The Friday 56 (With Book Beginnings): Echoes of Sherlock Holmes edited by Laurie R. King and Leslie S. Klinger

     

  

On Friday's I take part in two weekly link ups - The Friday 56, hosted by Freda's Voice, and Book Beginnings, hosted by Rose City Reader.  For The Friday 56, you choose a book, a book you have just finished, a book you are about to start, your current read, and share a line or a few lines that grab you (but don't spoil anything) from page 56 or 56% of the way through the ebook. Post it and share your post's url on Freda's most recent Friday 56 post. As for Book Beginnings, you share the first sentence or so and your initial thoughts, impressions, or whatever else it inspires, and then link up your post's url with Rose City Reader. 

Happy Friday everyone!  This week I'm spotlighting one of my Spell It Out Reading Challenge 2023 books, Echoes of Sherlock Holmes edited by Laurie R. King and Leslie S. Klinger.  I always enjoy a good Sherlock Holmes story, as you can probably tell from this challenge, and this book features 17.

Beginning: 

The history of the Caxton Private Lending Library & Book Depository has not been entirely without incident, as befits an institution of seemingly infinite space inhabited largely by fictional characters who have found their way into the physical realm. 

-From "Holmes on the Range: A Tale of the Caxton Private Lending Library & Book Depository by John Connolly

56:

At least two more fellows joined in to kick me.

Holmes was on his own.
-From "Where There is Honey" by Dana Cameron

  3. Do the story pale in comparison to the original or do you feel like they are an improvement?

    1. Some of them do very well at replicating or coming close to the originals but some take it in a different direction.
