So get ready for Doyle’s vivid spine-tingling imagination to unnerve and thrill you in equal measure! Sir Arthur Conan Doyle (1859-1930) - Inspired by Sir Walter Scott, Robert Louis Stevenson, Edgar Allan Poe, Guy De Maupassant, and Emile Gaboriau, Arthur Conan Doyle’s now iconic mastermind sleuth and his companion Dr. John H. Watson redefined the detective genre.
Conan Doyle’s medical training under Dr. Joseph Bell was the foundation for Holmes’s methods of deductive reasoning. Sherlock Holmes first appeared in A Study in Scarlet in 1887 and Conan Doyle would write fifty-five more stories and four novels starring Holmes.
He wrote many other notable fiction and non-fiction works including The Stark Monro Letters (1895), The Exploits of Brigadier Gerard (1896), The Hound Of The Baskervilles (1902), The Lost World (1912), The Coming Of The Fairies (1922), and Memories and Adventures (1924-30), many of which have been translated to dozens of languages and are still in print today.
