"An excellent collection of short stories and essays." --New York Review of Books
"An entertaining and diverting read." --BookPleasures.com
"Estleman's style as Watson is better than many." --BestofSherlock.com
"Readers are transported back to another place and time during the series of short stories that pay homage to the legend that is Sherlock Holmes." --Pop Culture Guy

"The Hound of the Baskervilles." "A Scandal in Bohemia." "The Sign of the Four." These are just a few of the well-known mysteries solved by the one and only Sherlock Holmes. The legendary detective is one of the most enduring literary characters of all time, and he appears once more in The Perils of Sherlock Holmes. Each of these adventurous tales has been authorized by the estate of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. While you may recognize some of these stories, others--such as "The Serpent's Egg"--are revealed for the very first time. Other works in this collection include three previously published essays that delve deeper into the daring world of Sherlock Holmes and the imaginative mind of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle.

Finally a book the captures the true spirit of Sherlock Holmes. I love the way the stories are written and the design of the begin page of each chapter. Although I do wish the stories were illustrated like the original Holmes stories were. This is a very good read and one you are sure to enjoy; especially good for a rainy day or night.read more

A mostly good but somewhat uneven collection of Holmes pastiche stories, most of them previously published. The majority of the pieces included here involve mashups with non-canonical figures, literary and historical: Tiny Tim, the creator of Fu Manchu, Sir Richard Francis Burton and even Wyatt Earp make appearances. The one story that hadn't been published before is the first chapter of what was intended to be a "round robin" effort among several authors; it's a good start, so it's something of a shame that Estleman didn't complete it. A short dramatic treatment of "Dr. Watson at Home" was probably the weakest element here.The volume also includes some of Estleman's musings on Holmes, Watson, and the canon, which are certainly interesting and well worth a read.read more
