General Note
"This text is taken from the original version first published in The Strand magazine (London), vols. XXII, XXIII (August, 1901 - April, 1902)"--Copyright p.
Eerie illustrations enhance a blood-curdling edition of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's most-celebrated Sherlock Holmes mystery, bringing its delicious shivers to a new generation of readers. Is it true that a hellish hound is haunting the lonely moors, hunting down the hapless Baskervilles through the generations? If anyone can put this chilling legend to rest, it's Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson. It seems the body of the latest owner of the Baskerville estate has just been discovered in a ghastly condition, and Holmes has been called in on the case none too soon. The howls and moans that punctuate the elaborate twists of this Gothic tale will raise the hair on readers' necks and make converts of any who are not already fans of the famed detective. This classic mystery novel is presented in an unabridged edition, lavishly illustrated with the atmospheric and stylish artwork of Pam Smy.
