Tales of Adventure and Medical Life is a 1922 collection of 15 short stories, grouped into the two themes of the title. One of them contains a possible reference to Dr Watson, but all are nicely crafted workmanlike stories typical of their time, and most enjoyable.

No se si algunos cuentos eran derechamente fomes, o me aburrían porque lo leí en inglés y me costaba un poco entender ciertas partes... Igual tiene un par de cuentos que me gustaron harto. The doctors of Hoyland fue mi favorito, no esperaba encontrarme con feminismo en este libro.
