9781681772257: Echoes of Sherlock Holmes: Stories Inspired by the Holmes Canon

In a stunning follow-up to the acclaimed In the Company of Sherlock Holmes, Laurie R. King and Leslie S. Klinger present a brand-new anthology of stories inspired by the Arthur Conan Doyle canon.

In this follow-up to the acclaimed In the Company of Sherlock Holmes, expert Sherlockians Laurie King and Les Klinger put forth the question: What happens when great writers/creators who are not known as Sherlock Holmes devotees admit to being inspired by Conan Doyle stories? While some are highly-regarded mystery writers, others are best known for their work in the fields of fantasy or science fiction. All of these talented authors, however, share a great admiration for Arthur Conan Doyle and his greatest creations, Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson.

To the editors’ great delight, these stories go in many directions. Some explore the spirit of Holmes himself; others tell of detectives themselves inspired by Holmes’s adventures or methods. A young boy becomes a detective; a young woman sharpens her investigative skills; an aging actress and a housemaid each find that they have unexpected talents. Other characters from the Holmes stories are explored, and even non-Holmesian tales by Conan Doyle are echoed. The variations are endless!

Although not a formal collection of new Sherlock Holmes stories―however some do fit that mold―instead these writers were asked to be inspired by the Conan Doyle canon. The results are breathtaking, for fans of Holmes and Watson as well as readers new to Doyle’s writing―indeed, for all readers who love exceptional storytelling.

Review:

“If you are a fan of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's consulting detective series, you owe it to yourself to read this collection. I found myself laughing with delight, and turning pages with trembling fingers, driven to see what came next as each new author spun a tale related, in some way, to Conan Doyle's immortal characters. The reader is sure to be amazed, delighted and entertained from one end of the book to the other.”
- The Oklahoman

“A most enjoyable and intriguing book”
- The Washington Times

“Every fan will find different reasons to cheer. And they'll all marvel at the inventive range of this salute to the greatest of all fictional detectives.”
- Kirkus Reviews

“A winner for fans of classic mysteries and a complete joy for Holmes fanatics.”
- Bookreporter

“A treasure.”
- Newark Star-Ledger

“This new anthology will obviously appeal to long-time fans of Holmes, as well as those readers who enjoyed the two earlier collections. If those previous collections passed you by, pick up this latest and experience how Holmes and Watson have influenced such a wide-ranging assortment of authors.”
- Bookgasm

“King and Klinger’s strong third Sherlockian anthology features 17 stories from leading authors who draw on Conan Doyle’s work for inspiration. The end result is a rich variety of entries.”
- Publishers Weekly

“Yet another outstanding collection of stories (following the widely acclaimed In the Company of Sherlock Holmes) paying homage to the great detective Sherlock Holmes. A powerhouse of a collection, sure to please even the most particular Sherlockian.”
- River Heights Book Review
