Impulsive Reader

I'll read most anything but my one weakness is Sherlock Holmes.

I don't know what I expected.

In the Company of Sherlock Holmes: Stories Inspired by the Holmes Canon - Leslie S. Klinger, Laurie R. King

Don't get me wrong, I owe a lot to Laurie R. King. Her Mary Russell series is what really got me into Sherlock Holmes in the first place. (It also gave me a healthy, if often unfulfilled, love of Sherlockian romance--but that's a conversation for another day.)

 

That being said, I have never read a Sherlock Holmes collection edited by Laurie R King that I liked. I don't know what it is.

 

And I'm gunna be straight with you, I didn't finish this. I got about halfway through (just to the point of the adorable comic) and started skipping stories and looking ahead to see how many of the stories that actually involve Holmes and Watson. Hint: 6/15.
