You are welcome to do so yourself. Personally, I wanted an omnibus edition, and I created the book. If you don't like it, don't download it .

is it possible to split the lrf book to multiple lrf books? i mean i want each novel and short stories as separate lrf files, is these possible.

Thank you
Use Calibre to convert it to ePub. Then edit the ePub to look how you want. Then make copies of this ePub and edit each one to make each story seperate. That will work to get each story separate. It may be a long process, but it's the best way to do it given that this version has had errors corrected so starting with the PG source is not going to give you as good a copy.

Major edit and re-arrangement of the book. All books within the omnibus are now presented in chronological order and, within the short story collections, the stories in "His Last Bow" and "The Case-Book of Sherlock Holmes" have been re-arranged into publication order. Many illustrations have been re-scanned, and several missing ones added. "The Adventure of the Cardboard Box" has been restored from "His Last Bow" to its rightful place in "The Memoirs of Sherlock Holmes" (it was omitted from the first English edition because it was felt to be too shocking at the time of original publication). At the same time, the introduction to "The Cardboard Box" which had been (badly) appended to the start of "The Resident Patient" has been removed, and the original Strand Magazine introduction restored. Many hundreds of errors have been corrected, and italics, missing accents, etc, restored. The formatting has been significantly improved (eg letters, newspaper quotes, etc, are now indented and in a smaller font). The result of all this is an immensely improved and much more error-free book.

A number of people reported typos in the previous upload, so I thought I'd better get them corrected immediately. I've also replaced the cover by one that's consistent with the cover style that I usually use. Uploaded v10.

A number of MR users have reported small errors, about a dozen in total. Fixed these, and created a new version. Many thanks for these error reports - please do let me know if you find any remaining errors; I'm sure there must still be some!
