Happy birthday, Arthur Conan Doyle.

Arthur Conan Doyle, creator of Sherlock Holmes and the bull-like Professor Challenger, was born today in 1859. He died in 1930.

For all things Sherlockian, go here. Valancourt Books has recently reprinted Conan Doyle's Round the Red Lamp, his collection of medical short stories.

And things are beginning to look up for Undershaw, Conan Doyle's home during the writing of The Hound of the Baskervilles.

Indeed. I'm sure Sir Arthur thanks you from the afterlife. And we at the Baker Street Blog thank you as well.

Best wishes on your pursuits post-radio show!
