    1. Not the Kindle version but there s no paperback option at the moment Short stories re reads for those from previous collection included before each novella as bonus content Jamie Wyman 4 stars overall in love with the vibe and atmosphere of the Carnival setup Gini Koch 4.5 stars over all Her female Sherlock Holmes is so much fun At first I was worried that this incarnation would be insufferable but thankfully not As usual, she had left me wanting 3Actually, I wouldn t mind of both of these hin [...]


    2. This ambitious anthology re stages Sherlock Holmes through the vantage point of three different authors I absolutely adored the first two Jamie Wyman sets her versions of Holmes and Watson in a 1930s traveling circus The cast is vivid and the atmosphere of the period is utilized in a wonderful way Gini Koch moves her great detective to Los Angeles, where she yes, a gender twist works to solve crimes in the sordid underworld of reality TV The approach is fascinating, and I especially love how she [...]

    3. first story, Jamie Wyman, Was Awesome I want second, great twist Gina Koch Loved it third I finished it it incorporated a lot of history of the times and too much I really didn t care about the characters.

    4. Really liked it,Jamie Wyman 4.5 5 Creative settings, in a carnival Hell yes, I fell in love with Crash the moment he revealed himself.Gini Koch 4 5 As I can say female version of Sherlock Fem lock in short from the fandom is a thing now, and this is a brilliant presentation of it.Glen Mehn 4.5 5To be completely honest, my favourite out of all three Though I wouldn t like LGBT representation to be much of this way seeing both Sherlock and John are junkies But their relationship at the beginning o [...]

    5. Three novellas using versions of Sherlock Holmes The first tale is set in a 1920 s US carnival and it s got some lovely character moments alongside a mystery of mysterious dancing figures The second is a modern day of Sherlock in LA and her investigation into a TV show set fast paced and really works well The final story is set in the US of the Sixties but like the original short story just not quite my cuppa tea But do think if you enjoy different tales on Holmes give this a go

    6. This is a sequel to Two Hundred and Twenty One Baker Streets An Anthology of Holmesian Tales Across Time and Space which I haven t read yet That book was a collection of short stories about alternate versions of Holmes and Watson, and this book has longer stories novellas as sequels to three of them.I enjoyed this, and some of the settings are quite clever, particularly when they make small changes to names e.g Avenue B in New York rather than Baker Street For better or worse, these authors also [...]

    7. Holmesians look out this is a collection of tales that will delight and amaze, that will tear down your preconceived notions of who Sherlock Holmes and Watson are, and linger long in memory Each tale features a Holmes who is all you know and love, but at the same time who is far different than you expect These are the Holmes s who might have been and I for one am glad that they are here to be seen and experienced.Gini Koch s Holmes is the most familiar Her playground is Los Angeles where she con [...]

    8. This book was reviewed for San Francisco Book Review alterlock.holmes is a collection of short stories showcasing work from three different authors The name of this game seems to have been to distill the most essential traits of Sherlock and Watson, and barest essentials from Doyle s stories, throw them in the blender, along with healthy doses of traits values morals of the time era in question and see what comes out.The era in which an individual grew up, and the resources of their relative soc [...]

    9. Not very good, in fact, it was a major disappointment for me I found the writing to be very amateur and not nearly as good as Doyle or even a few of the other Holmes deviations Very poor overall.

    10. I really enjoyed the first of the three novellas, read the second, and abandoned the third.C est la vie
