Dust jacket notes: "Critics and readers alike agree that Sherlock Holmes was the greatest detective the world has ever seen. In this collection of stories, Holmes and Watson, and sometimes their spiritual descendants, enjoy a stimulating and edifying variety of adventures. Some adhere strictly to the canon, others range far afield. All retain the excitement and verve of the master's creation. Included are cases ranging through a galaxy of different solutions. A sampler: ˇa mysterious Englishman is picked up off the coast of Sumatra, hunting a deadly menace in 'A Father's Tale; ˇan octogenarian Holmes proves that he can still outwit even the Martian Menace in 'The Adventure of the Extraterrestrial; ˇHolmes, as a talking German Shepherd, solves the murder of 'A Scarletin Study'; ˇThe elusive James Philmore is finally explained, and his mysterious disappearance unmasked for what it really means, in 'The Problem of the Sore Bridge - Among Others.' In addition to 'The Adventure of the Devil's Foot' by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, featured are tales by Isaac Asimov (who also introduces the volume and each story), Poul Anderson and Gordon R. Dickson, Philip Jose Farmer, Sterling Lanier, Mack Reynolds, Fred Saberhagen, Gene Wolfe, and a new story of Edward Wellen."
