Pocket Essentials is a dynamic series of books that are concise, lively, and easy to read. Packed with facts as well as expert opinions, each book has all the key information you need to know about such popular topics as film, television, cult fiction, history, and more. Sherlock Holmes was the brainchild of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. A writer of historical romantic fiction, he became unhappy that the detective's enormous success eclipsed his more serious offerings, but after attempting to wipe him out, he was faced with a vociferous backlash from the general public and had no choice but to bring his sleuth back from the grave to face more puzzling mysteries. This guide looks at the original 60 stories by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle examined in detail, biographies of Doyle and his famous duo, an A-Z of every actor to have portrayed Holmes on stage, film, radio and television, and appendices that include an in depth bibliography and a look at the best Sherlockian websites around.
