In the Company of Sherlock Holmes: Stories Inspired by the Holmes Canon by Laurie R King and Leslie S Klinger is a terrific collection of short stories written by contemporary writers. After lengthy copyright wrangling with the Doyle estate, this creative group of stories became available to Holmes enthusiasts in 2014.
I loved the updated stories comprising this collection. Some are funny, a few heartwarming, and others, dark with a tinge of Moriarity. How happy I am to have read this book. It reinforced my belief in the creative spirit and the enduring legacy of the unforgettable characters created by Arthur Conan Doyle.
