The titular Irregulars are serving as advisors on a new Hollywood adaptation of Sherlock Holmes’s work, a movie project that has their hackles up because it’s a hard-boiled story and the screenwriter is an ass with no respect for the source material. Plenty seem to share the negative opinion of the screenwriter: warnings with references to Holmes start coming in, and then, murder! Now the Irregulars test their detective mettle to solve the crime, with or without help from the police. I enjoyed this a great deal; I don’t know everything about Sherlock, probably just the more obvious references presented here, but I did find all of the clues fair when they were explained. Worth reading if you like Holmes or Holmes-adjacent fiction.

This book was recommended to me by a browse on the American Mystery Classics website.

This is an essential collection of truly great science fiction from the 1940s and 50s. It includes works by familiar names like Bradbury, Heinlein, Dick, Sturgeon, Kornbluth, Van Vogt (my personal favorite), and others. All of the selections demonstrate why science fiction is such a special genre.

This was one of the free books I acquired when I first joined the SFBC back in 1960 (or so). And, after all these years, it's still one of the best compilations I've ever read. While only one of the stories is mediocre the rest are well in the range of exceptional sociological studies on the human condition. ‘Re-Birth’ by John Wyndham has been published in other collects since then, but is still a concise answer to how/why mankind can hope to survive Armageddon. ‘The Shape of Things That Came’—by Richard Derming--shames us in our failure to appreciate what humanity has accomplished in just a few years. And only ‘The Weapon Shops of Isher’ by van Vogt could end the book by providing a reasonable solution to the Creation Story.

For all of the woe in the world today—and especially taking into account Ray Bradbury’s elegy to the loss of all our fears : ‘Pillar of fire’—this is one “feel-good” collection.

Well, it’s the usual: old man dies in locked room. Suicide? Murder? Was there a new will? Which of the suspects are not at all who they seem to be?
This is the first book in the Fergus O’Breen series by Boucher, a prolific critic and author.Two well-developed main characters help the rather standard plot move along. Some humor, good dialogue, and a sweet surprise at the end. This is a private detective novel, but certainly not of the hard-boiled kind. It reads much more like a British mystery than an American one.… (mais)
