Overview

I have had a life which, for variety and romance, could, I think, hardly be exceeded. I have known what it was to be a poor man and I have known what it was to be fairly affluent. I have sampled every kind of human experience. I have known many of the most remarkable men of my time. I have had a long literary career after a medical training which gave me the MD of Edinburgh. . . My life has been dotted with adventures of all kinds. Finally, I have been constrained to devote my latter years to telling the world the final result of thirty-six years' study of the occult. . . . Such is the life which I have told in some detail in my Memories and Adventures. —Sir Arthur Conan Doyle

Meet the Author

SIR ARTHUR CONAN DOYLE (1859–1930) was born of Irish parentage in Scotland. He studied medicine at the University of Edinburgh, but initial poverty as a young practitioner led him into authorship. His first book introduced that prototype of the modern detective in fiction, Sherlock Holmes. He also wrote historical romances and two essays into pseudoscientific fantasy, The Lost World (1912) and The Poison Belt (1913). He served as a physician in the South African war (1899-1902), and his pamphlet, The War in South Africa (1902), correcting enemy propaganda and justifying Britain's action, earned him a knighthood in 1902.

Robert Whitfield, winner of numerous Earphones Awards, was born in England. He worked for ten years as a radio news announcer for the BBC and as a narrator for the Royal National Institute for the Blind in London. In addition to narrating for Blackstone Audio, he is involved in numerous stage-acting projects in the United States and Europe.
