Om Horror of the Heights
Best known as the creator of super-sleuth Sherlock Holmes, Conan Doyle also wrote thrilling tales of the supernatural and the corruption of technology. His sharp wit and chillingly detailed writing are at their peak in this diverse collection of adventures, ranging from the cunning escapades of a wartime strategist extraordinaire in "Danger!" to the gripping story of one explorer's fatal journey into the skies in "The Horror of the Heights."Every reader who accepts Conan Doyle's invitation to "come through the magic door" discovers a world in which the senses are a thin veneer over an unsettling psychological and spiritual realm, a realm in which possibilities have no limits. This volume presents fourteen forgotten masterpieces by one of last century's most popular writers.
