"Brand-New Tales of the Great Detective" have been gracing the literary landscape almost as soon as the stream of canonical stories dried out. These tales, or pastiches, cover the entire spectrum: from the excruciatingly authentic to blasphemously entertaining. The anthology under discussion mostly stands up to the challenge of churning out a bunch of entertainers while treading the same path that has been muddied by thousands before, and hence it is definitely worth a read. The contents are:
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a cameo played by Holmes, but was disheartened to find a rather mediocre mystery involving Burton's translation of an unpublished part of The Perfumed Garden.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.

This is a new collection of Holmesian stories written by a series of authors. Each has adopted the watsonian style but the approach is very different. Not surprisingly, the quality of the writing is quite varaiable and some stories evoke the atmosphere of the genre much better than others. Overall the collection is an entertaining read and recommended to followers of Sherlockiana.

Entertaining, if a little 'far fetched' at times. I liked the way some of the authors interwove different strands of fiction.
