The Ghosts of Baker Street

Must. have. this. book. From Monsters and Critics:

Finally, a collection of new Sherlock Holmes pastiches based on a promising idea: conflicts between the great detective`s super-rational nature and hints of the supernatural. Conan Doyle was a great believer in spiritualism, especially as his life drew to a close. Yet despite numerous red herrings, he never allowed any supernatural incidents or explanations into the Holmes canon. Greenberg and Co. (Murder in Baker Street, 2001, etc.) have enlisted ten contributors eager to make up this deficit, either by providing Holmes with an apparently ghostly apparition that turns out to have a rational explanation (Jon L. Breen, Gillian Linscott, Carolyn Wheat, H. Paul Jeffers, Colin Bruce) or by posing a problem with alternative explanations, natural and supernatural (Loren D. Estleman, Paula Cohen, Bill Crider, co-editor Stashower).

I want to say keep up the good work. This site is seriously enjoyable. You do a really good job with it. I also enjoy your commentary on Daily Kos.

I will certainly need to pick that one up. I also really enjoyed Shadows Over Baker Street, short stories pitting Holmes and Watson against Lovecraftian nasties. Good stuff.

absurdeyes,
Thanks very much. I have a lot of fun with the site.

anonymous,
I don't understand your question. I also don't understand what blogshares means. It seems to be some sort of thing like fantasy football except for blog. But I can't figure out if mine is doing well or not...very much like my real life investments.

joe,
Thanks for reminding me about that book. I meant to buy it when it came out in 2003, but forgot about it.
