Expert Sherlockians Laurie King and Leslie Klinger put forth the question: What happens when great writers/creators who are not known as Sherlock Holmes devotees admit to being inspired by Conan Doyle stories? While some are highly-regarded mystery writers, others are best known for their work in the fields of fantasy or science fiction. All of these talented authors, however share a great admiration for Arthur Conan Doyle and his greatest creations, Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson.

It's unusual for me to like all the stories in a compendium, but this was a really splendid collection. Avoiding competing directly with Conon Doyle, many of these works feature modern day characters following Sherlock's methods in various intriguing circumstances. Others enter into Sherlock's world coming at the famous detective from the point of view of a totally unexpected/unrelated character. As is my usual approach to a short story collection I started with the authors I'm familiar with (Cory Doctorow, Ann Perry, William Kent Krueger) and went on to less familiar authors, prepared to abandon the book if the unknowns did not catch my fancy. In this case I read the rest of the authors with great enjoyment, and made a list of them so I can try their other work. A great read, ten stars!
