Today’s Skyline and Sherlock Holmes

tqf50Extract from my review here of Theaker’s Quarterly Fiction #50:

The Wrong Doctor by Rafe McGregor
“He glanced at the copy of ‘The Hound’, which I had placed on a footstool.”
I haven’t read ‘The Hound of the Baskervilles’ for many years, as opposed to ‘The Hound’ by HP Lovecraft that I read almost annually. So, I am not the best person to judge this cleverly witty and engagingly atmospheric sequel, featuring Dr Watson and a new solution to the mystery. All I know is that it seems a brilliant ‘coup de whodunnit-really’. If it is as good as it seems, this story should be read by all fans of Sherlock Holmes fiction. This is where such fiction uncannily assumes an entertaining feel of non-fiction, which, after all, is what the Sherlock Holmes world is all about.

Serendipitously, the other Hound, the one by HPL, is also a ‘whodunnit-really’, according to this essay.
