I've found a lot of good Sherlock Holmes stories listed under the author name of Conan Doyle

The first person to have this idea (using the mysteries Conan Doyle only hinted at) was his nephew Adrian Conan Doyle in partnership with mystery writer John Dickson Carr, in The Exploits of Sherlock Holmes, published in the 1930s. Some are quite interesting, others a bit derivative. It's too easy to become a parody of the original, carefully mentioning the tobacco in the Persian slipper etc, but not adding much that's new.

I am a little concerned with the review on one of them that says its full of typos and mistakes. As a dyslexic who loved Sherlock Holmes when done by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, I am worried that typos will mean I end up not really able to read and enjoy them. Neither description listed any names of stories within. Are you able to give some names of the cases included?

The OP is badly worded, ckb. Kindle did not become available until 2007.

Would it count as an example of your 'tightly crafted' prose, ckb?

The Sherlock Holmes concept had pretty much been exhausted even before Sir Arthur Conan Doyle had finished writing these stories. Some of his later Holmes stories are very weak, and - with one or two honourable exceptions - most of the Holmes literature subsequently churned out by other authors has been pretty dismal. It's rather a shame that the original Holmes stories have been degraded by the way the name has been shamelessly exploited ever since.
