Quotes

'Lyndsay Faye, one of the most exhilarating voices in fiction today, has come home to Baker Street in this essential new collection. Read at once if convenient – if inconvenient read all the same'

Daniel Stashower

'Unlike any Holmes collection I have ever read [...] <i>Observations by Gaslight</i> is so authentic and real that readers will practically be able to see the dark smoke billowing from the chimney tops and smell the lamplighter's oil as he lights each gaslight in London. Faye is brilliant and makes me wish I had thought of this idea first!'

Bookreporter

'Faye is an expert on all things Sherlockian, she has unparalleled flair. You think you know Lomax the sub-librarian? Well, THINK AGAIN'

CrimeReads

'Nuance, wit, and clever plotting make this a superior version of George Mann's Associates of Sherlock Holmes anthologies. Sherlockians will clamor for a sequel'
