"Mann s collection, and its contributing authors take the reader as close to the workings of Holmes mind as you can without actually being him." --IHO Geek

X Introduction by George Mann (editor)
1. "The Loss of Chapter Twenty-One" by Mark Hodder: I was expecting a proper Burton & Swinburne story, with a cameo played by Holmes, but was disheartened to find a rather mediocre mystery involving Burton's translation of an unpublished part of The Perfumed Garden.
2. "Sherlock Holmes and the Indelicate Widow" by Mags L Haliday: A solid story about the necropolis railway and shenanigans going on there, but nothing comparable to the gothic gem "Necropolis" from Basil Copper.
3. "The Demon Slasher of Seven Sisters" by Cavan Scott: BEST story of the book, and I would most definitely be looking forward towards reading more stories penned by this author.
4. "The Post-Modern Prometheus" by Nick Kyme: a fantastical and rather grim story that mixes Dr. Jekyll (and Mr. Hyde) with Baron Frankenstein and straight-away veers into the realm of League of Extraordinary Gentlemen and Van Helsing territories. Not so good.
5. "Mrs. Hudson at the Christmas Hotel" by Paul Magrs: an entertaining story involving demons, jewels, Mrs. Hudson and Holmes.
6. "The Case of the Night Crawler" by George Mann: again my hopes of reading a dashing story of Newbury & Hobbes were, ...er, dashed.Read more ›

Have read many newly written Holmes stories and in my opinion this has to be one of the poorer examples of the genre. Read morePublished on 28 Oct. 2013 by lambo
