Reading List: Sherlock Holmes Pastiche Novels


 The Original Core List Source: http://home.earthlink.net/~glennbranca/unclubables/id12.html

On the site above,  the list is color coded to warn about the awful titles and recommend some good ones. Additional research showed the information appeared to be correct to date, but I have added some additional novels and information.

This list includes only published novels or series in which Holmes is at least one of the main characters in at least one book and that are at least 100 pages in length.

Please feel free to use the comment sections to recommend additional titles to the list.
