What happens when you place Holmes and Watson into fantastic, surreal, Lovecraft-like scenarios? This is the premise of this eleven story collection. The first is "The Lost Boy" which imaginatively pairs Holmes and Peter Pan. It was a bit jarring but set the stage for the other tales. "His Last Arrow" focuses on Watson which has become a generally accepted convention in the genre. "Sherlock Holmes in the Lost World" was more of a comic book but fun as it takes Holmes to the "Lost World". Some hit the mark and others miss like"Red Sunset" which has a hundred year old Holmes in a L.A. potboiler. Still fun for fans but not for newcomers to Holmes who should read the originals first.
