Perhaps in some places dated but that doesn't really matter, as these are still loads of fun to read. Ideal to read a book here or there this collection should give you hours and hours of reading pleasure, that you will want to come back to time and time again.
Revisiting Wallace recreates the pleasure of my first encounters with his heroes. I am enjoying this purchase enormously.
He has an easy style, uses good grammar and keeps the excitement and suspense going throughout the story. One has to understand that although the attitude of his characters (particularly Sanders) towards black and coloured people would not be tolerated today, it was prevalent at the time the stories were written - and indeed for too long afterwards.
Particular favourites are the Four Just Men and I sometimes find myself wondering if we could not do with them now!
His goodies were gentlemen and his baddies were really bad! Sadly, women tended to be there to be rescued or adored but he did have a few heroines. If you can accept that his stories were set in a bygone time, read and enjoy them!
The collection of stories itself is good.
