For example, in A Study In Scarlet, toward the very end:
"...any sudden chance would be likely to draw attention to himself." "Chance" should clearly be "change" but was overlooked somewhere in the publishing process. Because it is a legitimate word, no spell checker would flag it, but a proofreader would. Short of that, could you please use a grammar checker?
I would really like to see greater care taken with all eBooks, but particularly with these cherished stories which sometimes have antiquated words and phrases in them. I want to be certain that when I buy a book (yes, even for such a small cost) it will be an accurate electronic copy of the original.
A great deal of energy is currently being poured into marketing eReaders like the Kindle; perhaps the same should be done for the books themselves.
This edition has proven uneven in its quality. As I read through the stories, it was clear that the ones in "The Memoirs of Sherlock Holmes" were not as carefully transcribed as those in "The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes." I have been reading "The Stock-broker's Clerk" and it is filled with typos and dropped letters. Getting this right is not rocket-science, folks; it's simple literacy. Someone human needs to review the book before publication.
