R. Holmes & Co.

by John Kendrick Bangs

An interesting series of short stories about the son of Sherlock Holmes and grandson of Raffles. Just light reading.

My Man Jeeves

by Pelham Grenville Wodehouse

I would like to endorse Chips review - well written and my sentiments exactly. Since I have trouble putting a Wodehouse book down the fact that this is a collection of short stories is a real bonus. I think I've read all Wodehouse' writings (some more than once) and I can't help but wish he had been even more prolific.

The Four Pools Mystery

by Jean Webster

Interesting mystery. Although fiction, it gives a glimpse of conditions in the south post-civil war. I enjoyed it.

The Affair of the 'Avalanche Bicycle and Tyre, Co., Ltd.'

by Arthur Morrison

A short story about morality in business. As timely today as over a century ago.
