Cthulhu is awesome Sherlock Holmes is awesome Put them together and you ought to get double the awesome And yet only a few of the stories managed to strike a balance between the two worlds that actually works A Study In Emerald by Neil Gaiman is by far the best story in the collection and reason enough to buy the book all on its ownThough the other stories tend to pale in comparison there are a handful that a

    Kindle Shadows Over Baker Street Epub â Shadows Over Epub / ¶ yhgw.pro ¶ shadows free, over pdf, baker book, street book, Shadows Over book, Shadows Over Baker Street PDFShadows Over Baker Street presented me with a real dilemma because I felt as though such a scattershot mix of stories couldn't really be boiled down to one rating In the end however the sheer number of bad stories simply tipped things in favor of a two star ratingFor the uninitiated the book is a collection of short stories in which the formulaic mythos fiction of HP Lovecraft and others collides with the world of Sherlock Holmes We are in principle to expect Holmesian deductive reasoning to be pitted against unfathomable eldrich forces a face off that while hardly literature promises to at least be good 'popcorn' readingTo be clear a handful of the stories are actually excellent The principle piece A Study In Emerald is very strong but it can be acuired for free elsewhere in a much classier format weakening the case for the anthology somewhat While a number of other stories rise to the occation Tiger Tiger The Weeping Masks and Art In The Blood were a
