The Great Keinplatz Experiment and Other Tales

Arthur Conan Doyle

"Of all the sciences which have puzzled the sons of men, none had such an attraction for the learned Professor von Baumgarten as those which relate to psychology and the ill-defined relations between mind and matter. A celebrated anatomist, a profound chemist, and one of the first physiologists in Europe, it was a relief for him to turn from these subjects and to bring his varied knowledge to bear upon the study of the soul and the mysterious relationship of spirits."

The Great Keinplatz Experiment and Other Tales of Twilight and the Unseen by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle is a collection of a dozen short stories exploring the macabre and the occult, science and the soul. The stories were copyrighted individually from 1894 through 1919. The title story was actually published in magazine form in 1885 and its subject matter of spirits predate Doyle’s later involvement in spiritualism by some 30 years. The other stories in this collection are:

  • The Brown Hand;
  • The Usher of Lea House School;
  • B. 24;
  • Cyprian Overbeck Wells;
  • Playing with Fire;
  • The Ring of Thoth;
  • The Los Amigos Fiasco;
  • How It Happened;
  • Lot No. 249;
  • “De Profundis”; and
  • The Lift
