Meet the Author

A prolific author of books, short stories, poetry, and more, the Scottish writer Sir Arthur Conan Doyle (1859-1930) is best known for the creation of one of literature’s most vivid and enduring characters: Sherlock Holmes. Through detailed observation, vast knowledge, and brilliant deduction, Holmes and his trusted friend, Dr. Watson, step into the swirling fog of Victorian London to rescue the innocent, confound the guilty, and solve the most perplexing puzzles known to literature.

These stories are interesting but not compelling. Many of them were lost for decades. Doyle was a writer who dabbled in many genres besides creating Holmes and Watson. These tales include mystery stories, supernatural thrillers, and even comedies of manners and an alternative history yarn. None of them are classics, just a pro plying his trade. I recommend his Brigadier Gerard and Professor Challenger stories and also The White Company and Sir Nigel, two connected historical novels set in the Hundred Years War.
