Most of these works are available for free from sources such as Project Gutenberg; however, having his complete works all together in one place makes things much more convenient. The text is well digitized. I've come across very few - if any - typographical errors. The collections and individual sorry stories are linked from the table of contents. In short, it works as it should. And it has one of the best English short stories every written: The Open Window.
