“Phil Farmer has the ability to look a reader straight in the eye, tongue in cheek, and outrageously pull that reader's leg out of true. And here he is doing it again with THE ADVENTURE OF THE PEERLESS PEER, in which he brings back the retired Sherlock Holmes and chronicler Dr. Watson in service to His Majesty's government during the first World War.” — Science Fiction Review
“A glorious pastiche involving Holmes, Watson, Tarzan, Dr. Fell, Henry Merriville, and dozens of others.” —Locus
“...one of the wildest and funniest burlesques published in the 1970s.” —The El Paso Sunday Times
