Plot outlines, and character listings for each story. Stories are listed alphabetically by author. A more recent addition to the site, this does not yet include all the stories indexed on the rest of the site, but is growing steadily.

These are summaries, not reviews, and may contain story spoilers.

What is this site about?

The site was initially a listing of historical, fictional and canonical characters appearing, or mentioned, in published Sherlock Holmes pastiches, parodies and other Sherlockian writings. More recently it's expanded into a collection of summaries of those stories (intended as an aide memoire for those, like the compiler, who can no longer remember what happened in which pastiche). For a history of the site & answers to FAQs go to the Notes page. A listing of the latest additions can be found on the Updates page.


Uh......we're not clear on that one yet, but would welcome any ideas on what possible use it might be. Many indexes exist for the canonical stories, but, understandably, none for the vast number of more recent efforts. This is an attempt to fill the gap.
