Sherlock Holmes and the Nine-Dragon Sigil by Tim Symonds Review
Nov 18th, 2016 by Aldouspi

sherlock-holmes-nine-dragon-sigil
While it always fun, yet commonplace, to read a Sherlock Holmes story where London is the setting, it is a little bit rarer and more of a treat when readers are taken to exotic places where we get a chance to discover a place and history now all but forgotten.

Holmes has retired to the Sussex Downs to care for bees and Watson separated from his friend takes a lonely trip to China. But the two of them are still destined to have adventures together...

It's the year 1906. Rumors abound that a deadly plot is hatching - not in the fog-ridden back-alleys of London's Limehouse district or the sinister Devon moors of the Hound of the Baskervilles, but in faraway Peking. Holmes's task - discover whether such a plot exists and if so, foil it. But are the assassins targeting the young and progressive Ch'ing Emperor or his imperious aunt, the fearsome Empress Dowager Cixi? The murder of either could spark a civil war. The fate of China and the interests of Britain's vast Empire in the Orient could be at stake.

Holmes and Watson take up the mission with their customary confidence until they find they are no longer in the familiar landscapes of Edwardian England. Instead, they tumble into the Alice In Wonderland world of the Forbidden City."

This is author, Symonds' fifth Sherlock Holmes novel.

A Reader's Comment: Sherlock Holmes and the Nine Dragon Sigil is a mystery/crime novel worthy of the Sherlock Holmes title. I recommend this for any and all fans of Chinese settings, historical fiction, mystery, crime, thriller, and Sherlock Holmes. It covers a vast range of topics from old English apparatus's to the chaotic imagery of two men wandering around what feels like a whole other world!

Don't miss out on this new and attention capturing read! You'll be flipping the pages so fast you won't realize it's over until you've reached the satisfying "Finis!"

Sherlock Holmes and the Round Table Adventure by Joseph W Svec III
Nov 13th, 2016 by Aldouspi

sherlock-holmes-round-table

We all know of King Arthur and the knights of the round table, but who would expect a knight from Camelot to visit Sherlock Holmes...

"Merlin predicted you would say that." When a knight from the Round Table of Camelot bursts into 221-B Baker Street demanding the help of Sherlock Holmes. And there begins the oddest, most mystical adventure Holmes and Watson have ever experienced. Merlin himself, has called the great detective and his scribe back through time, to solve a vexing problem.

England's greatest Poet Laureate is missing! A Unicorn leads the way through the portal in the standing stones, and waiting for them are a series of challenges unlike anything they have ever encountered before, as well as Pixies, Gnomes, Hobgoblins, a dragon, an enchanted mirror, a very odd chess match, an underground labyrinth, King Arthur, and his Round Table, and the most infamous sorceress of history and myth, Morgan le Fey!

Plot twists abound, as logic and rational thinking collide head on with myth and magic, resulting in Sherlock crafting a masterful scheme that echoes all the way down through history. Brace your selves for a most fascinating and enjoyable tale.

In Joseph Svec III’s first two Holmes novels, the author has had Holmes travel to Wonderland seeking Alice and Lewis Carroll and then under the sea on the Nautilus searching for Jules Verne. Readers of those two books, will be glad to find Holmes is traveling backwards in time to the days of King Arthur to seek out Alfred Lord Tennyson!

Sherlock Holmes in Russia by Alex Auswaks Review
Sep 16th, 2016 by Aldouspi

sherlock-holmes-in-russia

Here is a review and look at the collection of Sherlock Holmes pastiches entitled "Sherlock Holmes in Russia" translated by Alex Auswaks.The book contains 7 stories, two written by P. Orlovetz and 5 stories by P. Nitikin. These stories were written in the around 1905 - 1910, in what were the equivalent of "penny dreadfuls" in Russia. These stories were not authorized and were published without regard to copyright protection at that time.

When I first bought the book, I imagined it was going to contain modern pastiches from a modern Russia. Instead, I read seven stories that reflect the Russian society of the early 20th century. And that has a certain fascination. Of course, there is also the confusion of how Russians name themselves that anyone who has read "War and Peace" is familiar with. But as a long time reader I have learned to ignore such literary distractions and still enjoy what is presented.

The Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson that appears in these stories are not your usual characters - they are oddly flavored in not fully realized charicatures. While still recognizable, I have never read a Holmes story before where Sherlock Holmes is so willing to receive a fee...

The book is readable and the stories have their moments - twice a story ends with Holmes disappearing in a river. These are not great stories, though, and if you are looking for great pastiches, buy some other book first. For Sherlock Holmes collectors, though, you will not mind having this in your library.

The Rating:  ... This book has a rating of 3 "Pipes." Readers will enjoy the stories, if they look at the book as a collection of Sherlockian oddities, rather than being great stories.

More information from Amazon:

Sherlock Holmes in Russia

Thanks to the Sherlockian historian George Piliev and translator Alex Auswaks, this remarkable collection of seven Russian Sherlock Holmes stories is now available in English for the first time. Piliev tells the fascinating story of how these tales came to be written, in the context of the Sherlockian phenomenon in Russia. He explains how Holmes reached an even greater audience when Russian writers decided to transport him and Watson from Baker Street to Russia, on the premise that they traveled widely in the country and became fluent in the language.

Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson traveled the length of Russia solving the most difficult and unimaginable cases and pursued all the while by an implacable Russian Moriarty. Instead of mainly dealing with murders, these stories are more diverse, covering kidnapping, a strange problem in a shop, theft, and corruption.

Sherlock Holmes and the Menacing Metropolis by Allan Mitchell Review
Jun 7th, 2016 by Aldouspi

Here is a recent Sherlock Holmes pastiche written in poetic stanzas that has come to my attention...

Sherlock Holmes and the Menacing Metropolis

After Holmes has rid the moors of the huge grizzly bear that was wantonly killing livestock, Holmes returned to London, only to discover that his reputation had been shredded no less than the sheep on the moors. He concludes that the diabolical mind behind the menace is still very much in evidence. Could Moriarty have survived the fall? Was he back and seeking revenge? Holmes' plan for his retirement was complete, but once his mind had been restored, he realized that he had to finish his work, once and for all.

We discover that the Great Metropolis harbors evil and deviltry far more sinister than Dartmoor's menacing moors could offer - it is not for nothing that Watson describes London as the great cesspool draining the Empire of its dregs. Its evil stems from the hearts of the most heartless of men, evil against which a group of stalwart Londoners is determined to act. Knowledge is power and forewarned is forearmed, it is said, but fore-knowledge is fragile and Sherlock must balance probability with instinct, caution with decisiveness, when warned of impending disaster for both City and Realm.

Allan Mitchell's stirring stanzas of reeling rhyme once again stretch back to an earlier era to witness the never-ending battle between Sherlock Holmes and the Menacing Metropolis.

Actual Customer Comment: Alan Mitchell first brought us the epic Sherlock Holmes poem in the form of “The Menacing Moors.” Now the author/poet returns to that format in the sequel, “The Menacing Metropolis”.

With events that begin immediately following the previous book, Holmes and Watson are back in London after Holmes’s recent sojourn to Sussex. They have learned that Professor Moriarty, believed to be dead, may be alive. Whoever has left a taunting note on the door of 221 Baker Street certainly wants them to think so.

With Watson’s invitation into a secret crime-fighting society, the investigation begins in earnest.

Actual Customer Comment: I enjoyed the book, but I have said before and I say again, poetry is made to be read aloud. I read the entire 170 pages aloud over two days. The cadence at times reminded me of The Night before Christmas, and sometimes of Dr. Seuss, but the story is definitely there!

Holmes detects the presence of a devious mind behind the events of The Menacing Moors. He wonders whether or not Moriarty could possibly be alive. Watson reminds Holmes that Moriarty had a brother, Colonel James Moriarty who had defamed Holmes in the newspapers following Professor Moriarty died at Reichenbach Falls. Then there is Colonel Moran. He is supposed to be in prison, but is discovered to have escaped. Nothing really is a deciding factor in determining who the mastermind really is, but Holmes and a group called The Tower are determined to find out!
