About the Author

ARTHUR IGNATIUS CONAN DOYLE (May 1859 – July 1930), a British writer and physician, is most noted for his fictional stories about the detective Sherlock Holmes. His stories are widely acclaimed as milestones in the field of crime fiction. Doyle is also known for writing the fictional adventures of Professor Challenger, another character created by him, and for popularising the mystery of the Mary Celeste. He was a prolific writer and his writings include fantasy and science fiction stories, plays, romances, poetry, non-fiction and historical novels. From 1876 to 1881, Doyle studied medicine at the University of Edinburgh Medical School. He began writing short stories while studying. His first published piece, “The Mystery of Sasassa Valley”, a story set in South Africa, was printed in Chambers’s Edinburgh Journal in 1879. The same year, he published his first academic article, “Gelsemium as a Poison” in the British Medical Journal, a study which was regarded by the Daily Telegraph as potentially useful in a 21st century alleged murder investigation. Doyle’s first work featuring Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson was A Study in Scarlet, which appeared in the Beeton’s Christmas Annual in 1886 and received good reviews in The Scotsman and the Glasgow Herald. It is said that despite the roaring success of Sherlock Holmes, he wanted to wind up the character “for good and all” as he “took his mind from better things.” But the publishers demanded more Holmes stories and were willing to pay him the large sums he asked. As a result, Doyle became one of the best-paid authors of his time. Holmes featured in a total of 56 short stories—the last published in 1927—and four novels by Doyle, and has since appeared in many novels and stories by other authors. Arthur Conan Doyle influenced Agatha Christie and many other detective fiction writers with his famous detective/fiction stories.
