Pastiches & Parodies

From The Arthur Conan Doyle Encyclopedia

Jump to: navigation, search

Pastiches of Conan Doyle works are mostly Sherlock Holmes stories written by other authors and as such don't belong to the official Canon written by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. Parodies are humorous stories where the name of Holmes and Watson are changed (like Picklock Holes & Potson).

There were pastiches very early when Conan Doyle was still alive. Conan Doyle himself has wrote some pastiches : The unofficial Sherlock Holmes stories, and his own son Adrian has wrote twelve : The Exploits of Sherlock Holmes.

List of pastiches and parodies

Parodies have the parodic character names mentioned, else the characters are Sherlock Holmes and Watson
