AN INCONSISTENT FORM OF FLATTERY.

Laurie King and Leslie Klinger invite a number of writers to compose a Sherlock Holmes story.  The results, which include some attempts at lost Holmes adventures, and some stories using Holmesian techniques, make up A Study in Sherlock: Stories Inspired by the Holmes Canon.  Short Book Review No. 18 follows.  The volume will probably stay in the library.  The content is uneven.  That might be because the editors invited individuals not necessarily known for their work in mysteries, or Victoriana, or medical thrillers, to participate in the project.
