About the Author
The first of Doyle's Sherlock Holmes stories appeared in 1887, but his detective gained true fame through the series of stories he wrote for The Strand magazine starting in 1891. More Sherlock Holmes works followed, despite Doyle's attempt to kill him off. A versatile writer of science and historical fiction, Doyle resented being noted solely as the creator of Sherlock Holmes.
