Sir Arthur Conan Doyle - Tales of Terror and Mystery
Tales of Terror and Mystery
While he is now mostly associated with his Sherlock Holmes stories, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle was also celebrated for the many masterful tales he wrote outside of that cycle. In this collection, first published in 1922, he compiled various pieces of short fiction which fall into the categories of horror and detective fiction, two genres for which he has become a byword. These eclectic, captivating tales - dealing with topics such as mysterious jungles in the sky, seventeenth-century torture techniques, a bloodthirsty Brazilian cat and a train mysteriously disappearing between two stations - Sir Arthur Conan Doyle at his creative best.
