A follow-up collection to well-received The Perils of Sherlock Holmes!
Award-winning author Loren D. Estleman has curated a collection of Sherlock Holmes stories from some of the finest authors in Sons of Moriarty and More Stories of Sherlock Holmes. This is the first time that these stories appear together in one anthology, including "Sons of Moriarty," a Sherlock Holmes novella, appearing here for the first time.
Estleman's last Holmes collection, The Perils of Sherlock Holmes, was authorized by the Estate of Arthur Conan Doyle and was met with rave reviews. It was dubbed "an excellent collection of short stories and essays" by the New York Review of Books, "an entertaining and diverting read" by Bookpleasures.com, and was said to transport readers "to another place and time during the series of short stories that pay homage to the legend that is Sherlock Holmes" on the Pop Culture Guy Blog.

Loren D. Estleman is the author of nearly seventy novels, including the long-running Amos Walker private detective series; Sherlock Holmes Vs. Dracula, or The Adventure of the Sanguinary Count; and Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Holmes. In thirty years, his Sherlock Holmes novels have rarely been out of print.From Booklist:
Doyle, Holmes, and Watson are no longer with us, but a century-full of writers have been doing their best to deal with our loss. Estleman puts together one of the best of the wish-it-were-so pastiche anthologies, corralling stories that have Holmes confronting the automobile, thwarting an apparent kidnap plot in Wyoming, and—in Estleman’s own novella-length contribution—battling the Black Hand. The problem in some of the stories is tone. What’s the author’s attitude toward his material? When we see Holmes striking a match on the seat of his pants, as in Estleman’s “Sons of Moriarty,” or watch him “sulk like a spoiled child” as Watson disses his fiddle-playing in John Lutz’s “The Infernal Machine,” we wonder how we’re supposed to take it. Parody? Anne Perry’s “The Case of the Bloodless Sock” describes Holmes as a “miserable teenager” with no explanation, leaving the reader twice-stranded. The best entry is Robert Fish’s howlingly funny, “The Adventure of the Double-Bogey Man,” wherein Schlock Homes of Bagel Street is openly parodied. No tone problems here, and, oddly, it’s the most affectionate entry. --Don Crinklaw
