    One thought on “Associates of Sherlock Holmes”

    1. Associates of Sherlock Holmes edited by George Mann is a very interesting anthology Each story is about, or from the point of view of, someone who knew Sherlock Holmes.The calibre of the stories is very high, and I enjoyed all of them My favourites were by Lyndsay Faye a story about Inspector Stanley Hopkins and Jaine Fenn a story about Violet Hunter.Excellent anthology and highly recommended to any Sherlock Holmes fan.

    2. In this collection brought together by George Mann, we have stories about, or inspired by, people mentioned in Arthur Conan Doyle s Sherlock Holmes series I think this is an excellent idea there are screeds of non canonical Holmes and Watson stories, so a slightly different angle adds freshness without the need for anything too bizarre.Inevitably some of these associates Irene Adler, Lestrade, Mycroft, Col Sebastian Moran are memorable than others Clarence Barker, Billy the Page so helpfully th [...]

    3. Decent collection of short stories featuring various characters from Arthur Conan Doyle s books of the great detective, Sherlock Holmes Inspector Lestrade, Mycroft Holmes, Irene Adler and Colonel Sebastian Moran are the most recognisable names, but other minor characters including a couple who were barely mentioned in the original stories feature in this pleasing bunch of mystery tales.

    4. This collection of Sherlock Holmes stories puts the focus on some secondary characters from the Holmes universe Several of them like Irene Adler or Inspector Lestrade are quite well known, others we meet only once.Titan Books is doing an amazing job churning out new pastiches every year, as well as publishing older classics This might not be their best anthology even though some well known writers are included.It starts with The River of Silence by Lyndsay Faye Lyndsay Faye is the author of Dust [...]

    5. George Mann Editsa collection of coolly polished short stories in which Sherlock Holmes is seen through the eyes of other characters in the Holmesian canon Many of these are former clients the rest are those who simply have the cause and means to have crossed paths with the Great Detective or know him from their personal circles Not only do these Associates have their own story to tell with Mr Holmes involved in it in some way, they are all people who can no longer claim to live outside the lime [...]

    6. Audience Those who love Sherlock Holmes and wish to see him from a different perspective.Summed up in one word RefreshingAuthor Bio There are many authors involved in the writing of this book 14 in total, as far as I know George Mann has edited this book and produced the finished article so I will focus on his profile for this bio George Mann is the author of the Newbury and Hobbes and The Ghost series of novels, as well as quite a few short stories, novellas and audio books He has also written [...]

    7. Associates of Sherlock Holmes is the third such anthology edited by George Mann, with a fourth volume The Further Associates of Sherlock Holmes in the works I will not, however, treat this review as one of the third in a series, but rather as a stand alone book The premise is a simple one these are short stories told by people who appeared in the canonical adventures of Sherlock Holmes, as such they are character studies which flesh out the sparse detail recounted in Doctor Watson s narratives, [...]

    8. A great anthology of Sherlock stories concentrating on some lesser known characters in the canon Great adventures and of course Sherlock shone his brightest.Recommended to any Sherlock Holmes fan

    9. This book was reviewed for San Francisco and Seattle Book Reviews Associates of Sherlock Holmes is a collection of stories by myriad authors about various people associated with Holmes to some degree or another Some, such as Barker, show up in only one story Others such as Lestrade feature often, though even Moriarty, well known as he is, is only mentioned in two Holmes stories.Sherlock Holmes is a favourite literary and film character, whose stories have become comfort reading for me when stre [...]

    10. I was given an ARC of this book by the publisher in exchange for an honest review.I m a huge fan of Sherlock Holmes I ve seen most of the various TV adaptions including movies based on Conan Doyle s own stories and recent versions including Sherlock I ve read a huge amount of Conan Doyle s stories The Hound of the Baskervilles is one of my favourite books of all times I leapt at the chance to read an ARC of Associates of Sherlock Holmes.I really enjoyed Associates of Sherlock Holmes I liked the [...]

    11. I am a glutton for Sherlock Holmes stories and having read all the canonical books except the Casebook of Sherlock Holmes, which i hear is not that good , I can only satiate myself with the pastiches on the Great Detective Thankfully there are millions of them out there, and though many of them aren t good, some of them come close to the spirit of the canon Thankfully, this collection is one of the better ones mostly with some great, some good and some so so I think only one of the stories was a [...]

    12. Associates of Sherlock Holmes is a thoroughly enjoyable collection of pastiches starring the famous literary detective This is a refreshing new take, telling each tale from the perspective of canonical characters, the plots are engaging, fun and varied The tone of the collection is reminiscent of Kim Newman s Moriarty and the Hound of the D Urbervilles another book that is equally as enjoyable George Mann s ability to deliver an even spread of quality throughout is of note, presenting a well bal [...]

    13. I liked the concept of taking minor characters from the Holmes stories and letting them take center stage, although I felt that Mycroft and Lestrade should have been off limits, as they re not exactly minor Still, the stories were well imagined and executed, and made for an enjoyable read.

    14. Like all short story collections, there were ones I liked better than others This probably would have been enjoyable were I a bigger Sherlock Holmes fan.

    15. A collection of short stories written from the perspective of minor characters in Sherlock Holmes mysteries.

    16. A series of short stories written from the perspective of supportive characters in original Holmes stories Well done.

    18. Each story in this collection is told from the POV of an associate of Sherlock Holmes We hear from Stanley Hopkins courtesy of Lyndsey Faye , Mycroft, Lestrade, Moran, Billy the Page, and even Irene Adler Some of the tales are enjoyable than others I particularly liked the Hopkins story, as well as the one from Billy Humphry, actually all the pages are called Billy over the years.

    19. I won this book through A really great anthology of the Great Sherlock Holmes and associates A really fun read for any mystery fan
