      I've been spending free time recently reading stories featuring the
      Forensic detective Dr. John Thorndyke (by R. Austin Freeman). The
      language leaves a lot to be desired but the stories are very detailed
      and interesting. They're a lot more intricate than the ones featuring
      our own detective.

      I was looking through the web for some trivia on the character when I
      came across an anthology called "The Rivals of Sherlock
      Holmes"[1]. Thorndyke himself is featured in one of the stories but in
      general, the list looks interesting. Has anyone here read it?

      Also, are there any fans here of R. Austin Freeman's detective? I find
      him, atleast for the actual detective work, far more fascinating than
      Sherlock Holmes.
