Make new friends but keep the old; one is silver and the other gold.

Barrie Roberts has written several good Sherlock Holmes books. Is the word you are thinking of pastiche?

It's hard to decide, but my favorite Holmes story might be The Adventure of the Devil's Foot. Mycroft is one of my favorite characters, namely because he's Sherlock, but lazy. I think that people still love him because he's something we can all understand, but never be. We can see his reasoning, but we can't reproduce it when we try it ourselves. At least, not so quickly and skillfully.
