About the Book

Twelve short stories by Arthur Conan Doyle are collected in Tales of Terror and Mystery, a book that John Murray initially released in 1922. The book is split into two sections: Tales of Terror, which contains horror stories, and Tales of Mystery, which contains tales about mysterious plots. This book includes some of Conan Doyle's masterworks that have been unfairly overlooked. Each starts out simply factual, which makes the crescendo of anxiety and confusion that follows as each new situation is disclosed all the more powerful. Conan Doyle demonstrates that his stories are unmatched for thrills and excitement even without his eminently logical creation, Sherlock Holmes. This anthology of tales is what persuaded me of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's extraordinary narrative talent. Compared to Tales of the Ring and the Camp or Tales of Pirates and Blue Water, Arthur Conan Doyle is more secure with Tales of Terror and Mystery. Conan Doyle is most known for his mysteries, but as his Sherlock Holmes tales frequently show, he also had a keen taste for the macabre and gory.
