How could this book possibly go wrong Cthulhu is awesome Sherlock Holmes is awesome Put them together and you ought to get double the awesome And yet only a few of the stories managed to strike a balance between the two worlds that actually works A Study In Emerald by Neil Gaiman is by far the best story in the collection and reason enough to buy the book all on its ownThough the other stories tend to pale in comparison there are a handful that are worth reading and a couple that are so horrible that they aren t worth the paper they re printed on But the good outweigh the bad and it s a bizarre enough concept that it s worth owning a book devoted to it

This anthology of short stories revolve around a central theme of Sherlock Holmeswith a twist an HP Lovecraft twist Every tale involves the supernatural and it s an intriguing mix of the feel of Holmes England and Watson s companionship The disconcerting aspect is not the supernatural as much as it s the individual authors creating future histories for each man and none of those histories connect As I read I couldn t understand what happened to that second marriage or how the various authors reconciled Holmes disappearance between 1893 his apparent death at Reichenbach Falls and 1903 when he reappears A minor note amidst the otherwise very captivating storiesNeil Gaiman s A Study in Emerald 1881 refers to the case Holmes investigated involving the German word rache although this one s definition incorporates than revenge I loved the ads Gaiman incorporated into the storyjust making sure the reader understands its supernatural aspects as he creates a fantasy world with its alien monarchyeeeeeElizabeth Bear s Tiger Tiger 1882 s claim to Holmes is its use of Irene Adler as one of the shooters on a tiger hunt in India A good story in its own right I was frustrated with it as I kept hunting for its association to Holmes Bear s rendering left too many uestions to be satisfying Steve Perry s Case of the Wavy Black Dagger 1884 includes a Spice Islands priestess a kris and the Old OnesSteven Elliot Atlman s A Case of Royal Blood 1888 involved the Dutch court with its ghostly stalking of its remaining blood royal the Princess WilhelminaJames Lowder s Weeping Masks 1890 tells the true tale of Watson s debilitating experiences in Afghanistan when he comes up against the Weeping Ones Lowder provides just enough information to be creepy but much too insufficient to informBrian Stableford s Art in the Blood 1892 is a confusing tale of old blood activating through objects Only if one were enthused of the sea would the curse begin to transform one s bodyPoppy Z Brite and David Ferguson s Curious Case of Miss Violet Stone 1894 involves a botched communicationBarbara Hambly s Adventure of the Antiuarian s Niece 1894 is a true Hambly esue tale of magic and tragedy with a truly creepy though practical ending EeeeeJohn Pelan s Mystery of the Worm 1894 was another of those frustrating tales involving Egyptian artifacts and a deluded scientist willing to risk anyone and anything to live foreverPaul Finch s Mystery of the Hanged Man s Puzzle 1897 involves the sewers and a plot to dose all of London and eventually the world into evolving into a newer amphibious speciesTim Lebbon s Horror of the Many Faces 1898 is the ghoulish tale of an alien scientist exploring the structure of mankindinternallyMichael Reeves Adventure of the Arab s Manuscript 1898 illuminates of Dr Watson s Afghan adventures with the appearance of Miriam the daughter of a tribal chief who nursed Watson back to life Supposedly she is hunting the Kitab al Azif one of the complete versions of the Necronomicon to keep it safeCaitl n R Kiernan s Drowned Geologist 1898 takes the form of a letter written by Dr Logan a paleontologist with the American Museum of Natural History imploring Dr Watson to investigate the connections between three ammonites discovered in shales outside of their expected time period and Phoenician andor Irish gods and the drowning death of Sir Elijah a geologist whom Logan had met earlier A letter expressing expectations of a future A letter written shortly after the theft of the one ammonite still in public hands and one day before his suicideJohn P Vourlis A Case of Insomnia 1899 felt like a crossover with Elizabeth Peters Amelia Peabody with its Egyptian curse of the stone and the otherworldly beastie attempting its recoveryRichard A Lupoff s Adventure of the Voorish Sign 1899 combines gypsies with the otherworldly as it combines magical religious observances with otherworldly architecture to create a doorway between worlds I do wish Lupoff had given closure to Lord Fairclough I did like the description of the Anthracite Palace a truly remarkable sounding edifice F Gwynplaine MacIntyre s Adventure of Exham Priory 1902 provides a supernatural explanation of what actually happened at Reichenbach Falls in 1893 when Holmes grappled with Moriarty and they fell This particular story Adventure of Exham Priory involves a blood curse and the Elder Gods A curse restricted to a particular family that only activates on contact with an otherworldly doorway MacIntyre cracks me up with his so very solemn revelation of Moriarty s greatest regretit s not surprising to learn he grew up in AustraliaDavid Niall Wilson and Patricia Lee Macomber s Dead Did Not Become Him 1902 involves greed and an easy path for the son of a Jewish rabbi who misuses his religion s science and golems to thwart a tontine Unfortunately for the perpetrator the doctor who signed Michael Adcott s death certificate is Dr WatsonSimon Clark s Nightmare in Wax 1915 refers to the wax cylinder which Professor Moriarty uses to record his triumph in uncovering the drowned village of Burnston up Yorkshire way It seems he stumbled across a copy of the Necronomicon and intends to use its secrets to rule the world It s a gruesome tale as Moriarty calmly sits by as the evolved inhabitants of the village destroy and eat his workmen Clark s is a frustrating story as we start the tale in 1915 when government officials ask Watson to identify the voices on the cylinder while the end of the story is supposedly in 1903 when Holmes I m guessing hands the wax cylinder over to the Home Office Further confusion is created because Watson mentions in the beginning that he received the critical telegram three weeks ago in I can only assume 1903 although it is currently 1915 I mention this because Watson concludes the story with his concern over whether he should have mentioned that only one day after he received the 1903 telegram Holmes telephoned him with a warning about Moriarity having recovered the book Holmes had tossed out We are also led to believe that it s been 12 years since Watson or anyone has seen Holmes Very irritating and not at all the enticement I assume Clark was attemptingThe CoverKris Tobiassen s cover art is a lovely comic reflection of the supernatural with its ghostly Holmes eerie

read & download Shadows Over Baker Street read Ý E-book, or Kindle E-pub Æ Michael Reaves Michael Reaves Æ 9 review The grasp of logic but beyond sanity itself In this collection of original tales twenty of today's cutting edge writers provide answers to that burning uestionContributors include Neil Gaiman Brian Stableford Poppy Z Bright Barbara Hambly Steve Perry and Caitlin R. I d love to give it 5 stars but I feel there s only so much pastiche can achieve even if it is as inspired as the short stories in this collection Now that said if they were all on par with Neil Gaiman s A Study in Emerald I d be whining that I couldn t go up to 6 stars begging for another installmentWhen I first read this collection about a year ago I liked it well enough being much well versed on the Lovecraft side of the euation than the Holmes But credit the Guy Richie film adaptation and a slew of Granada television dramatizations with the excellent Jeremy Brett for rekindling my interest in London s best only consulting detectiveWith a little Holmes under my belt both from the original sources and the distillations I have to say I like Shadows Over Baker Street even better than before Being a fan of marginalia asides I especially like being able to better pick up on throwaway references to other famous cases such as the infamous never discussed giant rat of Sumatra as well as better appreciate extended cast characters such as Irene Adler As I re read this I have a suspicion it might even get bumped up to a full 5 stars
