The Tragedy of the Korosko is a novel by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. It was serialized a year earlier in The Strand magazine between May and December 1897, and was later turned into a play Fires of Fate.
Conan Doyle, the second of Charles Altamont and Mary Foley Doyle&rsquos 10 children, began seven years of Jesuit education in Lancashire, England, in 1868. After an additional year of schooling in Feldkirch, Austria, Conan Doyle returned to Edinburgh. Through the influence of Dr. Bryan Charles Waller, his mother&rsquos lodger, he prepared for entry into the University of Edinburgh&rsquos Medical School. He received Bachelor of Medicine and Master of Surgery qualifications from Edinburgh in 1881 and an M.D. in 1885 upon completing his thesis, &ldquoAn Essay upon the Vasomotor Changes in Tabes Dorsalis.&rdquo
