    1. Elementary, my dear Cthulhu.Neil Gaiman’s 2003 short story A Study in Emerald won the 2004 Hugo Award for Best Story.Because it is a really good story.Is it Sherlock Holmes? Is it Lovecraft? Is it both? I also had to remind myself that this was Gaiman and not China Mieville.Set in an alternate England in an alternative history, this smart short work pays homage to Doyle and Lovecraft and is tied together by the inimitable Neil Gaiman.So it has that going for it.Entertaining and fun, this also [...]

    2. My relationship with Neil Gaiman is still extremely complicated, but hey, I finally read something of his that I'm giving 5 stars! Although it's a very qualified 5 stars."A Study in Emerald" won the Hugo Award for short stories in 2004. It's a brilliant mash-up of the Sherlock Holmes universe and H.P. Lovecraft's Cthulhu mythos. If you're quite familiar with both of those things, you'll probably love this story. If you're not terribly familiar with either of those things, you are welcome to try [...]

    3. "A Study in Emerald" is a cool short story written by Neil Gaiman, one of today's masters of weird fiction, and can be found for free here. If you have half an hour of your time left to be spent with one of Gaiman's best short stories, then you should right now click on this link instead of reading my thoughts about it disguising themselves as a review.As the title already implies, the entire story alludes to Arthur Conan Doyle's first Sherlock Holmes novel, A Study in Scarlet, but only upon clo [...]

    5. If there's one thing Neil Gaiman has taught me, it's that one can be original with other people's ideas as well. So let's talk about A Study in Emerald, a fantastic amalgamation of Sherlock Holmes and the Cthulhu Mythos; an amalgamation of the stoic, dry writing style of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle and the wild, beautiful prose of H. P. Lovecraft. If anyone can find any semblance of balance between the two and manage to execute it, it is Gaiman. In the alternate Victorian (they take Victoria very ser [...]

    6. এইটা হচ্ছে ক্লাসিক লেখা। নয় পাতায় যা দিছে, যেভাবে দিছে, ধুয়ে দিছেন গাইম্যান সাহেব। নয়শো পাতায় পারবো না আমি। ক্লাসিকের বাংলা কী? ধ্রুপদ? কালজয়ী? বিশেষণ দিয়ে গাইম্যানের এই লেখারে নিমজ্জিত করে [...]

    7. Neil Gaiman’s Sherlock Holmes pastiche and Cthulhu mythos mashup is certainly weird, but I am not so sure about wonderful. It is available as a free PDF download so there is no reason not to give it a shot. The PDF file is cleverly formatted to look like a Victorian newspaper with amusing ads placed by Victor Frankenstein, Dr. Jekyll and other Victorian SF characters. Gaiman is doing a sort of literary sleight of hand here, leading the reader up the garden path. Set in an alternate Victorian E [...]

    8. I admire the creative exploits of Neil Gaiman. His ability to bring something different.This was a short, Sherlock Holmesish fantasy-mystery formatted in antiquated newsprint fashion, including witty illustrations placed throughout the piece. I wouldn't call the story great, but it was still classic Gaiman, nicely presented and thoroughly entertaining.

    9. Read A Study in Emerald if interested in Neil Gaiman.If not, read anyway.It may be read here: neilgaiman/mediafiles/1) Like nearly every living, reading human being, I too have always liked the quintessential detective, Sherlock Holmes. It, however, took the BBC Sherlock to have me completely Sherlocked. It did not just break the ice in my relationship with the medium of the television and become only the second or third agent to convince me that things not so bad might happen in pop culture as [...]

    10. Well that was a delightful little foray into the mind of Neil Gaiman and the worlds of Conan Doyles's Sherlock Holmes and H.P. Lovecraft's "the Old Ones of the Cthulhu Mythos". Having never read any Sherlock Holmes or indeed anything of H.P. Lovecraft's I can't truly attest to the originality and twists contained in this short story. My familiarity with Mr Holmes doesn't extend beyond the (incredible) BBC series Sherlock. But what I can say is I liked this a lot!!! It was fun, filled with tricke [...]

    11. 3.5 Originally posted at Fantasy Literature.A Study in Emerald is a Hugo and Locus Award winning short story by Neil Gaiman in which he pays tribute to Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s Sherlock Holmes and H.P. Lovecraft’s Cthulhu Mythos.At first Gaiman’s story appears to be a straight Sherlock Holmes pastiche as a man who appears to be Watson relates how his new friend, a consulting detective who appears to be Holmes, is being asked by Inspector Lestrade to help solve a murder mystery. In fact, it [...]

    12. "A Study in Emerald" is a blend of the world of Sherlock Holmes with that of H.P. Lovecraft, and the writing style is a homage to both Lovecraft and Doyle. For being a Sherlock Holmes story, the name Sherlock Holmes never appears in the prose. While Gaiman does not seem to have the consistent mastery of the short story that he does of comic and novel format, when he gets it right, he gets it very right. The tale is impossible to predict from start to finish. It is, as Gaiman explains in the intr [...]

    13. I adore Neil Gaiman’s writing, I love the Sherlock Holmes canon and I have a soft spot for witty references. Imagine my excitement when I stumbled upon this short story. Set in an alternate Victorian London where the reigning monarchs are unearthly creatures who defeated humanity 700 years ago, it borrows heavily from A Study in Scarlet, yet still remains original by throwing in a great deal of hints and a twist along the way before culminating in an unexpected ending. I was unfamiliar with [...]

    14. I absolutely loved this Sherlock Holmes/ Lovecraft mashup! (You can find it on the author's website by doing an internet search for it by title.) The edition I read was crafted as a newspaper article, complete with ads -- part of the fun is in figuring out the literary characters who placed those ads. Great fun!

    15. 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.

    16. Wow, this was absolutely mesmerizing. The social mockery mixed with Lovecraftian cross over, only Gaiman can do that. The whole story contained a cold kind of darkness. Read it.

    17. See I always said that I should read Doyle's Sherlock Holmes. My age and mindset won't matter. Anyone, just anyone, can have a connection with Sherlock and his precocious skills. Mind it, if I hadn't read A Study in Scarlet, I wouldn't be able to enjoy this witty, cleaver than ever and it-hurts-you-because-you-are-obsessed-with-sherlock kind of story. Hey, Gaiman, was that reference to Charing Cross Road in the story just a gimmick to rattle the fans of 84 Charing Cross Road? Damn you SOB! You r [...]

    18. This the perfect short story for anyone into Neil Gaiman, Sherlock Holmes and the Cthulu mythos, and it can be read, for free, as a beautiful mock newspaper pdf file on Neil Gaiman's website. It is no surprise to me this won the Hugo award. As soon as I finished reading it, I downloaded the audio book on Audible so I can experience it again, as read by Neil Gaiman himself.

    19. 9 page short story, involving Sherlock Holmes and Cthulhu mythos and it's absolutely great.Only Gaiman could have written such thing.

    20. ¡Qué buena historia! Sherlock Holmes meets H.P. Lovecraft -es como un crossover (?)- y Neil Gaiman crea una historia geeeenial, además está gratis en su sitio web oficial y el diseño está genial. Si pueden, léanla. No puedo agregar más porque es una historia corta :P

    21. 3 1/2 stars, but I didn't love it enough to round up to 4. I read the free PDF download, and the Victorian newspaper layout, with its illustrated advertisements for potions, powders, and services, all, I think, related to Victorian literary monsters, added substantially to the mood. The story itself is similar to Doyle's "A Study in Scarlet," with references also to other Holmes stories, but with a couple rather substantial twists. Given that the story is "advertised" as a Holmes-Lovecraft mash- [...]

    22. I found this story to read for free online on Neil Gaiman's website. This was a pretty good Sherlock Holmes Mystery/H.P. Lovecraft Mash-up. Sherlock Holmes and a Watson-like character are sent on a mystery to see who murdered a royal in a study in Emerald in an alternate Victorian London. I enjoyed checking this out and you can check out the story here. Enjoy! neilgaiman/mediafiles/

    23. This was a re-read.A Study in Emerald is one of those short stories that you keep coming back to re-read because of just how good it is, and because of that soft, cliffhanger-y feeling at the end of the book where you're like "surely that's not the end?" and you hope that the author has written more in the universe/series, and then end up going into a Sherlock Holmes and/or Cthulhu Mythos binge session as a result.If you know anything about this short story, you probably know this - it mashes to [...]

    24. "Um Estudo em Esmeralda" ("A study in emerald") é um conto de Neil Gaiman que ganhou o Hugo Award em 2004 para Best Short Story.Nele o autor refere-se, como o convidativo título indica, à primeira história de Sherlock Holmes ("A study in scarlet" de Conan Doyle que dispensa apresentações), mas também a Cthulhu, de H. P. Lovecraft. É uma pequena - lê-se demasiado depressa mesmo para quem tenta saboreá-la lentamente -, mas riquíssima história que agradará a leitores de ambos os univer [...]

    25. Find all of my reviews at: 52bookminimum/My immediate reaction upon finishing this shorty . . . When a German noble goes missing, it’s up to everyone’s favorite sleuth Sherlock Holmes Who to solve the case . . . Left with a clue written in the victim’s blood . . . No, wait. That’s not right. Oh yeah, it was Rache. The consulting detective and our narrator discover there might be more to this mystery than meets the eye . . . And I didn’t get it. Why did everyone love this? I’m so dumm [...]

    26. This short story is an alternate history mashup piece of Sherlock Holmes/HP Lovecraft fan fiction. All the familiar faces - Lestrade, Holmes (kind of) and his loyal doctor sidekick - are present as they are brought in to solve the case of a murdered member of the royal family, with the only clue being the word "Rache" written in green ichor at the murder scene.Green ichor, because the royal family isn't human and this is an alternate history in which eldritch things arrived centuries ago to best [...]

    27. A delicious twist on an old favourite tale, with some signature Gaiman darkness. 5* Would recommend to Holmes fans looking for something short & fun.

    28. Neil Gaiman shows off his writing in his short story A Study in Emerald. A pastiche of Sherlock Holmes, its deft writing and clever ending will appeal to fans of Gaiman and of Holmes. Though I do not have much knowledge about the mystery genre, I enjoyed reading and discussing A Study in Emerald - I look forward to reading one of Neil Gaiman's novels even more now.

    29. I have never read anything by Neil Gaiman before. Maybe this wasn't a great place to start, or maybe it's better when you re-read it. Even though I rated this short story with three stars I still have a feeling that I'd like Neil as an author.
