Selected and with an Introduction by David Stuart Davies. This gripping set of tales by the master storyteller Arthur Conan Doyle is bound to thrill and unnerve you. In these twilight excursions, Doyle's vivid imagination for the strange, the grotesque and the frightening is given full rein. We move from the mysteries of Egypt and the strange powers granted by 'The Ring of Thoth' to the isolated ghostlands of the Arctic in 'The Captain of the Polestar', we encounter a monstrous creature in 'The Terror of Blue John Cap' and the beings that live above our heads in 'The Brazilian Cat' and 'The Leather Funnel'; and we shudder at the thing in the next room in Lot 249. Sit down in your uneasy chair and enjoy this unique collection of chillers. Other Stories include: The Lord of Chateau Noir The New Catacomb The Case of Lady Sannox The Brown Hand The Horror of the Heights How It Happened Playing with Fire The Los Amigos Fiasco The Nightmare Room AUTHOR: Sir Arthur Conan Doyle (1859-1930) was a Scottish physician and writer. His works encompass a wide variety of genres, and it was his historical novels that he considered his finest work. However, posterity remembers him only as the creator of Sherlock Holmes. Each new generation discovers Holmes afresh, as the current TV and film adaptations demonstrate. Doyle created a character so well known that he exists in the borderline between fiction and reality.
