"Somewhere in the vaults of the bank of Cox and Co., at Charing Cross, there is a travel-worn and battered tin dispatch-box with my name, John H. Watson, M.D., painted upon the lid. It is crammed with papers, nearly all of which are records of cases to illustrate the curious problems which Mr. Sherlock Holmes has at various times to examine."

The Great Adventures of Sherlock Holmes (1973)

I'm pushing the boundaries of this blog's pastiche only concept to offer up an "enriched edition" of original stories by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle edited by Harry Shefter. I just can't resist '70s paperbacks with great cover art, and this fits that bill!

Twelve of the most exciting adventures of Sherlock Holmes and his faithful assistant, Dr. Watson, are included in this collection. Generations of readers marveled at the extraordinary powers of deduction of this master detective––and his fame seems to mount with the passing years. 
A Scandal in Bohemia
The Red-Headed League
A Case of Identity
The Boscombe Valley Mystery
The Five Orange Pips
The Man with the Twisted Lip The Adventure of the Blue Carbuncle
Reader's Supplement
The Adventure of the Speckled Band
The Adventure of the Engineer's Thumb
The Adventure of the Noble Bachelor
The Adventure of the Beryl Coronet
The Adventure of the Copper Beeches
