About Sir Arthur Conan Doyle

Scottish writer and master storyteller Sir Arthur Conan Doyle was born in 1859. As a medical student he was so impressed by his professor's powers of deduction that he was inspired to create the illustrious and much-loved figure Sherlock Holmes. However in contrast to his scientific background, Conan Doyle became increasingly interested in spiritualism, leaving him keen to explore other fantastical elements in stories such as The Lost World.
