The Adventure of Wisteria Lodge By Arthur Conan Doyle
eBook (ePub): $1.99
The Adventure of Wisteria Lodge is one of the longer stories featuring Sherlock Holmes written by Arthur Conan Doyle. This tale is noted for its introduction of Inspector Baynes, a member of the... More > police force who can in some ways match Holmes's investigative prowess. It is different from most of the other stories because Holmes doesn't actually solve the crime. Instead he follows along as Baynes works the case. Sherlock is indeed charming in this tale, but he is in many ways showed up by the other detective. The story line is solid premise for sure, but if you're just getting into the Holmes series, this shouldn't be your first stop. The Adventure of Wisteria Lodge is more for seasoned Holmes fans who've burnt through all the other stories, and still want more. If this is you, dig in!< Less

The Lost World By Arthur Conan Doyle
eBook (ePub): $3.99
The Lost World features his second most famous hero, Professor Challenger. Edward Malone, a reporter for the Daily Gazette, volunteers for a mission with the eccentric Challenger, who's claimed to... More > have found living dinosaurs in the Amazon. With another scientist and a big game hunter they travel to a volcanic plateau overlooking the vast rainforest. Dinosaurs were totally "in" in 1912, so Doyle's The Lost World was a massive hit among teenaged boys all over the world. This story is told from the perspective of Malone instead of Dr. Watson; and Challenger's personality is aggressive and dominating (unlike Holmes's) - so Doyle was able to open up more with the narrative. Thus we find more overt humor and wise-cracks in this book, especially between the two scientists. The Lost World also falls into the popular "boys' books" genre, but since Doyle was unsatisfied with the typical character portrayals in these books, he gave his characters plenty of flaws and weaknesses, so they weren't so "perfect."< Less
The Vital Message By Arthur Conan Doyle
eBook (ePub): $1.99
Sir Arthur Conan Doyle was one of Britain's most celebrated writers with his invention of the ultimate detective, Sherlock Holmes, completely altering the crime-fiction genre of the late 19th... More > century. As well as this, he was a pioneering sportsman, a doctor of medicine, and champion of the underdog, helping to free two men who were unjustly imprisoned. Of most importance to the man himself, however, was his belief in life after death and the spreading of the 'vital message'. He received his degree in medicine from the University of Edinburgh Medical School in 1881 and by this time had already began investigating Spiritualism and had began attending séances, a fact that rebuffs the more common idea that he found Spiritualism after his son Kingsley died in 1918. In fact, by that time, not only had he studied Spiritualism for almost 30 years, he had even declared the fact and spoken publicly about his beliefs.< Less
