Summary

Thirteen authors, including Gail Z. Martin, David Gerrold, and Jonathan Maberry, come together to pen short stories innovating Sherlock Holmes, adapting and revolutionizing the iconic character.

Sherlock Holmes is one of the most iconic and lasting figures in literature. His feats of detection are legendary, and he continues to capture audiences today in stories, movies, and on TV. In this new anthology, The Baker Street Irregulars, authors present the celebrated detective in more than a dozen different, wildly entertaining new ways.

In Ryk Spoor's thrilling "The Adventures of a Reluctant Detective", Sherlock is a re-creation in a holodeck. In Hildy Silverman's mesmerizing "A Scandal in the Bloodline", Sherlock is a vampire. Heidi McLaughlin sends Sherlock back to college, while Beth Patterson, in the charming "Code Cracker", turns him into a parrot.

The settings are as varied as Russia in the near-future, a dystopian world, a reality show, and an orchestra. Without losing the very qualities that make Sherlock so illustrious a character, these authors spin new webs of mystery around their own singular riff on one of literature's truly singular characters.

Worst of the Worst

I have never been so bored or appalled at any collection of supposed Holmes stories! This is barely coherent as it is a collection of poorly conceived ideas, idiot premises and less than stellar narration. Do not waste your time or credits for this travesty.
