Including pieces from eminent Sherlockians such as Vincent Starrett, Isaac Asimov, Maurice Baring, and Edgar Smith and from unlikely writers such as Basil Rathbone, Zasu Pitts, Frederic Dorr Steele, and Conan Doyle himself, The Game If Afoot is the next best thing to a trip to 221B Baker Street itself.
