4.0 out of 5 stars Good for the price
Considering it was only 37p, it's well worth it! Some good pastiches, some not so good but none that are so bad as to render the collection unworthy.

Having read this with much anticipation I was very disappointed most of the stories were rubbish and I was very disappointed with the inaccuracies of the habits of S.H and Dr Watson reread the best before you try to write this

3.0 out of 5 stars Some good, the rest need research, 23 Nov 2014
This review is from: The Sherlock Holmes Megapack: 25 Modern Tales by Masters (Kindle Edition)
The best story so far actually dares to challenge A. C D's real life belief in spiritualism. I was pleasantly surprised by it, well told from Mrs Watson's point of view - pity the Kindle PW doesn't permit italics. One story has several characters refer to the deceased as "the lord"; as if praying to a lesser god - note the lower case. A few minutes research, even on wikipedia, would show how to refer to the dead man, by name, title or rank. No educated English person of the time, nor the uneducated, would dream of speaking of him in this way; not Holmes nor Watson and certainly not His Lordship's Butler. On another story, Watson uses American names for his hat and a wagon and quotes distances in kilometers - which he would never spell on that way. Britain may use the metric system for weights, however, not then, in Watson's day it used miles and still does. I think 300 km from London doesn't get to Lancashire; which is a county and not a district. English characters ought to sound, well, English; especialy educated Victorians. Some stories are also a bit too obvious.

Not bad. Mixed bag of works. But a pleasant variety of adaptations.

Some I liked, some I didn't. But for 25 short stories, worthwhile.

I always find it difficult when Holmes stories are written like this to know whether they are written for everyone or just for the USA. Some stories written by Americans are superb but some lack even the most basic research or reading. This is a mishmash of such. Some excellent stories with some very badly written so you wonder if the editor went on holiday at some point.

An excellent book of tales. I recommend it to anyone who likes Sherlock Holmes or detective stories. I do have one critism however, and that is all stories written in pre decimal times should refer to `old English measurements`.
