Dreadful edition of great stories
on 29 January 2016
The "ultimate collection"? It's not even complete! The whole of the last volume of stories is missing.
Even worse, it's shockingly badly edited. Everything that should be in italics is either in CAPITALS, or written _like this_. Both are really irritating and unnecessary. Some of the illustrations (which are crucial to several of the stories) are included, but many are missing, with marks like "XXX" to indicate where the slapdash and lazy editor meant to insert them but forgot. There are typos and odd little editorial proof notes that should never have made it to the final version. It's as if they got bored halfway through putting it together.
