Customer Review

on May 14, 2012
When I found out that The Adventure of the Peerless Peer was being released by Titan Books it cemented my love for that publisher. Specifically, because the Peerless Peer had been out-of-print for a number of years by this time. To say that I enjoyed this book would be a monumental understatement. I absolutely loved it. Especially, the way that Philip Jose Farmer characterized Sherlock Holmes, Mycroft Holmes, John Watson, Lord Greystoke, and two deliberately disguised characters by the names, Wentworth and Kentov. For any fan of The Spider and/or The Shadow, the cameos by these two men will be an absolute treat, as well as their interactions with Holmes and Watson during a mission to stop a German agent and mastermind from doing severe damage to the Allies' war effort during World War I. I was nearly in stitches, laughing many times during the aerial trips made by Holmes and Watson with the aid of the aforementioned gentlemen. To speak about it would give it away. Let's just say that Farmer is my kind of comedic writer, and his timing is flawless. If there was one thing I wish Farmer could have changed, it would have to be the length. The book was too short, in my opinion. I finished the novel wanting more, to be honest. It was that good. Maybe, one day, someone will follow up with a sequel to the Peerless Peer. I have a feeling that Holmes and Watson met Lord Greystoke a few more times between the First and Second World Wars. And to see an uneasy reunion of sorts between Holmes, Watson, Wentworth, and Kentov would be a dream come true for this fan. Titan Books' The Further Adventures of Sherlock Holmes: The Adventure of the Peerless Peer is a fast paced, rip-roaring novel that explores the lives and settings of the Wold Newton Family and Universe during World War I. For any fan of crossover fiction, Sherlock Holmes, Tarzan, Allan Quatermain, The Spider, and The Shadow, this book is for you.
