Obviously “The Stark Munro Letters" have not the fascination of the unique Sherlock Holmes, but the book is a bit of real literature. It narrates the struggles of a young medical man to secure a footing, and the courage and energy of this person are not less than admirable. There are some excellent sketches of character apart from that of Dr. Munro himself, the principal one being that of a strange mixture of genius and charlatanism named Cullingworth, who nearly wrecks the manly Munro, but whose influence is happily thrown off in time. The book has a curious life-like quality, almost impelling a conviction that its material has been taken from facts in the author's knowledge, and yet we have so high an opinion of Dr. Doyle's invention that we do not insist upon this theory.

When "Round the Red Lamp" appeared in 1894, readers and reviewers were appalled. Expecting tales in the style of Conan Doyle's popular Sherlock Holmes stories, readers were shocked to find instead harrowing medical stories involving childbirth, syphilis, and botched amputations. The tales in "Round the Red Lamp" range in theme from the realistic to the bizarre in such stories as 'Lot No. 249', involving a reanimated mummy that stalks a young medical student, and 'The Los Amigos Fiasco', where a doctor's misconception about the effects of electricity brings about surprising results for a condemned prisoner. In addition to the fifteen stories in the original collection, this edition reprints three of Conan Doyle's other rare medical tales, including the chilling masterpiece 'The Retirement of Signor Lambert'. In addition to being a prolific writer, Arthur Conan Doyle (1859-1930) was a medical doctor and the author of a variety of nonfiction articles and essays on medical subjects. This edition includes a selection of Conan Doyle's rare nonfiction medical writings, some of which have never been reprinted. As Robert Darby argues in the introduction to this edition, these stories and articles provide 'a rare glimpse into the world of a provincial GP at the moment when old-style medicine was dying and the modern medical profession was emerging'.
