Welcome to The Moriarty paradigm.
Eliminating the Possible uses a remarkable series of excerpts, articles and original fiction to provide the introduction to an entirely new Holmes canon. Filled with all the familiar tropes of the steampunk genre, the Moriarty paradigm brings together writers including Damon Cavalchini, Mike Chinn, Jonathan Green and David McIntee to reintroduce modern readers to the mystery and adventures of Sherlock Holmes.

One thing about it does bother me. Apparently the intention is to write a mix of original stories and mash-ups of Conan Doyle’s tales. To quote from one essay: “Writing original steampunk with Holmes would not prove our point… We therefore set out to capture the essence of the Holmes canon, as opposed to the Holmes icon, and this led us to the modern concept of a mash-up.”
I sincerely hope the authors will have the courage to devise their own stories and keep the mash-ups to a minimum. But if they do, some tighter editing to catch the occasional slip might not go amiss. In the original short story “The Intercepted Letter”, one character comes out with the expression “I studied hard and played hard”. It may well be that Victorian gentlemen did use this particular cliché but it jars about as much as, say, Watson replying to a teslagram with “LOL” (he would of course use “MOM”, for “Modicum of Mirth”).
No completed Moriarty Paradigm story has seen the light of day at the time of this review, as far as I can tell.
