Alluding to both the Sherlock Holmes canon and the Old Ones of the Cthulhu Mythos, this Hugo Award-winning short story will delight fans of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, H. P. Lovecraft, and of course, Neil Gaiman. A Study in Emerald draws listeners in through carefully revealed details as a consulting detective and his narrator friend solve the mystery of a murdered German noble. But with its subtle allusions and surprise ending, this mystery hints that the real fun in solving this case lies in imagining all the details that Gaiman doesn't reveal, and challenges listeners to be detectives themselves.… (mere)

This short story combining the premise of Holmes and the tropes of Lovecraft is exquisitely done. It drips just enough information to you to be horrifying, with a satisfying twist.

A short story like this is torture. It makes me long for it to be expanded into a book (because its so great I want more) and yet I know that'd be a mistake since its brevity is part of what makes it so effective.

Go read it.

(Short story, shouldn't count towards my book total.) ( )

I've said it before, and I'm sure to say it again. I love crossovers. A crossover between Holmes and Cthulhu is ever so sweet. ( )

This was a very interesting, rather dark take on the classic Sherlock Holmes stories. I haven't read any Lovecraft, so I can only say, the Sherlock Holmes-esque part of the story was great. ( )

Sherlock Cthulhu is a very Gaimanishly Gothic mix. ( )

A Sherlock Holmes story set in an alternative timeline where the Great Old Ones (cf Lovecraft) returned in the Middle Ages and have ruled the world ever since, despite the best efforts of the Restorationists who want to put mankind's destiny back in its own hands.

I would undoubtedly have appreciated it more if I'd been more into Holmesiana, but I liked it well enough as it is. Definitely worth trying if you're into both Doyle and Lovecraft.

Fresh from their stupendous European tour, where they performed before several of the CROWNED HEADS OF EUROPE, garnering their plaudits and praise with magnificent dramatic performances, combining both COMEDY and TRAGEDY, the Strand Players wish to make it known that they shall be appearing at the Royal Court Theatre, Drury Lane, for a LIMITED ENGAGEMENT in April, at which they will present "My Look-Alike Brother Tom!" "The Littlest Violet-Seller" and "The Great Old Ones Come," (this last an Historical Epic of pageantry and delight); each an entire play in one act!
It is the immensity, I believe. The hugeness of things below. The darkness of dreams.
