Happy Birthday Sir Arthur Conan Doyle!
May 22, 1859
"Come, Watson, come!" he cried. "The game is afoot!"
--from "The Adventure of the Abbey Grange"
Arthur Conan Doyle (1859-1930), is a Scottish author and the creator of the oft-quoted detective-hero Sherlock Holmes. Arthur Conan Doyle's now-iconic mastermind sleuth and his companion Dr. John H. Watson redefined the detective genre. Conan Doyle's medical training under Dr. Joseph Bell and practical experience as a doctor are the foundation for Holmes's methods of deductive reasoning. The Edwardian era stories are set in London, England, and places abroad. Sherlock Holmes first appeared in A Study in Scarlet in 1887 and Conan Doyle would write fifty-five more stories and four novels starring Holmes. He wrote many other notable fiction and non-fiction works including The Stark Munro Letters (1895), The Exploits of Brigadier Gerard (1896), The Hound of the Baskervilles (1902), The Lost World (1912), The Coming of the Fairies (1922), and Memories and Adventures (1924-30), many which have been translated to dozens of languages and are still in print today.
