    Project Gutenberg is a web repository of public domain works, and has many offerings by Arthur Conan Doyle. In addition to the Canon, there is The White Company, The Coming of the Fairies, Songs of the Road, the Professor Challenger stories, and many more for your Kindle (or other device) or to read online. There is no charge.

    Happy exploring!

    Project Gutenberg was made for us all by the gods. Indispensable resource. Read all the Conan Doyle stories if you never have!

    Cion,

    First, HAYYAY!
    Second, I have a question: How good are these downloads for Kindle? I don’t think I’ve ever downloaded anything from PG to my Kindle before, but I know there are some sketchy issues with weird conversions and errors. I’m all over free, so I probably will just because, but it chaps my hide when there are wonky things afoot in my digital media.

    ETA: Lawd, I’m typing like a two-year-old today. I apologize to the English language.

    Your Chatliness, I’m afraid I don’t know how good they are: I don’t have a Kindle or tablet. If you decide to be brave, will you let us know how it goes?

      Sure will! I actually paid for the canon (twice, but that’s a long, stupid story), and I don’t think there’s much crud there. That was Amazon, though, but they were only $.99, so I was afraid I was going to get some stories about “Shellacked Homes and Gardens.”

    I’m saving up to download the New Annotated Holmes on kindle. It’s about $20, but someone showed it to me at the symposium this weekend and oh my god, is it worth it. You can bring up the annotations and all sorts of neat stuff.

      Is that Klinger’s annotated Holmes? Or a new annotated Holmes? $20 is a lot of bucks for a Kindle book, but if it’s new, I could easily be persuaded to lay down sweet coin.

    It’s Klinger’s. It is very pricey but oh man it’s cool. Sometime when I’ve got extra cash, maybe.
