme's fans. If you do want some new Sherlockian Adventures, check out my recomendations.

Sherlock Holmes in America is a collection of mostly only fair Holmes pastiches. None of them come close to anything in the canon, although a few are amusing. Searchers for new Sherlock stories should go to Mike Ashley’s The Mammoth Book of Sherlock Holmes.
