I understand now that I prefer the original canon. I don't need the same details rewritten a thousand times by different authors.

I would highly recommend it to any other fan looking for variety past Doyle. I read most of it and those stories I did enjoy.

Though upon borrowing it from the library, I learned I prefer the originals or single stories in a single book form, just not so many all in one place. ( )
