4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent research and selection, 24 Oct. 2009
This review is from: The Mammoth Book of New Sherlock Holmes Adventures (Paperback)
This is a well-researched and excellently selected collection of stories by many authors. The ordering is based upon the chronology of the life of Sherlock Holmes as reconstructed by the editor who makes considerable contributions to the text thereby.

The only reason I didn't give this five stars is because a few (a very few) of the selections were not really good enough, though all are to a high standard. The best thing about this book is that every contribution is placed into the Doyle canon at least plausibly, and this collection certainly succeeds in extending what we can know of Holmes outside of Dr. Watson's original published accounts in a credible and refined manner.
