As is pointed out in the linked article, many Sherlockians are also avid readers of the workers by Edgar Rice Burroughs. I know I can be included in that count. Tarzan got me into reading, Holmes kept me there.
In this fun read at IHOSE, by the numbers is explained.
I also found the authors review of Philip José Farmer Holmes/Tarzan crossover much to my liking. I too thought it one of the worse pastiches ever written. It's ashame because I think it could make a good book idea if done right.
As always, check out IHOSE
