Sixty original tales of Sherlock Holmes -- which one is the best? In sixty essays, sixty Sherlockians make the case for each of the stories. Their arguments range from the playful to the academic, and are as varied as the authors themselves. As editor Christopher Redmond says, "What they have written is compelling evidence that any one of the Sherlock Holmes stories can be the best; it's all a matter of what the reader is looking for."
Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's tales range from Victorian horror, to jewel heists, to society scandals. As these authors show, there's a Sherlock Holmes adventure for every taste.
