Baker Street Irregulars : Thirteen Authors With New Takes on Sherlock Holmes (Paperback)
About this item
Sherlock Holmes is one of the most iconic and lasting figures in literature. His feats of detection are legendary, and he continues to capture audiences today. But BAKER STREET IRREGULARS presents the celebrated detective in a dozen different, wildly entertaining new ways. In Ryk Spoor’s thrilling "The Adventures of a Reluctant Detective", Sherlock is a re-creation in a holodeck. In Hildy Silverman’s mesmerizing "A Scandal in the Bloodline", Sherlock is a vampire. Heidi McLaughlin sends Sherlock back to college, while Beth Patterson, in the charming "Code Cracker", turns him into a parrot. The settings are as varied as Russia in the near-future, a dystopian world, a reality show, an orchestra. Without losing the very qualities that make Sherlock so illustrious a character, these authors spin new webs of mystery around their own singular riff on one of literature’s truly singular characters.
