Shadows Over Baker Street

I must admit that I have had few dealings with Sherlock Holmes, one of the world’s most famous detectives, being one who favors the supernatural to the rational. However, a friend of mine kindly provided me with a short story-collection called Shadows Over Baker Street, in which Arthur Conan Doyle’s familiar characters have been thrown into the dark, surreal and sinister world of H. P. Lovecraft.

To place a logic-freak like Holmes in a Lovecraftian environment makes for a quite interesting read, and I highly recommend this book to both Doyle-fans and Lovecraft-fans, and everyone else for that matter. And the collection includes short stories by such authors as Neil Gaiman and Poppy Z. Brite.

Elementary!
