Praise for The Game Is Afoot

"If your heart belongs to Baker Street, don't miss Marvin Kaye's generous anthology."--Jon L. Breen, Ellery Queen's Mystery Magazine

"The newcomer to Holmes as well as the established Sherlockian, will relish having the best efforts of the best writers who have taken a turn at immortalizing the detective collected in one book."--Publishers Weekly

"For the thousands of readers who can never get enough of Holmes, Watson, Mrs. Hudson, and the Baker Street Irregulars, this book promises new insights and hours of enjoyment. Spend an evening curled up by the fire, and prepare to be entertained."--Mostly Murder

"Rich with thrills and laughter, this is a true delight for all students of the Baker Street menage. Recommended."--Library Journal

"As a member of the Baker Street Irregulars and Sherlockian for three decades, I think this is the biggest and best anthology of parodies and pastiches since Ellery Queen's The Misadventures of Sherlock Holmes, now a half-century old."--Otto Penzler ("The King of Bohemia")

"A masterful job...The Game is Afoot is a mother lode of Sherlockian writings."--The Armchair Detective

"A three-scoop helping of Holmesiana ranging from reprints of classic parodies to evergreen pastiches to new stories. A sumptuous feast."--Kirkus Reviews
