On Books: New Annotated Sherlock Holmes - Palm Beach Post

It's finally here. The New Annotated Sherlock Holmes takes up where the late, and heretofore definitive William Baring-Gould edition left off. Not only do the two volumes offer all the short stories — a volume to be published next year will encompass the four novels — there is an elegant and loving introduction by John Le Carre, of which the above quotes are a fair example, and a preface by editor Leslie Klinger that amounts to a sort of justification for the new edition.
