Publisher's Summary

Presenting Edgar Award-winning editor Otto Penzler's latest anthology, The Big Book of Sherlock Holmes Stories, the largest collection of Sherlockian tales ever.
Arguably no other character in history has been so enduringly popular as Sherlock Holmes. From his first appearance in Arthur Conan Doyle's 1887 novella A Study in Scarlet, fans have loved reading and listening about him - and writers have loved writing about him. Here, Otto Penzler collects 83 wonderful stories about Holmes and Dr. John Watson, the majority of which will be new to listeners. Inside this audio are tales by acclaimed Sherlockians Leslie S. Klinger, Laurie R. King, Lyndsay Faye, and Daniel Stashower; pastiches by literary luminaries both classic (Kenneth Millar, P. G. Wodehouse, Dorothy B. Hughes) and current (Anne Perry, Stephen King, Neil Gaiman); and parodies by Conan Doyle's contemporaries James M. Barrie, O. Henry, and August Derleth.

LAME

What disappointed you about The Big Book of Sherlock Holmes Stories?

Stories definitely not up to Arthur Conan Doyle quality.

"Full Cast" seems to mean each little tale is read solo by a different person who must have been really hard up to participate in this lagniappe. Occasionally two or three actors, but mostly not.

What do you think your next listen will be?

Not this

What didn’t you like about Nicholas Guy Smith and full cast ’s performance?

The performances could not overcome the thudding dullness of the stories.

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from The Big Book of Sherlock Holmes Stories?

Most of them

Any additional comments?

Glad I got it for 1 credit rather than $60

too much crap

the good stories are good and the paradies are awful. would be much better with only the good stories. or at least broken up so you can easily skip the bad ones
