As said in the Friday comfort reading post, I’ve been reading Sherlock Holmes stories in order to calm myself from various bad news and stresses. I began with David Marcum’s Papers of Sherlock Holmes, volume 1 & 2 (just okay), then the massive anthology The Big Book of Sherlock Holmes Stories edited by Otto Penzler, which unfortunately contains quite a few parodies. Those are not my cup of tea, so I was skipping them. Happily, I was saved by the arrival of The MX Book of New Sherlock Holmes Stories, Part V: Christmas Adventures, edited by David Marcum. Due to the season and timing, I’m especially enjoying this one. Since it’s now snowing – the first of the season – it’s good reading weather.
Barbara is at about the halfway point of Henning Mankell’s One Step Behind, which she will follow with Personal by Lee Child.
What about you?
