Re: The Essential Arthur Conan Doyle Adventures

Interesting, selling the original stories under the "Sherlock" brand. Which ones are in it?

Re: The Essential Arthur Conan Doyle Adventures

A Study In Scarlet
The Sign of Four
A Scandal in Bohemia
The Red-Headed League
A Case of Identity
The Man with the Twisted Lip
The Blue Carbuncle
The Speckled Band
Silver Blaze
The Yellow Face
The Musgrave Ritual
The Greek Interpreter
The Final Problem
The Hound of the Baskervilles
The Empty House
Charles Augustus Milverton
The Bruce-Partington Plans
The Devil’s Foot
The Dying Detective

I'm not sure it was worth buying this book for the introductions by Steven and Mark (they're barely a paragraph-long quote per story), but I was mainly after a good collection of the best ACD stories and a pretty cover

Re: The Essential Arthur Conan Doyle Adventures

Well, either way I hope you enjoy reading them.  I've only read The Sign of (the) Four and The Hound of the Baskervilles so far, and I liked them (especially Hound).
It ooks like a good list, there, and the photo is deceiving of how much the book contains.

Re: The Essential Arthur Conan Doyle Adventures

I read all the stories this year but I had borrowed the books from the library or read them online, so I wanted my own copy (but not the complete collection, I didn't like all of them.)

Here's a photo to give you an idea on the inside

Re: The Essential Arthur Conan Doyle Adventures

That picture brings back the fondest of memories for me...
That was the first Conan Doyle I read.

Re: The Essential Arthur Conan Doyle Adventures

It was the first one I read as well.

Re: The Essential Arthur Conan Doyle Adventures

Oh I've just spotted this thread in the listing and didn't realise I'd already contributed.
So I bought myself this for Christmas and have just started reading it.
