It often proves complicated to accurately rate an anthology such as this, due to the array of different authors and the contrasting quality of writing which will inevitably vary from one story to another. In this instance, I honestly felt the preponderance of entries were good to above average, and was only left sorely unimpressed by two out of a compilation containing fifteen entries - a drop in the bucket in such a large volume. Many were quite memorable, and one in particular has stuck with me over a month after my initial reading.

Overall a nice collection of stories!!

Overall this was a very good set of Holmes stories. I don't care for The Strange Death of Sherlock Holmes - I thought it was crap but all the other stories were are least a 7.0 to 8.0 out of 10. In fact three of stories (The Mystery of the Red City, The Case of the Maltese Catacombs & The Climbing Man) were top notch - 9 out of 10 stars!!

Pretty Nicely Done.

These are good, strong stories well created and will hold the readers' attentions. The writers have mastered the art of expressing their stories in manners that reflect Conan Doyle at his best. Although some of the narratives sag a bit in places, as noted, overall the quality is very high. One rather loud disclaimer: Amazon executives no doubt gleefully know that keeping me up to date on the latest Holmes/Watson offerings will result in many of them ending up in my shopping cart. There are some realms where I draw the line. Any review where the author mixes Holmes/Watson with supernatural elements will not end up in my shopping cart. Neither will those including true romance scenarios where is Holmes is married, pining away in love or such. Thus, the series titled 'Sherlock Holmes In Love' will remain away fro my collection. Another series operates on the premise that Holmes and Watson are involved in a gay relationship. I consider that series to be well and good for those who swing that direction. My first desire when receiving yet another Holmes/Watson book is I can count on being engrossed in an excellent story.

I loved this book

I loved this book. Everyone has their favorite story, mine was The Lunacy of Celestine Blot, but I enjoyed them all. Check out also the story Comfort of the Seine in the book Gaslight Arcanum: Uncanny Tales is Sherlock Holmes. Wonderful stuff.

Sherlock Holmes is excellent read
