5055RE: SHSI Re:: Sherlock Holmes and Hercule Poirot!
- Apr 28, 2016My friends:
I have copies of about half of the published Dr. Thorndyke books, that is
to say, I have sixteen different texts. Many of the Thorndyke tales are
short stories/novellas, so the actual number of stories runs closer to one
hundred than to the sixty of the Canon. In addition, these include more
than a dozen full novels, so Freeman's detective's volume doubles or even
As to the quality of Freeman's work, I can only comment that I have only
once or twice re-read one of the Thorndyke tales, while I have read the
entire Canon at least seven times.

Dear Shri Noufal and Holmesians,
I have never read any book of R Austin Freeman. I see that many of his works
are available at Project Gutenberg and are available at the link below,
Dr Thorndyke Short Story Omnibus
Thorndyke Short Story Omnibus
Project Gutenberg Australia a treasure-trove of literature treasure found
hidden with no evidence of ownership

Interested members can start off with their reading and inform us whether
they match up to the Canon or not!
