About Sir Arthur Conan Doyle

Arthur Ignatius Conan Doyle was born in 1859 in Edinburgh, Scotland to an Irish Catholic family. He was sent away to school in England to the draconian Stonyhurst College. This was partly to give the boy a good Jesuit education, one which was to destroy his faith, and partly to get him out of the way of his increasingly demented father.

He studied medicine at Edinburgh University and in spite of colleagues of the likes of Robert Louis Stevenson and J M Barrie, was not entirely gripped by his studies there. An adventurer at heart, he spent a year in the middle of his studies as a ship’s surgeon on an Arctic whaler.
It was while he was practicing medicine in Portsmouth that he started writing A Study In Scarlet, what was to be the first of the series of tales about the most famous detective of all time, Sherlock Holmes.

Tales of Terror and Mystery Audiobook

Tales of Terror and Mystery Audiobook
Written by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle
Read by Bill Paterson

Trapped by the strength of the public adoration of his character Sherlock Holmes, Conan-Doyle was desperate to write other works not involving the sleuth. The Tales of Terror and Mystery have all the recognisable qualities that made Conan-Doyle’s work so popular, the attention to gruesome detail the meticulous logic and the intricate and wittily bemusing plotting, yet they are free of the constraints put on Conan-Doyle by Mr Holmes.

These stories let loose the adventurous side of the rational and logical mind that many associate with Conan-Doyle - the side that pulled him away from his medical studies as a young man to the Arctic Circle on a whaling ship and more importantly the side that led him to a firm belief that grew throughout his life in the occult and the spiritual.
