    Stories written as if by contemporary authors of note: H.G. Wells, Ernest Hemingway, Edgar Rice Burroughs, H.P. Lovecraft (he did The Giant Rat of Sumatra), Dashiell Hammet and the like.

    Editor Marvin Kaye counts The Resurrected Holmes as one of the most unusual books he's ever edited, an it may be the most unusual Sherlock Holmes-themed anthology I've read. Writing pastiches of Holmes (Conan Doyle) has become something of a cottage industry, but here we have writers writing pastiches of Holmes' unrecorded cases (ones with which Watson entices readers with the briefest of passing comments in the Canon), but they do so with the voices of other writers, such as H.G. Wells, Ernest [...]

    You may have decided to pick this up b/c you read all things Holmes; this is a collection of stories written by others (not only are the tales written by published authors, some are told by actors and and librarians) *who are writing in the guise of famous authors. One example is Richard Lupoff, who was commissioned for this book by Kaye to write a Holmes story as if he were Jack Kerouac. Kaye's premise for this collection is that Watson's unpublished notes supposedly lost in a WWII bombing surf [...]

    "Famous authors" are asked to write new Sherlock Holmes stories from Watson's notes of unpublished cases. According to the introduction of this anthology, the "authors" are supposed to suppress their own styles and voices and to write in the voice of John Watson. The "authors" included in this volume pretty much suck at this.I don't have any favorites among these stories, and there are a couple I doubt I'll read again:Mrs. Vamberry Takes a Trip - "Mike Resnick" ascribed to J. Thorne Smith (silly [...]

    Майже всі записки відповідають стилю А.Конан-Дойля. Особливо сподобалися останні розповіді в книзі. Деякі з них можна й екранізувати, під сучасний манер. Впершу чергу історію про те, як Холмс вперше став детективом - студента Оксфорда одногрупник попросив допомогти, і

    A bit bizarre overall, though the concept was interesting. Some of the stories were pretty good, but several were just weird. My favorite was the HP Lovecraft Holmes pastiche. That had a nice blend of worlds.

    Cute idea. Gets a bit old, though. If you are not familiar with the authors who "write" the short stories, then you're in for a long haul.

    A pretty good but not great collection of pastiches written in the styles of a variety of authors.
