This book takes care of that. Sep 28, Jose Luis Meza Garcia rated it it was ok. My personal favorites are the Moran gadlight story which happily show up in the other anthologies alsoPeter Pan, Merridew and a long list.

Top Reviews Most recent Top Reviews. A recommended read for those who enjoy Holmes stories, especially with a supernatural “tadka” added. The Steamship Friesland 3.

Another interesting combination, but I wasn’t as intrigued as with the others. It’s a great tale of classic horror going on here. Terrific stories, great variety, genuine chills: Charles Prepolec is a former Mystery bookshop owner, currently freelance editor, writer, artist and reviewer with published contributions in a variety of books and magazines.

Want to Read saving…. I’d say my favorite three were The Lost Boy in which Holmes teams up with Peter Pan yes, you read that rightMerridew of Abominable Memory featuring Holmes and Watson going up against a Jack the Ripper-esque serial killer so horrible, it was wonderfuland The Red Planet League starring none other than Professor James Moriarty and Colonel Sebastian Moran plotting revenge against Moriarty’s upstart intellectual rival and it’s not Holmes.
Watson opens to reveal eleven all-new tales of mystery and dark fantasy. Not terrible, some of the stories are good Sherlock teams up with Peter Panwhile others are horrible Sherlock portrayed as a literal demon.
