Overview

Sir Arthur Conan Doyle The Dover Reader by Arthur Conan Doyle

Knighted for his service as a field doctor during the Boer War, Arthur Conan Doyle (1859–1930) is best remembered as the creator of Sherlock Holmes. In addition to his ever-popular tales of the Baker Street sleuth, Conan Doyle wrote many works of history and science fiction, as well as plays, poetry, and stories that reflected his interest in the occult.
This anthology offers an excellent selection of tales from throughout the Scottish author's career. Sherlock Holmes's adventures include the novels The Hound of the Baskervilles and A Study in Scarlet, plus the stories "The Final Problem" and "A Scandal in Bohemia." The Lost World introduces the dinosaur-hunting Professor Challenger, and a duo of supernatural thrillers features "The Ring of Thoth" and "The Los Amigos Fiasco."
