'The immense talent, passion and literary brilliance that Conan Doyle brought to his work give him a unique place in English letters. Personally, I'd walk a million miles in tight boots just to read his letters to the milkman' Stephen Fry

Here's what you say about us...

Sir Arthur Conan Doyle (1859-1930) was born in Edinburgh where he
qualified as a doctor, but it was his writing which brought him fame,
with the creation of Sherlock Holmes, the first scientific detective. He
was also a convert to spiritualism and a social reformer who used his
investigative skills to prove the innocence of individuals.

Holmes is a mesmerising creation and Conan Doyle a master storyteller
