ARTHUR CONAN DOYLE

Literary Book Collection. Author Biography

classic book author arthur conan doyleSir Arthur Conan Doyle (1859-1930)

Conan Doyle was a Scottish author renound for his Sherlock Holmes detective novels, but wrote in a number of genres from science fiction, to romances, poetry and non-fiction.

Born in Edinburgh, Scotland, Arthur Conan Doyle was rejected at a Roman Catholic school, but turned to agnotisicism by his later teens. Initially he trained as a doctor, but when his career in this field did not take fligh, he began writing stories in his spare time, with his first note-worthy work being published in 1887.

In the 1890’s, Conan grew slightly wary of his Sherlock Holmes character and plunged him and Moriarty to their deaths, falling from a waterfall in the novel The Final Problem. An outcry from the public forced Doyle to find a means to bring him back to life.

Amongst his friends was the magaician, Harry Houdini. Following the death of his wife, Doyle had sunk into a depression and sought solace in spiritualism, however his friend Houdini, exposed the tricks of the spiritualist mediums to Conan, but such truths only led to a public falling out between them.
