CHARACTERS ☆ E-book, or Kindle E-pub ✓ Laurie R. King FREE DOWNLOAD ↠ A Study in Sherlock Stories Inspired by the Holmes Canon What would happen if you asked eighteen top writers who don't normally write about Sherlock Holmes to write about Sherlock Holmes What if you wrote to them saying In 19th century England a new kind of hero a consulting detective blossomed in the mind of an underemployed doctor and ignited the world's imagination In the thirteen decades since A Study in Scarlet first. I don t know why I keep doing this to myselfThere ARE a couple of decent reads but this collection is chiefly notable for another atypical and enjoyable SH pastiche by Neil Gaiman affectionately inspired by his own experience with beekeepingThe problem is really that no matter what criticism writers may cast at Doyle or at Holmes not as interesting as he thought he was the fact is that Doyle put these stories together really well and he laid Holmes dry analytical deductions out with just the right mixture of arrogance intellect and humor They re wonderful It s like watching a magician pull a rabbit a white mouse a flurry of doves out of his hat That s what s missing in a lot of stories inspired by Holmes just the deduction isn t enough It isn t the detective we love thanks to Doyle s artistry it s the man So Solar Pons works because he isn t tongue in cheek he s a sincere and blatant carbon copy of the original And Nero Wolfe works because he is everything that the original is not There isn t a middle ground when imitating HolmesThe detectives and stories in this book may work in another context but in a collection supposed to be inspired by the canon they make a poor showing

A Study in Sherlock is an anthology first published in 2011 The stories allegedly take inspiration from the Holmes canon The problem is sometimes the inspiration is so obscure that even the most dedicated Sherlockian can t spot the bloody thingThe anthology was edited by noted Sherlockian Leslie S Klinger who is currently up to his arse in a lawsuit and author Laurie R King I am being honest that I would think twice about picking up an anthology edited by them again A Study in Sherlock did not meet my expectations Too many of the stories had modern settings and did not feature Sherlock Holmes and John Watson at allTwo stories however made up for much of my disappointment with the rest of the book One was by Tony Broadbent and featured a London taxi driver who as well as name checking almost ever actor who has played Holmes and Watson had a lovely rant about the cab driver being a serial killer in the very first Sherlock episode A Study in Pink The other story was by Lee Child an author I normally don t enjoy However his story also with a modern setting involving an FBI agent and the murder of an American in Baker Street was delightful If you are just after interesting detective stories then by all means pick up a copy of A Study in Sherlock but I would steer any Sherlockian or Sherlock fan well away from it
