Title: The Man from Archangel and Other Tales of Adventure
Author: Sir Arthur Conan Doyle

Now this is interesting – a collection of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s short stories, a collection that’s split in to two sections. It begins with the ‘Tales of Adventure’, of which The Man from Archangel belongs to. It then moves on to ‘Tales of Medical Life‘, which are undoubtedly influenced by Sir Conan Doyle’s career as a physician.
I thought the medical stories might be boring, but actually they’re just as fine of an example of his storytelling as you’ll ever find. They draw heavily on human nature and the way in which members of the later Victorian generation behaved. I’d read The Great Brown-Pericord Motor before, though.
