Sir Arthur Conan Doyle wrote many types of fiction: mystery, detection, science fiction, and historical adventures. He created many memorable characters, wrote dozens of short stories and more than two dozen novels, yet everything he wrote fell under the the shadow of Sherlock Holmes.

He was also an accomplished teller of tales featuring the weird, the supernatural, and the horrific but, as a result of the immediate association of the author's name and his morst famous creation, many of his excellent stories like The Captain of the Pole Star are not as well known as they would otherwise have been.

The Captain of the Pole Star is the supernatural story of a sea voyage. A ship is trapped behind sheets of ice and, while waiting for a thaw, strange visions are seen and weird sounds are heard. Soon, even stranger things begin to happen. Download and start listening now!

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.
