More > of Conan Doyle’s adventures of Sherlock Holmes by writing "new" Holmes stories; yet these attempts frequently fail to capture the original flavor of the Conan Doyle tales because modern writers simply don’t think or speak like Victorians.

Originally, Rohmer’s stories used different character names — because at that time Sherlock Holmes was copyrighted. Now in 2014, Conan Doyle and Rohmer are both public domain. The editor of this volume has carefully edited some of Rohmer’s best mystery tales into Sherlock Holmes pastiches.< Less
