The Mammoth Book of the Adventures of Moriarty

3 Jul

An excellent book of short stories involving Sherlock Holmes arch enemy Professor James Moriarty, edited by Maxim Jakubowski.

Some stories also feature Colonel Sebastian Moran, Sherlock Holmes, John Watson, and Mycroft Holmes.

Some stories propose a reversal of canon where it is Moriarty who survives the Reichenbach Falls.  Moriarty as a child, as a young man, as a very old man.  The possibilities are endless, and also entertaining.

Unusually for an anthology, the story quality was high through out.

My favourite stories were by:
Priscilla Masters
Keith Moray
David Stuart Davies

All in all an excellent anthology.  Highly recommended.
