The better entries are generally those that play it straight. John Lutz and Lillian de la Torre combine traditional Holmesian deduction with items of historico-technical interest-the Gatling gun and the emerging science of ballistics.

Start by marking The New Adventures of Sherlock Holmes as Want to. .This book was published in 1987 and contains short stories reimagined by 16 authors.

Start by marking The New Adventures of Sherlock Holmes as Want to Read: Want to Read savin. None of the stories in this anthology come close to the original stories by Sir Conan Doyle, still, they're worth checking out if you're starving for new Sherlock Holmes content as they offer a mostly fun read, standouts, in my opinion, include: 'The Doctor's Case' written by none other than Stephen King, a story that sees Doctor Watson solving the mistery before Sherlock himself. Most take place at the time of the original Sherlock Holmes stories, but one is set in 1980s New York.

Written by many different authors, they all read like the original Sherlock Holmes .

Written by many different authors, they all read like the original Sherlock Holmes stories. You should have first read "The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes" and "The Memoirs of Sherlock Holmes" before reading this book. There are many collections of Sherlock Holmes stories written after Conan Doyle closed the canon of the official 56 short stories and 4 novels. Conan Doyle had disdain for his character sometimes (he thought that attention to Holmes distracted from his more serious work), but he also had regard and affection for him at times, and in the end remained his creator.

Bestselling author Anne Perry and Conan Doyle's most recent biographer, Daniel Stashower, among others, contribute new stories that expand this tribute to Conan Doyle's immortal creation.

My sister had a copy of this book when we were in high school, but when she got married she took it with her. I loved being able to have my own copy. Some of the stories I'd remembered, but there were some that I got to fall in love with all over again. Written by many different authors, they all read like the original Sherlock Holmes stories. Definately worth buying!

Pretty good read.

Recently, I have read many of the "new" collections with Sherlock Holmes as the main character. While all have been enjoyable reading, this seems to be one of the best volumes available in that the stories have preserved the role of the main characters in their familiar habitats but with original plots. While not uninteresting, the collections which have involved Holmes with historical incidents or those told from another perspective other than Watson's or attempts to implant a new theme or agenda have not been as satisfying.

This collection was prepared to coincide with the 100th Anniversary of Sherlock Holmes first appearance in print and has a variety of authors giving their take on the classic detective. The most successful stories for me were the ones that adhered to the classic Doyle format and style with minor variations. The least successful were those that tried to modernize Holmes or engaged in too many winking references to earlier Holmes tales. The absolute worst story in the book and one of the worst stories I’ve ever read was “The House That Jack Built” - what a god awful premise and a horribly written piece of work! Fortunately the good stories outnumber the bad.
Recommended with reservations.

The New Adventures of Sherlock Holmes, Ed. Greenberg

This 1987 book was authorized by Dame Jean Conan Doyle, the daughter and heir of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, on the 100th anniversary of "A Study in Scarlet". The stories created a standard for detective stories that solved crimes through observed clues. The stories in this book were created to pay tribute to Doyle's characters. The last three stories were added for this edition in 1999. These are the titles of each chapter and their authors. You should have first read "The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes" and "The Memoirs of Sherlock Holmes" before reading this book.

01) The Infernal Machine, John Lutz
02) The Final Toast, Stuart M. Kaminsky
03) The Phantom Chamber, Gary Alan Ruse
04) The Return of the Speckled Band, Edward D. Hoch
05) The Adventure of the Unique Holmes, Jon L. Breen
06) Sherlock Holmes and "The Woman", Michael Harrison

07) The Shadows on the Lawn, Barry Jones
08) The Adventure of the Gowanus Abduction, Joyce Harrington
09) Dr. and Mrs. Watson at Home, Loren D. Estleman
10) The Two Footmen, Michael Gilbert
11) Sherlock Holmes and the Muffin, Dorothy B. Hughes
12) The Curious Computer, Peter Lovesey

13) The Adventure of the Persistent Marksman, Lillian de la Torre
14) The House that Jack Built, Edward Wellen
15) The Doctor's Case, Stephen King
16) The Second Treaty, Daniel Stashower
17) The Adventure of the Venomous Lizard, Bill Crider
18) Hostage to Fortune, Anne Perry

The Afterword tells about "Moriarity and the Real Underworld", the character from "The Final Problem". Moriarity is the respectable man who controls the criminal class. [Is this a subtle reference to a ruling class?] John Gardner describes London in the 19th century and its various types of criminals. That great train robbery of 1855 inspired a movie in 1978. Criminals are still found in today's London. [Or in any big city.] This chapter omits any references to the financial swindles that continue in the big cities today. Why were there no cases that involved stock frauds and swindles? They must have been as common in London as in New York.

There are many collections of Sherlock Holmes stories written after Conan Doyle closed the canon of the official 56 short stories and 4 novels. Conan Doyle had disdain for his character sometimes (he thought that attention to Holmes distracted from his more serious work), but he also had regard and affection for him at times, and in the end remained his creator. Many of these stories have kept more or less to the spirit of Holmes and Watson in the originals, but few match the canonical grace (of course, this can be said of some of the stories Conan Doyle penned himself).

There are some well-known names here (Stephen King gets top billing, but other names such as John Gardner and Michael Harrison, a well-known Sherlockian scholar and writer, also bear repeating). Some of these stories take their inspiration from canonical happenings and sidelines, while others go further afield and involve Holmes and Watson in new situations.

For example, Harrison's story is entitled 'Sherlock Holmes and "The" Woman', a clear reference to Irene Adler of 'A Scandal in Bohemia' fame. In this story we find out that both Adler and her Bohemian counterpart in the mystery are in fact different people than original presented. It makes for a mystery within a mystery, and a nice twist.

Stephen King's contribution was reportedly done on a wager, and involves Dr. Watson solving a case first, perhaps the only time Watson solves a case rather than Holmes (albeit other non-canonical stories pick up on this same theme). In this story, we learn that Watson outlives Holmes by forty years or so; of course, die-hard fans see Holmes as immortal, so one has to accept the idea of Holmes' death. What a curious pairing of options...

This collection was produced to celebrate the centennial of the 'birth' of Holmes, stories of whom were first published in 1887; this book was first published in 1987. It includes, in addition to the sixteen new stories, a poem by Mollie Hardwick, which includes the lines

Were a time-restoring charter

Granted by grace of Heaven,

Who would not this tired age barter

For a night of 'eighty-seven,

When, as fog through pane and curtain

Softly grey comes creeping in,

Wise - immortal - strange and certain -

Sherlock plays his violin.

Holmes' violin, a recurring element in the canon, features in stories here. There is much familiar from the setting of 221B Baker Street, the same London and the same Victorian Age. This is a worthy collection of honour and hommage to one of the stellar figures in modern mystery.

The game is afoot.
