Screen Shot 2015-12-04 at 10.47.31 AM

The Galaxy’s Edge is a bi-monthly magazine with a collection of short Science Fiction stories edited by Mike Resnick. This is not a new publication (the November 2015 issues is #17), so it may not be news to you of it’s existence. The magazine is available by subscription in a paper version ($6.64 per single issue, or $37.74 per year), or as a Kindle edition from Amazon.

All issues are also available for free if read through your browser. If you enjoy Science Fiction Short Stores, then this is a good way to supplement your reading. It is also a good way to “test out” different authors by reading their short stories.

Book Review of “Two Hundred and Twenty-One baker Streets”

“Two Hundred and Twenty-One Baker Streets” is an anthology of Sherlock Holmes short stories compiled by David Thomas Moore. It was published in 2014 (October) and it consists of 14 short stories with very different versions of Holmes and Watson. This book is available on Amazon.

I obtained this novel for free through https://www.netgalley.com for review. I must first say that I am not a fan of short stories. I find that they are simply too short!

In this case I did find the collection interesting. Most of the stores I was sad to see end so quickly. I have read all of the original Holmes stores written by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle and I found these to be complimentary of those original works. I give this a 4 out of 5.

My book reviews are also posted on Goodreads (https://www.goodreads.com).
