      The Rivals of Sherlock Holmes is a collection of Victorian and Edwardian crime and detective stories edited by Hugh Greene (brother of Graham Greene). There was a TV series also, back in the 70s. It's interesting that very few of these stories are straight imitations of Sherlock Holmes. It's also interesting that quite a few stories end without justice having been done, and in some cases the detective is the biggest villain of all! Some of these stories have the kind of moral ambiguity and atmos [...]

      As a collect it is very entertaining and manageable. There were a couple of authors I didn't care for, but it is a large collect. There are plenty of stories to choose from. It introduced me to a few authors I would like to explore further.

    • Josephine Waite says:

      I gave up on this; pretty terrible short stories loosely gathered together because they concern crime and are written for the same trashy mags that Sherlock Holmes stories were printed in. If you were a writer and you wanted to find out how not to write a suspenseful crime short story, this might be of use.

    • Andrew UNCultured says:

      This volume, along with a similar (larger, yet more haphazardly chosen) collection edited by Alan K. Russell (with the same title) gives a wonderful overview of the golden age of detective fiction. Although that term is usually taken to refer, at least in British detective fiction, to the period between World Wars, when country house parties were reinvented by Bright Young Things and writers such as Ngaio Marsh, Dorothy Sayers, and Agatha Christie made their debuts, I believe it is a misnomer: m [...]

      This is a Whitman's Sampler of Victorian detectives.Arthur Conan-Doyle's writing skills were eclipsed by his genius as a publicist for himself and his most famous creation - Sherlock Holmes. He was a big, boisterous man with a larger-than-life personality and a firm grasp of the first rule of success - any publicity is good publicity. When American Robert Barr wrote a thinly-veiled spoof of the Holmes stories, Conan-Doyle was so delighted he befriended the young man and helped him up the ladder. [...]

      Sherlock Holmes was not the only detective at work in late Victorian England. Others, some honest, some untrustworthy, all highly capable, were at work all over England. This book contains short stories featuring several of those sleuths.I always enjoyed Agatha Christie's book Partners in Crime. Tommy and Tuppence Beresford set up a small detective agency in the hopes of tracking down a master criminal. In part of the book, they decide to emulate some other fictional detectives. I remember readi [...]

    • Simon Dobson says:

      An eclectic collection of detective fiction largely contemporary with Holmes' exploits. It's a mixed bag, featuring both well-known and now-forgotten authors, and it's easy to see the selection process at work: the stories of William Le Queux and Baroness Orczy stand out (in completely different ways) for their skilled construction.

    • Vishal says:

      A difficult one to finish. Some of them are quite lazy affairs, while some quite entertaining. None though with the intelligence one thought a Sherlock Holmes Rival might. Yet, the era of gaslight is truly recreated in these stories. Interestingly, a couple of them have the main protagonists as crooks themselves. Had each of them been a full novel they would definitely be something worthwhile.

    • Jessica Weleski says:

      This was a fun read of mystery authors who were contemporaries with Doyle. Plenty of poison flowed through the pages, and some of the detectives themselves skated even closer to the line of lawlessness than Sherlock Holmes. One of my favorite stories in the collection was "The Affair of the 'Avalanche Bicycle and Tyre. Co. Ltd'"

    • Rozonda says:

      A very good compilation of Victorian detective stories- not all of the detectives always respectful of the law. However, this compilation , in my opinion, has been surpassed by an imitation, Stuart Davies' Shadows of Sherlock Holmes, which shares some choices, but includes more exciting tales and interesting detectives.

    • Tatra says:

      I loved this book. Not gonna lie, some of those stories had me feeling like I had stumbled into the universe without a clue what was going on, but that's just the nature of the thing. All of the stories were enjoyable and very clever. I loved the contrast of these stories vs. Sherlock Holmes.And now I am going to go see how many free books I can get by some of these authors. :D

    • Sue says:

      Late Victorian and Edwardian mystery writers, contemporaries of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, presented as short stories. An historical look at the state of mystery writing at that time and as good as Conan Doyle.

    • Cindy Winder delong says:

      Some of the stories I enjoyed, but others I had trouble following.

    • Daniel says:

      Some fascinating short stories in the spirit of Sherlock holmes. A very enjoyable read, and a good way to meet some new detectives.

    • Matt says:

      This work included many detective stories written at the same time as Sherlock Holmes. Some were interesting, but for the most part, none measured to the levels of Doyle or Collins
