Best known for his mysteries, particularly those featuring the crime-solving ability of his iconic detective, Sherlock Holmes, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle wrote in other genres as well. "Horror of the Heights", a science fiction narrative excerpted here from the Four Short Stories collection, features an unsettling example of the literary master's non-Holmesian work. British film and television veteran Carl Rigg uses his gravelly baritone to provide the tone of uneasy agitation that pervades this story - written just years after airplanes first lifted off the ground - of what nightmarish creatures await the pilot who climbs too high in the sky.
This is a story from the Four Short Stories collection.
In these stories, Conan Doyle draws the listener in to experience drama, suspense and, ultimately, the shock of surprise. Here is a unique combination of a famous analytical intellect telling spine-tingling tales against a background of turn-of-the-century England. Nothing is quite as it seems. What is the secret of "Lot No. 249"? What lies in wait for an aviator in the stratosphere? And what lies inside "The Sealed Room"?
