Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“One could call these stories classics, or possibly old chestnuts, but if they’re sometimes overly familiar, they’re still of high quality...Readings such as “The Monkey’s Paw,” “Smee,” and “The Willows” are among the best of a fine lot, generating chills through effective pacing and good acting.” AudioFile

Author Bio: Sir Arthur Conan Doyle

Author Bio: Sir Arthur Conan Doyle

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.

Edgar Allan Poe (1809–1848) transformed the American literary landscape with his innovations in the short story genre and his haunting lyrical poetry, and he is credited with inventing American gothic horror and detective fiction. He was first published in 1827 and then began a career as a magazine writer and editor and a sharp literary critic.

Author Bio: W. W. Jacobs

W. W. Jacobs (1863–1943) is considered a master of the macabre tale, mostly for his work The Monkey’s Paw, a classic horror short story. He was a master at weaving terror and suspense into scenes of everyday life. Nevertheless, his popularity in his own lifetime arose mostly due to his amusing maritime tales of life along the London docks.
