An Ideal English Gentleman
Earlier this month we announced the completion of The Conan Doyle Estate Character Collection - an original body of work examining the famous and lesser known cast members of Conan Doyle's repertoire.
Over the next couple of months we'll be shining a spotlight on these remarkable profiles which range from Captain Sharkey, Brigadier Gerard, Sherlock Holmes, Professor Challenger to Victorian London, The Scotland Yarders, The Baker Street Irregulars to Conan Doyle himself.
The contributors cover the Anglosphere to present the profiles in many different voices, showing how they have been depicted in illustrations and dramatisations over the years. This work developing each character's artistic life off the printed page helps us to fulfil our mission to continue to broaden the appeal of Conan Doyle’s works to an increasing demographic and new audiences.
A Spotlight on... Conan Doyle, Himself.
Daniel Stashower is well qualified to take on the weighty role of profiling Conan Doyle's character...

He is a professional writer, a member of the Baker Street Irregulars, and a three-time winner of the Edgar Award from the Mystery Writers of America.
