Welcome to Part Four of our new series Tales for Our Time. Our first tale is an audio serialization of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's 1897 novel The Tragedy of the Korosko. In today's episode, the harsh reality of a dangerous world breaks in on a routine excursion by our British, French and American tourists - as it has very bloodily for other tourists in our own age, from Tunisia to Egypt.

~On Wednesday I'll be answering your questions live at 4pm Eastern - that's 1pm Pacific, 9pm British Summer Time, 10pm in Paris and Berlin, and a rather early start to Thursday morning for our Aussie readers, but we hope a few of them will lob a query or two my way.
