I’d definitely insist that it be the first Sherlock Holmes story-collection you read (if you haven’t read any Sherlock Holmes stories yet). All the stories in this book are narrated by John Watson, Sherlock Holmes’ loyal room mate, friend and confidant. And without a doubt, all of the stories are mind-bogglingly amazing.

I’ve been listening to Sherlock Holmes stories in the car and think I’m going to go through and listen to all of them now. I’ve started with The Adventures and have enjoyed it immensely. One day she had been reading one of the stories in this book and Watson mentions, in an off-hand way, that one can calculate how tall someone is from the length of their stride. And so Fi actually tried this, taking various measurements and doing a series of calculations. It is hard to exaggerate the utter joy children bring into one’s life.

To Sherlock Holmes she is always the woman. In his eyes she eclipses and predominates the whole of her sex. It was not that he felt any emotion akin to love for Irene Adler. My marriage had drifted us away from each other. My own complete happiness, and the home-centred interests which rise up around the man who first finds himself master of his own establishment, were sufficient to absorb all my attention, while Holmes, who loathed every form of society with his whole Bohemian soul, remained in our lodgings in Baker Street, buried among his old books, and alternating from week to week between.

My sister had a copy of this book when we were in high school, but when she got married she took it with her. I loved being able to have my own copy. Some of the stories I'd remembered, but there were some that I got to fall in love with all over again. Written by many different authors, they all read like the original Sherlock Holmes stories. Definately worth buying!
Pretty good read.
Recently, I have read many of the "new" collections with Sherlock Holmes as the main character. While all have been enjoyable reading, this seems to be one of the best volumes available in that the stories have preserved the role of the main characters in their familiar habitats but with original plots. While not uninteresting, the collections which have involved Holmes with historical incidents or those told from another perspective other than Watson's or attempts to implant a new theme or agenda have not been as satisfying.
Arrived safely, buyer very pleased!
This collection was prepared to coincide with the 100th Anniversary of Sherlock Holmes first appearance in print and has a variety of authors giving their take on the classic detective. The most successful stories for me were the ones that adhered to the classic Doyle format and style with minor variations. The least successful were those that tried to modernize Holmes or engaged in too many winking references to earlier Holmes tales. The absolute worst story in the book and one of the worst stories I’ve ever read was “The House That Jack Built” - what a god awful premise and a horribly written piece of work! Fortunately the good stories outnumber the bad.
Recommended with reservations.
The New Adventures of Sherlock Holmes, Ed. Greenberg

This 1987 book was authorized by Dame Jean Conan Doyle, the daughter and heir of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, on the 100th anniversary of "A Study in Scarlet". The stories created a standard for detective stories that solved crimes through observed clues. The stories in this book were created to pay tribute to Doyle's characters. The last three stories were added for this edition in 1999. These are the titles of each chapter and their authors. You should have first read "The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes" and "The Memoirs of Sherlock Holmes" before reading this book.

The Afterword tells about "Moriarity and the Real Underworld", the character from "The Final Problem". Moriarity is the respectable man who controls the criminal class. [Is this a subtle reference to a ruling class?] John Gardner describes London in the 19th century and its various types of criminals. That great train robbery of 1855 inspired a movie in 1978. Criminals are still found in today's London. [Or in any big city.] This chapter omits any references to the financial swindles that continue in the big cities today. Why were there no cases that involved stock frauds and swindles? They must have been as common in London as in New York.
There are many collections of Sherlock Holmes stories written after Conan Doyle closed the canon of the official 56 short stories and 4 novels. Conan Doyle had disdain for his character sometimes (he thought that attention to Holmes distracted from his more serious work), but he also had regard and affection for him at times, and in the end remained his creator. Many of these stories have kept more or less to the spirit of Holmes and Watson in the originals, but few match the canonical grace (of course, this can be said of some of the stories Conan Doyle penned himself).

There are some well-known names here (Stephen King gets top billing, but other names such as John Gardner and Michael Harrison, a well-known Sherlockian scholar and writer, also bear repeating). Some of these stories take their inspiration from canonical happenings and sidelines, while others go further afield and involve Holmes and Watson in new situations.

For example, Harrison's story is entitled 'Sherlock Holmes and "The" Woman', a clear reference to Irene Adler of 'A Scandal in Bohemia' fame. In this story we find out that both Adler and her Bohemian counterpart in the mystery are in fact different people than original presented. It makes for a mystery within a mystery, and a nice twist.

Stephen King's contribution was reportedly done on a wager, and involves Dr. Watson solving a case first, perhaps the only time Watson solves a case rather than Holmes (albeit other non-canonical stories pick up on this same theme). In this story, we learn that Watson outlives Holmes by forty years or so; of course, die-hard fans see Holmes as immortal, so one has to accept the idea of Holmes' death. What a curious pairing of options...

This collection was produced to celebrate the centennial of the 'birth' of Holmes, stories of whom were first published in 1887; this book was first published in 1987. It includes, in addition to the sixteen new stories, a poem by Mollie Hardwick, which includes the lines

Were a time-restoring charter

Granted by grace of Heaven,

Who would not this tired age barter

For a night of 'eighty-seven,

When, as fog through pane and curtain

Softly grey comes creeping in,

Wise - immortal - strange and certain -

Sherlock plays his violin.

Holmes' violin, a recurring element in the canon, features in stories here. There is much familiar from the setting of 221B Baker Street, the same London and the same Victorian Age. This is a worthy collection of honour and hommage to one of the stellar figures in modern mystery.

The game is afoot.
