About the Author
Sir Arthur Conan Doyle
was born in Edinburgh, Scotland in 1859. He abandoned a promising medical career for the life of a full-time author. Without a doubt, the famous detective Sherlock Holmes is his most popular creation. However, in addition to detective stories, Doyle wrote historical romances, tales of horror and the supernatural, and was a pioneer in the field of Science Fiction. In his later years, Doyles increasing devotion to Spiritualism became his primary mission in life, and he travelled the world as an evangelist for his beliefs. He was knighted in 1902, and died in 1930.
Leslie S. Klinger
is an avid Sherlockian collector and scholar. He is the author of Life and Times of Mr. Sherlock Holmes, John H. Watson, M.D., Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, and Other Notable Personages: A Table of Major Events, co-author of The Date Being?: A Compendium of Chronological Data, co-compiler of the Index to Ronald DeWaals Universal Sherlock Holmes, and numerous articles on the Canon. Les is invested in the Baker Street Irregulars as The Abbey Grange and is a member of many domestic and international societies devoted to Arthur Conan Doyle and the Great Detective. He teaches a course on Sherlock Holmes and His World for UCLA Extension and has lectured at several Sherlockian conferences. He also practices law in Los Angeles, where he lives with his wife Sharon Flaum Klinger. They have five children, two dogs, and a cat.
