~ Sherlock Holmes month at Tip the Wink ~
After re-reading some of the original stories, I thought I’d try something quite different: Sherlock Holmes Through Time and Space, edited by Issac Asimov with Martin Greenberg and Charles Waugh. There were four very good stories in the collection, but before long we get to Holmes as a dog, as a robot, again as a dog… too far afield for me, so I quit reading. Instead I went back to canon, with The Memoirs of Sherlock Holmes. This 12 story collection has some of my favorite stories in it, “The Musgrave Ritual” and “The Resident Patient” plus, of course, “The Final Problem”.
Now I’ve just started another collection of new Holmes stories, this time in the traditional mould, The Mammoth Books of New Sherlock Holmes Adventures, which includes stories by H.R.F. Keating, Edward Hoch, Amy Meyers, Basil Copper, Martin Edwards and many others. It is indeed mammoth at 493 pages, plus two appendices. How are the stories? We’ll see.
Thus far I’m greatly enjoying diving into Sherlock Holmes novels and stories , and in digging around find I’m a little surprised at the amount of books I have on hand.
Now she’s started an ebook, a thriller, London Underground by Chris Angus. The cover has rats on it. Lots of them. Brrrr.
