Sons of Moriarty and More Stories of Sherlock Holmes
Publisher: F+W Media
by Eddy W. [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 04/22/2015 08:03:00
This is tough, because I enjoy Loren Estleman's work on other Holmes pastiches. However, this is a decidedly mixed anthology. It mixes such a wide variety of styles that it's hard to appreciate them all. The titular novella isn't bad, but the title is a bit misleading, as Holmes fights the Mafia instead of Moriarty's organization (although there's a twist at the end).

All in all, it's not a bad anthology -- I did quite enjoy it -- but $10 might be a bit much knowing that you'll probably only enjoy a handful of the offerings within.

Victorian Villainy: A Collection of Moriarty Stories
Publisher: Wildside Press
by Eddy W. [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 03/10/2015 17:52:10
A fun rework of Moriarty as an anti-hero. This version of the character differs pretty strongly from the canon (unlike, say, Kim Newman's version, which is still pretty villainous), but it makes for a fun anthology.

Sherlock Holmes: Repeat Business: New Stories of the Great Detective
Publisher: Wildside Press
by Eddy W. [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 03/02/2015 15:54:53
A very good collection of short stories, all tied together with a common theme: a previous client of Sherlock Holmes coming back for a second case. Some cases are better than others, but all of them are true to the original canon, and the Watson voice is solid and immersive. A great anthology for Holmes fans who know the original canon, or casual fans who are looking for some solid, classic mysteries.

The Sherlock Holmes Megapack: 25 Modern Tales by Masters
Publisher: Wildside Press
by Eddy W. [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 10/01/2014 18:15:47
It has an uninspiring title, but this is a massive anthology of Sherlock Holmes stories -- 25 in total. Most people don't realize that many modern Holmes anthologies usually have a theme or a flavor, such as stories that attempt to accurate evoke the original Doyle voice or Holmes stories that involve the supernatural. These are a grab-bag of stories ranging from very well-researched and faithful pastiches to stories of Holmes travelling through time. With many anthologies there are always some stories that hit or miss with the reader, but that's especially true with this. If you can't get behind the concept of, say, an investigation into a cult of readers of bad Holmes pastiches, some of the stories won't resonate with you. But with nearly 600 pages of material, odds are you'll find more hits than misses with this collection.

The Young Sherlock Holmes Adventures Trade
Publisher: AAM Markosia
by Eddy W. [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 06/15/2014 18:11:28
A charming (if moderately inconsistent) reimagining of Sherlock Holmes. The trade is set in an alternative steampunk world, where Sherlock Holmes runs around with his friend James Moriarty (!). There are some new characters introduced as well, including a female Indian character who is sadly more of a stereotype than a compelling character in her own right. It's not remotely close to the original stories, but it's a fun adventure in its own right.

Sherlock Holmes: Victorian Knights Trade
Publisher: Stormfront Publishing
by Eddy W. [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 06/06/2014 21:05:48
A compilation of the four-issue series, "Sherlock Holmes: Victorian Knights" seems to be inspired by the recent Guy Ritchie films. The story draws details from the original stories without being too closely committed to any of them. Holmes and Watson bicker and argue, and a few times the writing is laugh-out-loud funny. The art is good and the PDF quality is clear.

If you aren't a stickler for fidelity to the original canon, this is an entertaining romp.
