About the Author

Sir Arthur Conan Doyle was born in Edinburgh on May 22, 1859, one of seven children who survived to adulthood. He studied medicine at the University of Edinburgh, when he started to write short stories. His most famous character, Sherlock Holmes, first appeared in A Study in Scarlet in 1887. After the death of his first wife, Louise Hawkins, with whom he had a son and a daughter, he went on to marry Jean Leckie in 1907 and they had two sons and a daughter. He died in 1930.

Reviews

He is unique in simultaneously bringing down the curtain on an era and raising one on another, ushering in a genre of writing that... has never been surpassed. His own life, as footballer... eye surgeon, champion of injustice and investigator into the paranormal, is the stuff of legend. Personally, I would walk a mile in tight boots to read his letters to the milkman--Stephen Fry, The Arthur Conan Doyle Collection
