KIRKUS REVIEW

Collection of more than 30 stories, by detective story writers, famous literary figures, humorists and others, of burlesques and pastiches of the famous detective that represent the highlights of character, style, idiosyncrasies, deduction associated with Sherlock Holmes. Respectful, waggish, farcical, all are appreciative of Holmes' domination of the mystery scene. Barrie, O'Henry, Clendening, Agatha Christie, Anthony Berkeley are but a few of the others, out of print or collectors' items, here reprinted for the first time. Ellery Queen has contributed some interesting biblioanecdotes in his prefaces, so the whole adds up to a pleasant companion to Holmesiana.
