a book of victorian detective stories


detection by gaslight (1997 ) edited by douglas g. greene is a collection of 14 detective stories from the 19th century

the collection of detective stories in this book explains why i like sir arthur conan doyle’s creation the best / most of the stories in this sampling from the victorian period have uninteresting, boring plots as well unintriguing, unimpressive detective characters \ and the styles of writing made me nod off a number of times  / on the other hand, “sherlock holmes” – main character, enemies, supporting cast & plotlines are the complete opposite

mfc “recommended” this book / got library card at the carnegie library of pittsburgh-downtown & business
