Sir Arthur Conan Doyle (1859 - 1930) the man who gave the world Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson probably never dreamed, when he started his writing career that his creations would become the focus what has over the years become an entire industry. His canon of Holmes and Watson adventures, fifty-six short stories and four novels, has been reproduced more times and in more different mediums then any other detective stories in the history English literature.
