    1 thought on “Sherlock Holmes: The Game's Afoot

    1. This collection is described by the editor as a new batch of twenty adventures to fascinate and entertain you The recent appearances of several assemblages of Sherlockian tales constructed around one theme or another have tended to jade the palates of Sherlockians for specialized sorts of mysteries Without citing any particular example, I have noted, and reviewed, a number of specialized collections in recent times to the point that the appearance of a solid clump of Sherlockian entertainment is [...]

    2. A great selection of new Sherlock Holmes stories.Considering the variety of authors, this selection forms a remarkably cohesive set stylistically It is very faithful to Arthur Conan Doyle s original writings, and, for the most part, provides entirely plausible and rather clever additions to the lives and adventures of Holmes and Watson There are a number of references to the original stories which help contextualise the characters and adventures in a pleasing way.There are occasions when, in my [...]

    3. Simply the worst collection of Sherlock Holmes stories I have ever attempted to read Some passable stories are surrounded by dreck I have no idea how most of these stories were selected, or, worse still, selected en mass I feel sorry for the good to passable authors They re outnumbered and outgunned.The point where I gave up on anything good in this collection and continued on in grim fascination was the story which put forward the idea that the elderly Watson, for no clear reason, became a Bols [...]

    4. An entertaining pot pourri of modern Sherlock Holmes stories As might be expected with a collection of this sort, the quality is variable, but in only a couple of the stories did I feel that it was really below par There are also some crackers June Thomson s The Case of the Gufstasson Stone is a wonderfully gripping story of jewellery theft that puts Holmes and Watson in real jeopardy, and the editor s own The Reichenbach Secret sees the two friends wistfully recalling their glory days from Holm [...]

    5. Was a little disapointed with this book as it claims on the front to be tales of mystery and the supernatural but only the first story could claim to have anything to do with supernatural elements at all.The rest of the stories were ok but not really what I was looking for when I picked up this book.

    6. A collection of mediocre to good stories, but the latter were slightly There were rehash of some old tropes, and some were re writes of canonical classics Nevertheless, the book is worthy of being read in gloomy evenings.
