Good deal: 'The Complete Sherlock Holmes' free for Kindle

Arthur Conan Doyle Good Deal

Many of Arthur Conan Doyle's Sherlock Holmes stories are already in the public domain and free online, though the character himself occupies a murky legal morass. Now, you can read every one in a single volume. Simon & Schuster has compiled four novels (including A Study in Scarlet, which introduced Holmes, and The Hound of the Baskervilles) and a host of short stories and packaged them for Kindle, offering the whole thing for free through Amazon's site. The Complete Sherlock Holmes was released today, and it looks to be free for the foreseeable future, much like other Kindle public domain works.
