“King and Klinger have not stuck to the usual suspects for this stellar anthology of sixteen new short stories that pay homage to the great detective.” (Publishers Weekly (starred review - on 'A Study in Sherlock'))
“Tantalizing. Enough variety for the dabbler, together with enough reverence for the canon to appeal to the true Holmes addict.” (Kirkus Reviews (on 'A Study in Sherlock'))
“Original and intriguing. Fans of Sherlock Holmes will find plenty to appreciate in this collection.” (The Oklahoman)
“Delightful. The tales, all exceedingly clever, are sometimes in classic Holmesian style and time period; others make only passing reference to the great detective; and some have ingenious twists.” (The Seattle Times)
“Great fun for anyone who loves crime fiction. The collection is diverting, delightful, and best taken with a cup of hot tea.” (Hallie Ephron, bestselling author of 'Never Tell a Lie')
“Satisfy your Sherlock cravings with these superb stories.” (Book Riot)
“An eclectic but accomplished group of novelists, primarily mystery and crime writers, take some intriguingly different looks at Holmes’ legacy. The legacy of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s work and his most famous character is on rich display here, and In the Company of Sherlock Holmes should be on the reading list of any Holmes fan.” (BookReporter.com)
“Boasts all-new stories, some featuring Holmes himself, others inspired by him, by such ace contemporary writers as Michael Connelly, Sara Paretsky and Jeffery Deaver.” (Tampa Bay Times)
“This companion volume to A Study in Sherlock features 16 writers and cartoonists whose imagination has been stirred by the great detective. The writers obviously had a lot of fun with these imaginative and effective pieces, and Holmes and his companions live again.” (The Providence Journal)

Guess I've run down on enthusiasm with anyone other than Arthur Conan Doyle as the author.
Nice work by some, but let me remember the original author as it is- Period!
In fact, some of the main characters in the story have Sherlockian characteristics in non Sherlockian vocations; I guess they all can't be consultants.
This adds to the fresh perspective on a brilliant character with an unorthodox world view and low people skills, as it relates to the mundane day to day interaction.
There is even a short cartoon in the mix.
Well done by the editor
