      There's one truly shocking line in the otherwise brilliant Erasing Sherlock, a sentence so unbelievably bad, so implausible and unlikely, that it suspends belief for a second, jerks the reader out of the narrative and leaves him glaring at the page, daring the words to re-assemble themselves into something which more nearly approximates to a sensible universe.'After 3o years of writing short stories, Kelly Hale has had two published'The Author's Note also mentions one novel co-authored for the B [...]

      I'm not quite sure what to make of this book. One the one hand, there's some marvelous stuff here--a rather snarky modern graduate student who has somehow traveled into the past to study a decidedly real Sherlock Holmes. The characterizations are probably the strongest aspect of this novel. And if the lack of sex in the Mary Russell books annoys you, there's plenty to make up for that here, along with a level of ugly grittiness that will either shock or please readers, depending on their taste f [...]

      21st woman travels back in time to Victorian England in order to study Sherlock Holmes fornher doctoral thesis. Excellent premise for a truly excellent idea. Don't worry about finding a "Mary Sue" type of story over here. The protagonist maybe an intelligent, highly educated woman who of course falls in love with the detective but no way she is an almost perfect, annoying know it all gal. Instead she is as complex and well drawn character as one may hope and so are the others, including a 26 yea [...]

      A cracking little novel which is essentially crack for every die-hard Sherlock Holmes who secretly fantasises about travelling back in time and spending time with their hero. Highly recommended.

      Such an unusual book! It's about a grad student who travels back in time to study Sherlock Holmes early in his career. But it turns out other people have traveled there as well, and they have a different and more sinister agenda. Holmes figures out something is amiss and starts investigating, but he's missing the critical piece of information: these people are from the future.I'm not sure of the publication history of this book. It seems to have been released at one time as part of a "Faction Pa [...]

      Full of "Mary Sue"-isms and fannish wank, the book does one hell of a disservice to both the Faction Paradox mythos as well as to anything [Sherlock] Holmes-related! The lead character, Gillian, is neither likeable nor someone whom you hope succeeds! Sure, there are probably worse Holmes pastiches out there, but I'll stake my nose on it that none of them will be as bad as this drek! 100% certifiably AVOIDABLE! 'Nuff said!

      First three quarters of this book were incredible and blew my mind. Fascinating idea well executed. Not sure why but the last part jarred for me - maybe it felt a little rushed, or maybe I didn't want Rose to go, or maybe just not quite as magical and more violent.

      Unbelievably awesome!This book is a must-read. Time travel, Sherlock Holmes as you've never seen him, a believable heroine and steamy love scenes. Where's the sequel??The writing is lovely, the story engaging and flawless. I loved this book.

      Quite good. Minimal Faction mentions. The kind of ending you generally see in short stories.
