Sherlock Holmes Books: Coming soon: The Hound of the Baskervilles – Penguin Hardcover

[caption id="" align="alignright" width="100" caption="See more information on Amazon"]The Hound of the Baskervilles - Penguin Classics - Hardcover edition[/caption]

While The Hound of the Baskervilles has enjoyed many previous outings in a variety of formats - this looks like a rather nice edition.

It's hardcover and features an introduction by renowned popular culture academic Sir Christopher Frayling. For those wishing to get a preview of his introduction to this Sherlock Holmes book - pop over to Amazon and use their Look Inside the book feature. It looks pretty authoritative.

The stand out feature of this version of The Hound  though is the green-brown cover adorned with various moths. It takes a nice bit of lateral thinking not to feature either a slathering dog or someone wearing a deerstalker.  Nice one, Penguin.

The Hound of the Baskervilles is out on September 28, 2010
