9780897332651: The Best Horror Stories of Arthur Conan Doyle

These horror stories -- never before compiled in one volume -- are carefully crafted, compelling and believable. Written in about the same decade as the Sherlock Holmes series, they will convince you that Arthur Conan Doyle was a master of more than just the detective story.

About the Author :

Sir Arthur Conan Doyle (1859-1930) was born of Irish parentage in Scotland. He studied medicine at the University of Edinburgh, but he also had a passion for storytelling. His first book introduced that prototype of the modern detective in fiction, Sherlock Holmes. Despite the immense popularity Holmes gained throughout the world, Doyle was not overly fond of the character and preferred to write other stories. Eventually popular demand won out and he continued to satisfy readers with the adventures of the legendary sleuth. He also wrote historical romances and made two essays into pseudoscientific fantasy: The Lost World and The Poison Belt.

McSherry is an artist and writer. His articles and stories have appeared in such magazines as The Armchair Detective and Mike Shayne.

Review :

Although clearly most renowned for his Sherlock Holmes sagas, Arthur Conan Doyle also produced a number of notable horror tales during his long and varied career. His enduring influence on the field is bome out by Anne Rice's dedication of her recent novel, "Me Mummy," to him. This collection gathers thirteen of Conan Doyle's finest tales of terror. Notable stories here include: "Lot 249," an early tale of a resuscitated Egyptian mummy on the rampage; "Me Captain of the Polestar," an atmospheric story of ghostly disturbances on a medical student's Arctic voyage, told in the popular journalentry style of the time; "Me Leadier Funnel," in which the ancient torture device of the tide still carries with it the nightmarish experiences of its victims; and "J. Hababuk Jephson's Statement," a fictional recounting of the Marie Celeste mystery, in which the ship winds up in the hands of an African tribe. This fine collection could prove illuminating for Conan Doyle fans who know only of his "Holmesian" work; it's representative of the foremost in turn-of-the-cerittiry horror fiction. -- From Independent Publisher

Description du livre Academy Chicago Publishers, United States, 2005. Paperback. État : New. Language: English . Brand New Book. Though best known as the creator of Sherlock Holmes, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle was also an accomplished writer of the most chilling horror stories of the 20th century. Written during the same period as the Sherlock Holmes mysteries, these horror stories share the darkness of Doyle s more well-known works, if not always their logical conclusions. Together they paint quite a different picture of Doyle than do his detective pieces, illuminating a writer as fascinated by the supernatural and the unsolveable as by the science of modern detection.
