The Sherlock Holmes stories by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle were recently voted the top mystery series of all time, and they have enthralled generations of readers and writers. Now, Laurie R. King, author of the Mary Russell series in which Holmes plays a costarring role, and Leslie S. Klinger, editor of The New Annotated Sherlock Holmes, have assembled a stellar group of contemporary authors from a variety of genres and asked them to create new stories inspired by that canon. Authors included here are Michael Connelly, Jeffery Deaver, Michael Dirda, Harlan Ellison, Denise Hamilton, Nancy Holder, John Lescroart, Sara Paretsky, Michael Sims, and more.

As with many anthologies, some stories in this book are wonderful, and some are "meh." But overall, this is a great collection of stories, particularly if you are a Holmes fan. Most of the readers on this eAudiobook were great, too, particularly the reader of The Memoirs of Silver Blaze, a lovely version of that Holmes story, this time from the horse's point of view and read as though Silver Blaze was some relative of Tom Hiddleston's Loki. My favorites were The Adventure of My Ignoble Ancestress by Nancy Holder and Lost Boys by Cornelia Funke, the one a modern day continuation of a Holmes story thread, the other a canon-compliant told-by-Watson tale straight out what could be a missing Doyle collection.
