About Sir Arthur Conan Doyle

Sir Arthur Ignatius Conan Doyle (22 May 1859 - 7 July 1930) was a Scottish writer and physician, most noted for his fictional stories about the detective Sherlock Holmes, which are generally considered milestones in the field of crime fiction. He is also known for writing the fictional adventures of a second character he invented, Professor Challenger, and for popularizing the mystery of the Mary Celeste. He was a prolific writer whose other works include fantasy and science fiction stories, plays, romances, poetry, non-fiction and historical novels. His first work featuring Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson, is A Study in Scarlet. Holmes was partially modelled on his former university teacher Joseph Bell. A sequel to A Study in Scarlet was commissioned and The Sign of the Four appeared in Lippincott's Magazine in February 1890. Short stories featuring Sherlock Holmes were published in the Strand Magazine. In 1903, Doyle published his first Holmes short story in ten years, The Adventure of the Empty House, in which it was explained that only Moriarty had fallen; but since Holmes had other dangerous enemies-especially Colonel Sebastian Moran-he had arranged to also be perceived as dead. Holmes was ultimately featured in a total of 56 short stories and four novels by Doyle, and has since appeared in many novels and stories by other authors.
