Bound At The Baskervilles!


Hound of the Baskervilles is my favorite Sherlock Holmes story and I own many copies of it with all manner of covers. But I do not own the Bantam paperback above which is pushing the novel to a completely different audience by taking a book about the great Sherlock Holmes and a giant devilish ghostly hound and featuring neither but rather a scene near the end of the story when a woman is tied up. Yikes! Who the heck bought this thing without knowledge of the classic case and waited breathlessly as the scene did not come up until the very end. They must've been very very disappointed.

  1. Yeah, but I want to read that book. :) They should use this cover for Fifty Shades of Grey.

    1. That's what a cover is supposed to do, make you want to read it. So many modern comics don't alas.
