A huge clollection that introduced me to many non-Holmes Doyle stories I had not known before. Some I like immensely, such as "the Croxton Master" about a medical student who earns much-need money by winning an old-fashioned prize fight against a very tough local champion. A few I dislike, mainly the Captain Sharkey stories about a really nasty pirate. Aside from Sharkey, nearly all are very worth reading. (I wonder if Saruman's nickname derives from this pirate?). ( )

This is a large omnibus edition and contains all the C.D. stories except for the Sherlock Holmes stories. Some of the stories are top-notch, ageless, others have not stood the test of time well. What else can you expect from such a tremendous output. well worth reading but I would skim through a few of them, and definitely skip "The horror of the Heights." ( )

One of the very best books in my collection. Most of the 76 short stories here collected are little gems. Of particular note - "A Straggler of '15", "The Green Flag", "The Blighting of Sharkey","The Leather Funnel", "The Lost Special", "Lot No.249",and "The last of the Legions". ( )
