      My 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
      triples Doyle's.

      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

      <http://gutenberg.net.au/ebooks05/0500391h.html> Dr
      Thorndyke Short Story Omnibus
      Project Gutenberg Australia a treasure-trove of literature treasure found
      hidden with no evidence of ownership
      View on gutenberg.net.au
      <http://gutenberg.net.au/ebooks05/0500391h.html> Preview by Yahoo
      Interested members can start off with their reading and inform us whether
      they match up to the Canon or not!
