Review by quiBee
A series of new short stories with Sherlock Holmes and John Watson by modern authors. When they follow the basic formula they are very good and some very good indeed. I have to confess I didn't find the ones that were in a scifi world terribly interesting to me personally and I also didn't like the story where Mrs. Hudson did all the work while Sherlock and Watson were basically dribbling idiots.<br/>On the whole, enjoyable, though.
