This is an excellent addition to the Mammoth collection. Thick paperback, with lots of short stories of the adventures of Arthur Conan Doyles detective, Sherlock Holmes. Though the stories in this book were not penned by him, but rather by a variety of different authours, they have kept the atmosphere close to the original stories penned by Mr Doyle. Also there are informative notes at the beginning of most of the stories, explaining their origins, and a very informative chronological indexing of available Sherlock Holmes stories at the back of the book. If you like bite size chunks of Holmes, rather than complete novels you won't be disappointed with this book. As Sherlock Holmes would say, the game is afoot!
