    Volume two in this series consists of one novel, The Hound of the Baskervilles, and two collections of short stories, which include "Memoirs of Sherlock Holmes" and "The Return of Sherlock Holmes" (a total of 23 stories). These creations by Doyle represent the finest work of his Holmes series, and certainly the most famous.

    Overall

    The publisher's web site says, "Look for Volume III at the end of 2010." I believe that Vol. III should complete the series and include all the stories written by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle.

    These books and stories are in the public domain, but, having them in a collection and with good narration, these volumes (I & II) have been very entertaining and a well worth a credit each.

    Six days ago, astronaut Mark Watney became one of the first people to walk on Mars. Now, he's sure he'll be the first person to die there. After a dust storm nearly kills him and forces his crew to evacuate while thinking him dead, Mark finds himself stranded and completely alone with no way to even signal Earth that he’s alive—and even if he could get word out, his supplies would be gone long before a rescue could arrive. Chances are, though, he won't have time to starve to death. The damaged machinery, unforgiving environment, or plain old "human error" are much more likely to kill him first. But Mark isn't ready to give up yet. Drawing on his ingenuity, his engineering skills—and a relentless, dogged refusal to quit—he steadfastly confronts one seemingly insurmountable obstacle after the next. Will his resourcefulness be enough to overcome the impossible odds against him?"

    Any additional comments?

    A page turner; hard to imagine you could possibly be disappointed. I think even people that don't customarily like science fiction will enjoy this book. The setting is not particularly futuristic in that it is plausible for the not too distant future.
