If you’re a hardcore Sherlockian then you will either love the enthusiasm and creative ideas in this anthology or dislike it with the same passion. Some of these pieces or authors take the global favourites and twist, turn and reinvent them.
Personally I can say some of them spoke to me and others didn’t. However I can appreciate both the idea behind the anthology and the abundance of creativity that has gone into it.
The book is edited and introduced by David Thomas Moore and below are the stories featured in the anthology. I have also added the author of the piece and their websites, so readers can have a look at the writers other work.

Prepare to be surprised, creeped out, shocked and to have a few laughs. I really enjoyed the way one author put the helpful little old loyal Hudson right smack bang in the middle in a new role.
