We’re really looking forward to a cracking line up of Conan Doyle related events at the mighty Edinburgh Fringe Festival this August! We hope you get to make at least one of these fine occasions dedicated to Conan Doyle or even Sherlock Holmes... "It is a peculiar irony that Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s birthplace in Edinburgh’s Old Town, long since demolished is not today marked with a statue of the writer himself but by a statue of his most famous creation - Sherlock Holmes, the character Conan Doyle came to believe was largely responsible for destroying his reputation as a serious literary figure. Perhaps it is understandable; after all, Holmes is the most famous man who never lived.” Russell Miller, The Adventures of Arthur Conan Doyle
