[Summary A Study in Sherlock Stories Inspired by the Holmes Canon] Ebook BY Laurie R. King


A Study in Sherlock Stories Inspired by the Holmes CanonIn there but I m not sure I want to work through the rest to find them if you know what I meanThen again I have very little resistance to through the rest to find them if you know what I meanThen again I have very little resistance to concerning the residents of 221b Baker Street so I might ventually find myself willing Like all short story collections this is a mixed bag The best stories were not a surprise Laura Lippman s Neil Gaiman s and Alan Bradley s Lippman s was my personal favorite one of the only stories that Unsere Drei Stanisluse emotionally resonates and one thatnds in a completely different place than it starts Gaiman s was as well written and a nice blend of fantasy and mystery Bradley s begins the collection and is nice combination of Hitchcock and Holmes ven if the solution is telegraphed from the beginning The reason I m going with 3 stars instead of 2 though is because of the two surprises in the collection Thomas Perry and Dana Stabenow I haven t read anything by ither and now am looking forward to Thomas Perry and Dana Stabenow I haven t read anything by The Lord Peter Wimsey Radio Dramas either and now am looking forward to out both Both stories relocate Holmes Perry drops him in a presidential assassination plot Stabenow situates him in Alaska to investigate the disappearance of a Native Americanlder and both craft imaginative adventurous tales Perry s is the most action filled of the bunch something that is so much a part of the Holmes stories and something that the less successful stories in the collection ignore in their attempt at recreation Charles Todd and Phillip and Jerry Margolin for xample nd up with the Agatha Christie drawing room let s gather the suspects and Henri Cartier Bresson explain trope Stabenow nicely plays with the narration creating a teenage Watson who blogs about his mom as they solve a case It shouldn t work but it does with Stabenow capturing the adolescent voice and keeping the mystery moving alongLess successful at recreating an adolescent voice is Jacueline Winspear whose story moves too fast andnds with a Really moment I was ready to give Winspear another shot after disliking the first Maisie Dobbs mystery but this story just confirmed my impressions the dialogue is leaden the situation unbelievable and the solution is one step above and it was all a dream Still the nice twist about the identity of the protagonist puts it in the middle of the pack in the collection along with Lee Child s nicely done but spare Tony Broadbent s and SJ Rozan s interesting premises well written but neither really goes anywhere Colin Cotterill s a short graphic novel that s amusing but slight Margaret Maron s a clever mystery told from Mrs Hudson s point of view Jan Burke s an interesting premise with detectives as scarred WW1 vets but with too many characters and plotlines for its length and Lionel Chetwynd s which does a great job of recreating the characters and set up of the mystery but has a confusing ho hum conclusion And at the bottom are all the co authored tales stories by Phillip and Jerry Margolin Gayle Lynds and John Sheldon and Charles Todd a mother and son team I m not sure how this happened collaboration should bring out ideas cleverness but instead has resulted in terrible writing and pacing It s as if the authors came up with a clever premise and simply stopped there paying little attention to the actual writing of the stories And this is where the bigger problem comes in the actual The Extremely Unfortunate Skull Valley Incident editing of the collection or lack thereof I m left wondering not only about the inclusion of stories that don t work but also the order of the tales the stories seem to be placed at random with perhaps the possiblexception of Bradley s that starts off the collection on a high note I also can t help but wonder what other authors Walter Mosley Carl Hiaasen Ian Rankin Louise Penny to name four amazing writers would have done If Grace Happens everything had been at the level of Lippman s Gaiman s and Bradley s work this collection could have been truly amazing Some pretty interesting stories that are all connected in various ways to Holmes Like any book of short stories some are better than others though overall I think this is worth reading if younjoy creative spins on the topic While reading these it dawned on me that I hadn t read many of the Sherlock stories so that is where I m headed next As Holmes would say Elementary Mixed bag 5 of them I liked the rest were disappointing 2 THE CASE OF DEATH AND HONEY Neil Gaiman Awesome 5 starsTHE STARTLING EVENTS IN THE ELECTRIFIED CITY Thomas Perry I liked this one it was as good as a Holmes storyTHE CASE THAT HOLMES LOST Charles Todd Interesting premise involving Arthur Conan DoyleA SPOT OF DETECTION Jacueline Winspear Lighthearted and funTHE ADVENTURE OF THE CONCERT PIANIST Margaret Maron Enjoyed this one it felt like a plausible Holmes story One of the finest collection of pastiches and other Sherlock Holmes inspired pieces this book should be lapped up by those who are in love with the Great Detective and Beyond All Reason esp by those who have cherished his present day reincarnation via BBC The contents are An Introduction by Laurie R King and Leslie S Klinger1 YOU D BETTER GO IN DISGUISE by Alan Bradley a superb cat mouse piecenacted. Appeared countless variations on that theme have been played from Mary Russell to Greg House from 'Basil of Baker Street' to the new BBC Holmes in the internet age We suspect that you have in the back of your mind a story that plays a variation on the Holmes themeAnd what if these great writers read that proposal and decided that yes they did have that kind of tale The stories I read from this collection are The Case of Death and Honey by Neil GaimanAs always Neil Gaiman s perspective in this case of Sherlock s later years is interesting and Honey by Neil GaimanAs always Neil Gaiman s perspective in this case of Sherlock s later years is interesting this is not on the same level as his other Holmes pastiche A Study in Emerald The Mysterious Case of the Unwritten Short Story by Colin CotterillThis was a chuckle worthy graphic novel that I would have How To Tempt A Tycoon Savage Tales 5 Invitation To Eden 24 enjoyed if I found it in the funny pages instead of in an otherwise serious Sherlock Holmes collection The Last of Sheila Locke Holmes by Laura LippmanMy least favorite story in the collection The first strike was that it didn t feature Sherlock Holmes The second was that it didn t feature a real mystery or any detection The third and final strike was that it wasn t interesting as a short story besides that The Bone Headed League by Lee ChildA solid short story and modern day nod to The Red Headed League involving an anglophile FBI agent stationed in London The Case That Holmes Lost by Charles ToddMy favorite story in the collection because it was so wonderfully meta and featured Sir Arthur Conan Doyle as a character A Study in Sherlock is an anthology first published in 2011 The stories allegedly take inspiration from the Holmes canon The problem is sometimes the inspiration is so obscure thatven the most dedicated Sherlockian can t spot the bloody thingThe anthology was Secrets In The Fire edited by noted Sherlockian Leslie S Klinger who is currently up to his arse in a lawsuit and author Laurie R King I am being honest that I would think twice about picking up an anthologydited by them again A Study in Sherlock did not meet my Fast And Easy Emotional Trauma And Ptsd Treatment expectations Too many of the stories had modern settings and did not feature Sherlock Holmes and John Watson at allTwo stories however made up for much of my disappointment with the rest of the book One was by Tony Broadbent and featured a London taxi driver who as well as name checking almostver actor who has played Holmes and Watson had a lovely rant about the cab driver being a serial killer in the very first Sherlock The Marvel Super Heroes Guide Book episode A Study in Pink The other story was by Lee Child an author I normally don tnjoy However his story also with a modern setting involving an FBI agent and the murder of an American in Baker Street was delightful If you are just after interesting detective stories then by all means pick up a copy of A Study in Sherlock but I would steer any Sherlockian or Sherlock fan well away from it I liked the premise of this book stories inspired by Holmes by authors who aren t usually associated with the literary legacy of Holmes but wasn t ntirely sold on the xecution Some of the stories were grand Neil Gaiman s was of course fantastic but it felt kind of like cheating to include him since Gaiman won a Hugo for his previous Holmes pastiche if a Hugo doesn t count as being associated with the literary legacy of Holmes I m not sure what does and I Mountain Man Mountain Man 1 enjoyed the Lee Child Laura Lipman and Dana Stabenow chapters as well and the Jacueline Winspear than I wasxpecting to I wasn t a huge fan of the rest and I spent most of the book wondering what organizational paradigm had been used only to finish look at the cover and discover that it s alphabetical by author but why is it arranged alphabetically by

25 starsLike most story collections this one had it s ups and it s downers Honestly though most of these were rather pointless I didn t Hola Amigos even finish The Mysterious Case of the Unwritten Short Story given that aside from its basic insipidity it was kind of a cop out And I d recommend completely skippingA Triumph of Logic while several of the stories had one or two cases of mild language that one had some serious unnecessary swearing Most of the stories didn tven feel Holmes ish to me The notable Their Words Are Music exceptions are Neil Gaiman s The Case of Death and Honey and Margaret Maron s The Adventure of the Concert Pianist The first story was odd but I wasager to try something by Neil Gaiman since I ve heard so much about him but had yet to read any of his work It didn t disappoint and I ve always liked Holmes s beekeeping anyway so And props to Ms Maron for her tale you don t know how long I ve yearned for a story from Mrs Hudson s point of view And I loved the Manikam Kalbu endingYou d Better Go In Disguise the first story wasn t bad and kind of gave me unrealisticxpectations for the rest of the book I wasn t Oxford Specialist Handbook Of Paediatric Gastroenterology Hepatology And Nutrition Oxford Specialist Handbooks In Paediatrics expectingvery story to be a gem of course but I was at least Principles Of Wood Science And Technology expecting them to be as decent as the first I guess my main problem was that so many of them were barely touched by anything in the Canon at all There were a lot of modern set stories that didn t have much to do with Holmes or at least not as much as I felt needed to be in this collection Other stories like The Startling Events in the Electrified City The Case of the Purloined Paget and The Case that Holmes Lost weren t amazing but they weren tntirely bad The Greeks Chosen Wife eitherDo I want to read the follow up to this one In the Company of Sherlock Holmes I don t know There will probably a couple good stories. What would happen if you askedighteen top writers who don't normally write about Sherlock Holmes to write about Sherlock Holmes What if you wrote to them saying In 19th century England a new kind of hero a consulting detective blossomed in the mind of an underemployed doctor and ignited the world's imagination In the thirteen decades since A Study in Scarlet first.

By a killer and the Great Detective a DARKER TONE THAT HAVE UPSET SIR ARTHUR2 AS tone that might have upset Sir Arthur2 AS AN EXACT KNOWLEDGE OF LONDON was it just reproduction of dialogues between one retired Army Doctor and a very very knowledgable London Cabby or something profound Enjoyable and refreshing3 THE MEN WITH THE TWISTED LIPS by SJ Rozan one of the most famous canonical cases recounted by the invisible players who might have been behind the curtains all along4 THE ADVENTURE OF THE PURLOINED PAGET by Philip Jerry Margolin an adventure involving collectors of Sherlockiana whose names are bound to ring many a bells the moment you read them a mysterious canonical story the Drawing Accompanying It And Murder5 THE BONE HEADED LEAGUE By accompanying it and murder5 THE BONE HEADED LEAGUE by Child an FBI agent getting a chance to play Holmes and its conseuences6 THE STARTLING EVENTS IN THE ELECTRIFIED CITY by Thomas Perry a very good pastiche taking place in Buffalo USA with hints of lots of what if and really thrown in7 THE MYSTERIOUS CASE OF THE UNWRITTEN SHORT STORY by Colin Cotterill this graphic story was a brilliant piece all along with a rather novel Infectious Diseases Infectious Diseases ending8 THE CASE OF DEATH AND HONEY by Neil Gaiman after the astonighing A Study in Emarald published many moons ago the author returns to the arena of Sherlockiana with a cracking read9 A TRIUMPH OF LOGIC by Gayle Lynds and John Sheldon a Judge and a a Lawyer solves a mystery where the murderer is wiry astonishingly smart and has a profile like Basil Rathbone10 THE LAST OF SHEILA LOCKE HOLMES by Laura Lippman a short poignant piece about the truths that may be uncovered by following the path of Holmes and how they might turn out to be painful than one can handle11 THE ADVENTURE OF THE CONCERT PIANIST by Margaret Maron a superlative piece told from the perspective of Mrs Hudson and a preuel to the adventure of The Empty House12 THE SHADOW NOT CAST by Lionel Chetwynd a taut grim piece wher Sherlockian methods are applied by an investigator to unravel the complexities of twin murders and a web of potential ramifications13 THE EYAK INTERPRETER by Dana Stabenow a reworking of the canonical case that it resembles phonetically but with a lot of modernmbellishments that made it nterttaining than its grim nature would have commanded14 THE CASE THAT HOLMES LOST by Charles Todd no Holmes dod not lose a case in this dark disturbing mystery but Sir Arthur DID seem to lose his faith belief about someone whom he had used to consider as an minently honourable friend15 THE IMITATOR by Jan Burke an avid follower of Sherlock Holmes and his companions solving a mystery with hints of many adventures to come16 A SPOT OF DETECTION by Jacueline Winspear a failed case of a youngs Sherlockian beginning of a long journey towards dabbling in The Simple Art of Murder17 A STUDY IN SHERLOCK AFTERWORD by the two Archies Double Digest The Archie Digest Library No 147 editors of this anthology annjoyabler twinterview that concludes this anthology on a humorous noteOverall very highly recommended Les Misrables esp in this season of Christmas Guy Ritchie and Sherlock Season 2 This anthology is a mixed bag Some of the 16 true stories and onepilogue mini story are pointless and pedestrian major mystery writers retelling Conan Doyle canon stories with their own series stars solving the same case or just writing a basic mystery with a few nods in the direction of Holmes references Fortunately that isn t all the collection has to offer and there are a few true gems and A History Of The Inquisition Of The Middle Ages Complete Volume 1 2 And 3 evenntertaining offerings in with the blandnessNeil Gaiman s The Case of Death and Honey and Margaret Maron s The Adventure of the Concert Pianist are brilliant stories that feel like they actually have something to say about the original canon characters and should be read by all Holmes pastiche lovers The Adventure of the Purloined Paget by Philip Margolin and Jerry Margolin is a Agatha Christie Dead Season esue modern mystery with a Sh I don t know why I keep doing this to myselfThere ARE a couple of decent reads but this collection is chiefly notable for another atypical andnjoyable SH pastiche by Neil Gaiman affectionately inspired by his own Find You And You Find Everything experience with beekeepingThe problem is really that no matter what criticism writers may cast at Doyle or at Holmes not as interesting as he thought he was the fact is that Doyle put these stories together really well and he laid Holmes dry analytical deductions out with just the right mixture of arrogance intellect and humor They re wonderful It s like watching a magician pull a rabbit a white mouse a flurry of doves out of his hat That s what s missing in a lot of stories inspired by Holmes just the deduction isn tnough It isn t the detective we love thanks to Doyle s artistry it s the man So Solar Pons works because he isn t tongue in cheek he s a sincere and blatant carbon copy of the original And Nero Wolfe works because he is Stripped Down Dangerous 2 everything that the original is not There isn t a middle ground when imitating HolmesThe detectives and stories in this book may work in another context but in a collection supposed to be inspired by the canon they make a poor showing. N the back of their minds The result is A Study in Sherlock Stories Inspired by the Sherlock Holmes Canon with stories by Alan Bradley Tony Broadbent Jan Burke Lionel Chetwynd Lee Child Colin Cotterill Neil Gaiman Laura Lippman Gayle Lynds and John Sheldon Phillip and Jerry Margolin Margaret Maron Thomas Perry SJ Rozan Dana Stabenow Charles Todd and Jacueline Winspea.
