About Sir Arthur Conan Doyle
Born on 22 May 1859 in Edinburgh, SIR ARTHUR CONAN DOYLE started
writing stories as a student. With a repertoire of over thirty books, hundred
and fifty short stories, essays, plays and poems, he earned the distinction of
being one of the greatest short story writers ever, since Edgar Allan Poe. A
master of all literary genres, his memorable creation is the invincible sleuth
Sherlock Holmes whom the readers are introduced to in his first novel, A Study
in Scarlet (1887). Such was the charisma of this Great Detective that when the
author decided to kill Holmes in His Last Bow (1893), he was compelled to
bring Holmes back after vociferous demands from readers. A two-volume com-
pendium, Sherlock Holmes: The Complete Novels & Stories 1 comprises some
of the significant adventures of the iconoclastic detective The Adventure of
the Speckled Band, The Musgrave Ritual, A Scandal in Bohemia, and The
Five Orange Pips among others. The Memoirs of Sherlock Holmes adds another
dimension to this comprehensive collection.
A war correspondent, a spiritualist, an athlete and a historian, the author was
knighted for his contribution in a South African field hospital during the Boer
War in 1902. He died on 7 July 1930 in Crowborough, Sussex.
