The Apostolic Fathers

How good is "The Apostolic Fathers" by Michael W. Holmes? It's a Greek-English edition of the works of the Apostolic Fathers. Is it any good or is there a better critical text out there?

I liked it.  But I'm not sure if other critical editions exist

I want to bump this thread.

I bought a 1991 reprint of the 1989 Baker by APOLLOS (Inter-Varsity) at a used bookstore in York, UK.  It was in great condition and I had been meaning to pick up a collection of The Apostolic Fathers.

Any new opinions out there?
