Format: Paperback
This is an excellent collection of new Sherlock Holmes tales. Alan Stockwell has nailed the style and period superbly and his theatrical knowledge is used to great effect - especially on 'The Bride of the Moon' which features Maskelyne the magician and 'The Oppressed Tragedian' with Sir Henry Irving no less.
The stories are imaginative and well constructed and will not dissapoint Sherlock Holmes fans, lovers of all types of detective stories or those new to the genre.

After a long time a perfect collection of amazing cases of Sherlock Holmes again.

The plots of these pastiches are consistent with the famous Detective. And stories look like being from the pen of John H Watson himself. Mr Stockwell proves to be his worthy successor knowing the original Holmesian Canon as well as life and institutions of Victorian England. I spent wonderful Christmas time when reading this singular book.

What a lovely collection of stories - written in a lovely style and easy to read whether you are a Holmes fan or not. Could the author be a re-incarnation? "The Absent Professor" is excellent as is "The Abandoned Bicycle" - but the whole book is a joy and now has pride of place in my study. I hope this author will put together some more stories soon.

I bought this book a couple of years ago and thought the stories very strong. This new edition is twice as good as there are three additional new stories and an arresting new cover to go with it. What I particularly like about it is that the stories are ingenious yet by no means far-fetched and you could easily believe they had been written by Conan Doyle himself. The three new stories are probably the best in the book - it's hard to decide with so many good ones to pick from - which indicates that the author has by no means run out of steam. I eagerly await Stockwell's future writings!

There are fifteen excellent stories here, most of them very inventive and several with really ingenious plots. There may be one or two infelicities of language but I think the author captures the Arthur Conan Doyle style very well. Even the great man was responsible for using “disillusionize” in one of the canon stories! I bought the book because “Sherlock” magazine recommended it saying it was one of the best collections of Holmes pastiches for some time. I heartily agree.

This collection of original stories will appeal to any Holmes devotee. Highly recommended - I look forward to further releases from this author, who succeeds in accurately capturing the style of Doyle. 5 stars

Inspired by the reviews of others, I bought this book, and felt sadly let down by it. I have read other Holmes pastiches before - the finest were those produced by Adrian Conan-Doyle, a relative of Arthur. The stories in this books feature less well drawn characters, and was it really true that Holmes would have encountered ("20 years earlier") amateur photography and a rural telephone service? And what chance Mycroft leaving the confines of his club? Not great stories either - sorry, Mr Stockwell - my summation is tries hard, could do better.

So many Sherlock Holmes pastiches verge on the ridiculous - Holmes meeting Dracula, going back in time, into space and so on - that it is very refreshing to find this collection of adventures firmly anchored in Holmes' own time and place. It is planned as an extension to the Canon and written in an authentic fashion as narrated by Watson. The blurbs on the cover quote critics calling it one of the best collections of pastiches in recent times. I beg to differ - it is THE best!
