DescriptionThe Parasite is a novelette written by the famous author, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle.
The main character is a young man named Austin Gilroy. He studies physiology and knows a professor who studies the occult.
The young man is introduced to a middle-aged woman known as Miss Penclosa, who has a crippled leg and psychic powers...
THE PARASITE is an enjoyable novella that can be comfortably devoured in a single sitting and atmospheric literature that exemplifies Victorian behaviour and beliefs.
Highly recommended if you'd like to sample some Arthur Conan Doyle writing that is well off the beaten track!
Sir Arthur Conan Doyle is, of course, best known for his Sherlock Holmes and Professor Challenger characters. What is much less well known is that Doyle was fascinated with spiritualism and the paranormal.
