I am currently reading a book of short fiction, and this story happened to be in it. I don't know if I would have picked this up had it not already been included, but I surprisingly enjoyed it. On numerous occasions I felt myself think, 'how rude' as plot points started to reveal themselves. All in all, it was a short and satisfying read that wrapped up quite nicely.

Dentro del conjunto de Cuentos de terror, destacan por méritos propios un par de relatos: “El embudo de cuero” y este. “El gato de Brasil” nos cuenta la historia de Marshall King, el heredero de la Casa Otswell. Marshall, sin embargo, no ve ni un penique de la fortuna de la familia al morir su padre y los vicios caros y las aficiones refinadas a que estaba acostumbrado se convierten para él en un auténtico problema, ya que “Ni mi tío [lord Southerton ] ni el estado se dieron por enterados de mi ...more

Esta pequena coletânea, lançada pela Coleção 64 da L&PM, abriga quatro histórias curtas de Conan Doyle, que enveredam pelo suspense e pelo macabro.

A Nova Catacumba mostra a relação entre dois arqueólogos e a visita deles a uma nova catacumba encontrada nas proximidades de Roma. Por fim,

Arthur Conan Doyle escreve contos de terror. Essa é a primeira boa notícia.

Arthur Conan Doyle escreve na terceira pessoa em dois deles, essa é outra boa notícia.

As más notícias são: Arthur Conan Doyle não é muito criativo para contos de terror. Nenhuma das histórias é interessante. O que realmente é divertido é ver um autor, famoso por um gênero se aventurar em um outro que possui muitas similaridades, mas não é, de maneira alguma, idêntico.

O Gato do Brasil e Outras Histórias de Terror e Suspense é um livro pequeno, da coleção da L&PM, com 4 contos escritos por Arthur Conan Doyle.

São contos que se assemelham em estrutura e forma às “Histórias Extraordinárias...” de Poe.

Por incrível que pareça, o conto que dá nome ao livro foi o que menos gostei. Em contrapartida, adorei o angustiante “A Nova Catacumba” e o macabro “O Caso de Lady Sannox”. Recomendo!

Sir Arthur Conan Doyle was born the third of ten siblings on 22 May 1859 in Edinburgh, Scotland. His father, Charles Altamont Doyle, was born in England of Irish descent, and his mother, born Mary Foley, was Irish. They were married in 1855.

Although he is now referred to as "Conan Doyle", the origin of this compound surname (if that is how he meant it to be understood) is uncertain. His baptism re
