For Sale: SHERLOCK HOLMES: The Quality of Mercy and other stories by William Meikle

"When I first set out to document the casebook of my good friend Sherlock Holmes, there were some cases I approached with a certain degree of trepidation. Holmes has a public face as a man of strict rationality, a stickler for method and observation. But Holmes himself has always been open to more extreme possibilities."

In these pages you'll find, among other things, a jade pendant that bestows great power, a fiddle that holds the key to an ancient secret, a lost overcoat that wants to return to its owner, and an encounter with an old foe that imperils the whole of Great Britain. All of them are cases that Holmes and Watson must solve, even if they have to open themselves to extreme possibilities to do so.

Faithful characterizations in fun and wildly original tales

Not all Sherlock Holmes pastiches are created equal. Some deviate too far from Doyle's original characters, and that's sad. Meikle, on the other hand, stays true to both the spirit and the characterizations -- while still bringing something fresh and new to the table. These tales feel like a natural progression in the life of the world's greatest consulting detective. The plots are strong, wildly original and fun, and that's exactly what I want in this type of read. I'm also familiar with Meikle's faithful rendition of Professor Challenger, so I pretty much knew he'd respect two of my favorite heroes. No regrets here.

Having enjoyed The London Terrors, another selection of Holmes vs the supernatural from William Meikle, I embarked on reading the Quality of Mercy and I wasn't disappointed. Holmes and the supernatural go together so well that I'm surprised that Conan Doyle never thought of it.

Yes, Holmes believes in the supernatural, and rises to the challenge.

In the interest of full disclosure, I am the illustrator for this book, and read the manuscript as part of my involvement with the project. Prior to this job, I have worked with the author on several occasions, and more than one of those was a Sherlock Holmes property. Being a long time Doyle fan and reader of the Holmes novels, I felt a particular kinship with William Meikle's writing when I first encountered it in my capacity as illustrator. Unlike the general Holmes reader, I have always felt the detective's particular talents, time period, and mythos were ripe for inclusion in supernatural literature. Honestly, knowing Doyle was a writer of fantasy and the supernatural, I am surprised this never happened at his own hand. My only guess is that it would have scandalized the Holmes fan base of the day. Fine. Such were the times. For me, however, that would mean an open invitation to have at it. William Meikle embodies that spirit for me, all while respecting and honoring the source material we all love. In this collection readers will get the traditional Holmes, but better, because he has confronted, dealt with, and ultimately accepted the impossible, and still seeks to solve the mystery. That alone makes this book a must read for both Holmes readers and lovers of supernatural horror. Treat yourself to some great tales. You'll thank me later.

Sherlock Holmes involved in ghost stories? What a concept! I really enjoyed this book. I always enjoy a good Holmes mystery & am very glad to see a new generation of authors taking up the task of writing new stories with the immortal detective

Good reading .

Hard to believe but very entertaining. Not for the faint hearted. I have said enough because more would be superfluous.

Holmes like you've never seen him before!
