Sherlock Holmes is so famous that Doyle's other works are unheard of. This book is a short story collection with the subjects ranging from the supernatural to gentle comedy. And the horror. I will be getting to that part soon, but with the attention to detail that Doyle uses in every story, I expect some chills.
All in all, it is a nice collection of good unknown short stories. And it is a nice companion to the Sherlock Holmes books. From pirates to pilots to disgruntled students, everything in here is very readable.
