The MX Book of New Sherlock Holmes Stories Part III 1896 to 1929Book of MOBI #241 Part three of a record breaking three volume collection bringing together over sixty of the world s leading Sherlock Holmes authors All the stories are traditional Sherlock Holmes pastiches This volume covers MX Book of New Sherlock ePUB #10003 the The MX PDFEPU. A variable collection mostly good to excellent but with enough typos textual non seuiturs feeble endings and occasional content repetition to suggest sadly that the role of editor was at best titularSetting that aside plenty of period detail knowing winks to Conan Doyle s oeuvre pace and verve to make the collection as a whole very satisfying I ve already snapped up another volumeMy favourite by some margin is The Adventure of the Dark Tower by Swedish writer and historian PK Andersson up there to my mind with Antony Burgess s Murder To Music Its gnomic ending proves that sometimes just sometimes fanfiction trumps the original I have always been suspicious of scholars Watson They are so certain of themselves that when their worldviews are undermined they turn into the only other workgroup that is as presumptuous priests
