This is a startlingly eclectic collection of stories and I have to hand it to the editor, George Mann. He really picked out some amazing tales. With 14 stories, almost everyone should find something they like. Many of the 14 authors have characters from their original series interacting with Holmes and Watson, and some prior knowledge of these books might be helpful.

These stories were very well written and entertaining.

Actually some very good short stories here. The ones featuring Martha Hudson as the main character were both interesting as they were as opposite as stories can be. I was sorry to see the book end but it only made me more excited to read the sequel "The Further Encounters of Sherlock Holmes."

Overall, a good collection of stories. I particularly liked the story "the Property of a Thief". Some stories too fantastical. Worth a read.

I read this book and thorougly enjoyed it. I am glad there are a number of good writers who have attempted to emulate Conan Doyle's great work. There are a number of them in this book. So enjoy!

I'm a Sherlock Holmes fan from way back and will read almost anything with him in it. I enjoyed the different aspects of his character that each author focused on.
