A selection of short stories by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, the creator of Sherlock Holmes. AUTHOR: Sir Arthur Conan Doyle will always be remembered for his immortal creation Sherlock Holmes. But Sir Arthur was a prolific writer and left a huge legacy of other work, especially novels and short stories.

These 4 tales are taken from Tales of the Camp, Tales of Mystery and Tales of Medical Life. ABRIDGER: Grant Eustace works as a writer in a variety of fields, from film to print, and especially in creating video and DVD programmes for the corporate sector, in both drama and documentary formats, of which he has scripted over 300. But he started professionally by writing plays for BBC Radio 4 and ever since has returned regularly to both radio and audio. Before working on these tales he had dramatised 24 of the Sherlock Holmes short stories for audio publication and originated a tongue-in-cheek radio series, Second Holmes, about the descendants of Holmes and Watson.

READER: Mark Straker trained at the Central School of Speech and Drama. He has twice been a member of the BBC Radio Drama Company, appearing in over 600 plays, including The Tempest with Sir John Gielgud.

About the Author

Sir Arthur Conan Doyle (1859–1930) was born of Irish parentage in Scotland. He studied medicine at the University of Edinburgh, but he also had a passion for storytelling. His first book introduced that prototype of the modern detective in fiction, Sherlock Holmes. Despite the immense popularity Holmes gained throughout the world, Doyle was not overly fond of the character and preferred to write other stories. Eventually popular demand won out and he continued to satisfy readers with the adventures of the legendary sleuth. He also wrote historical romances and made two essays into pseudoscientific fantasy: The Lost World and The Poison Belt.
