  • The Solar Pons Omnibus is a collection of detective fiction stories by author August Derleth. It was released in 1982 by Arkham House in an edition of 3,031 copies. The collection was published in two volumes with a slipcase. The set collects all of the Solar Pons stories of August Derleth. The stories are pastiches of the Sherlock Holmes tales of Arthur Conan Doyle. The collection was edited by Basil Copper. The stories are arranged by their internal chronology, rather than by the date of their release. The stories had earlier appeared under the Arkham House imprint of Mycroft & Moran. As Copper "edited" the tales in ways that many Pontine aficionados found objectionable, a later omnibus, The Original Text Solar Pons Omnibus Edition, was issued in 2000, reverting the stories to the previous versions. The later omnibus also discarded Copper's chronological arrangement in favor of the order in which the stories had appeared in the original Derleth volumes.
