Originally published in 1908 and out of print for more than half a century, this
collection of stories, complete with a Preface by the author, presents Sir
Arthur Conan Doyle at his finest. These 17 tales of suspense and adventure are
meant to be read "round the fire" on a cold winter's night and include murder,
madness, ghosts, unsolved crimes, mysterious disappearances, and more.
A collection of 17 works of the great storyteller reprinted from the 1908
McClure Co. edition. These horror stories manifest the skill and ingenuity of
the Holmes canon. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
