Tales for a Winter's Night brings together eight Arthur Conan Doyle mystery classics that originally appeared in the
Strand magazine between July 1898 and January 1899. When first gathered into one volume in 1908, the book was entitled
Round the Fire Stories, since the author recommended that they be read ideally "round the fire" upon a winter's night.
According to Barzun & Taylor in A Catalogue of Crime, "As one reads 'The Man with the Watches', 'The Lost Special', 'The Jew's Breastplate', 'The Black Doctor', and the rest, one marvels again at Doyle's natural gift of story-telling and one relishes his ingrained habit of giving clues, even when they serve narrative and are not to be used for ratiocination. The stories are worth reading even around a radiator."
