They're sold in two different sets: two volumes for the short stories, and one for the novels. Here are the linkz:

The New Annotated Sherlock Holmes: The Novels (A Study in Scarlet, The Sign of Four, The Hound of the Baskervilles, The Valley of Fear) (On sale for $37.77 as of this writing)

The New Annotated Sherlock Holmes: The Complete Short Stories (2 Vol. Set) (On sale for $59.85 as of this writing)

Yes, these collections are very bulky, but Mr. Klinger has laid out notes on every single story like you would never believe. It's basically a Sherlockian Encyclopedia laid out across every single piece of the canon, and there are also some brilliant introductions to each and just all sorts of small details that you have to search far and wide to find elsewhere. And really, even should you not be interested in like, these editions still have every word of every story ready to go. Even if you really aren't interested in the extras, they really are the most aesthetically-pleasing of all the publications (I should know, given I have at least eleven different complete collections alone; much less the publishing clearances I have for individual mini-collections and of the canon collections themselves--I can't resist a good cover :'().

Also among the pages (there's rarely a page that doesn't have a footnote off to the side) are theories presented by various Sherlockians over the years to explain discrepancies within the canon (Watson's injury being a classic one, but also about his second wife, and everything else you can imagine).

I highly recommend both of them and would say they're worth every penny (or yen, or euro). :-*


My library has those books! They're huge!!! They're also practically untouched... perhaps because people are intimidated from looking at the size of it. it is HUGE. The annotations = priceless!

I am worried about the coming soon holmes movie, however I would LOVE for that movie to do for true mysteries what transformers did for it (just saw the second movie and I thought it was better then the first one).


I'm looking forward to seeing RDJ's performance. I just wish they used an actual SH story. Oh well.

that date must mean they expect it to do well since they gave it a release date around Christmas.

Hi again..

Our library has several Agatha Christie books but I don't know which ones of them have Poirot in it >_> And can you recommend some books too? I've only read the Mysterious Affair at Styles.

[currently devouring literature. Artemis Fowl, the Arctic Incident!! xD]

I don't really know much about the Sony Ericson, but I ran into this while looking for an answer. I don't know if all Ericsons work the same but here  http://forums.adobe.com/thread/391680

I don't think so because the Iphone can read PDF without any kind off application. I could simply send the PDF to my email and open it on my IPhone or I can download an app called Stanza and use that to read PDFs natively on my phone.

But I don't know how it works for the Ericson.
