From Publishers Weekly
This book by novelist/anthologist Kaye ( Penguin Book of Ghosts ) is a compilation of good-natured lampoons, clever spoofs and somewhat academic examinations of Sherlock Holmes's cases. No matter what form the considerations take, all are motivated by an obvious affection for the Great Detective. The ponderings include a reflection by Dr. Joseph Bell, who was Arthur Conan Doyle's teacher and the model for Sherlock Holmes. Also included is Kaye's lengthy "Histrionic Holmes," a study of Holmes's skill and technique as an actor. Several entries are quite obscure, including "Sherlock Holmes Umpires Baseball," an anonymous piece published in the Seattle Post-Intelligencer in 1906; others, like "Our American Cousins" by Roberta Rogow, were penned especially for this book.

From Publishers Weekly
There be dragons of all spots and stripes in this solid anthology from editor Kaye (The Vampire Sextette), showcasing original fantasy novellas by five of the biggest names in the genre. In Orson Scott Card's uneven "In the Dragon's House," a Bradburyesque gingerbread gothic, a lonely orphan named Michael discovers a magical but somewhat sinister "dragon" in the old mansion he lives in with other disenfranchised children. Elizabeth Moon's "Judgment" is a wise, Tolkien-toned piece, complete with dwarves and stolen eggs that contain powerful "pretties" capable of turning villagers into dragons. Tanith Lee's gorgeous "Love in a Time of Dragons," the volume's single erotic entry, tells the tale of an abused servant who falls in love with a dragon ring. The most satisfying of the lot is Mercedes Lackey's "Joust,"...
