This follow-up to the national bestseller A Study in Sherlock is a stunning new volume of original stories compiled by award-winning Sherlockians Laurie R. King and Leslie S. Klinger. The Sherlock Holmes stories by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle were recently voted the top mystery series of all time, and they have enthralled generations of readers-and writers. Now, Laurie R. King, author of the New York Times bestselling Mary Russell series in which Holmes plays a costarring role, and Leslie S. Klinger, Edgar Award-winning editor of The New Annotated Sherlock Holmes, have assembled a stellar group of contemporary authors from a variety of genres and asked them to create new stories inspired by that canon. Author included here are Michael Connelly, Cory Doctorow, Sara Paretsky, John Lescroart, Lev Grossman, Harlan Ellison, and many more. Inside you’ll find Holmes in times and places previously unimagined, as well as characters who have themselves been affected by the tales of Sherlock Holmes. The game is afoot-again!

As with many anthologies, some stories in this book are wonderful, and some are "meh." But overall, this is a great collection of stories, particularly if you are a Holmes fan. Most of the readers on this eAudiobook were great, too, particularly the reader of The Memoirs of Silver Blaze, a lovely version of that Holmes story, this time from the horse's point of view and read as though Silver Blaze was some relative of Tom Hiddleston's Loki. My favorites were The Adventure of My Ignoble Ancestress by Nancy Holder and Lost Boys by Cornelia Funke, the one a modern day continuation of a Holmes story thread, the other a canon-compliant told-by-Watson tale straight out what could be a missing Doyle collection.
