Sherlock Holmes

Anyone know if this is the complete set of stories?

I know you can get complete works via Amazon for a few quid less but these have nice covers (for suckers).

Looks like it... it certainly appears to be the same set that's advertised on Penguin's own site. I bagged a set as I've lost my single volume and I'd rather have them separate. Spiffy covers too.

Ł10.74 with postage. Good find, thankee.

Yes and no. It's the whole of the accepted Holmes canon (and the same as you'd get in the Amazon version(s)), but there are additional stories you might want to go for if you were being absolutely completist. More info here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Canon_of_Sherlock_Holmes

Cheers for that, I was looking at buying a set to give it a go, and I don't like single volume editions.
