A Study in Sherlock
Laura Lippman 的故事跟福尔摩斯根本沾不上边，形神都毫无交集，显然她并非福迷，也不知怎么被赶鸭架拉进这本集子。
SJ Rozan 版的 “歪唇男人” 其实情节过于七扭八弯了，不太合逻辑，但是很有趣，因为剧情里的人物是在伦敦开烟馆儿的中国老头。其中一个人说："The subtlety of the mind of Mr. Sherlock Holmes could lead one to believe he is not an Englishman at all, but one of us."
至今最好看的一篇是 Neil Gaiman 的 The Case of Death and Honey. 不是侦探小说，而是他擅长的半奇幻类，但是因为他对福尔摩斯太熟也太迷，不让人觉得突兀。我尤其喜欢他的“传说”风格。巧合的是，Rozan 的故事一开篇就是“陈和手执白瓷茶杯说...”，Gaiman 的故事一开头第二段是：“这些事发生在老高失踪之后，他儿子从丽江回来继承他的蜂窝之前。” 看到这里我哈哈大笑，怎么两个人不约而同地把福尔摩斯和中国拉上了呢？Neil Gaiman 多半刚从丽江玩过回来，记忆犹新，故事里不是张寡妇就是木耳银鱼汤。
