The rich life Sir Arthur Conan Doyle (1859-
1930) is featured here: his work as a
doctor, his novels and journalistic
writings, his support of Spiritualism and
his defence of fairies. This is a unique set
for the 150th anniversary of his birth.
After his early years in medicine, the
writing talents of Arthur Conan Doyle took
over. Sherlock Holmes and Professor
Challenger were among his successes.
David Timson, an actor and director who
has read the complete Sherlock Holmes
collection for Naxos AudioBooks, has
compiled this commemorative collection
showing the range of Conan Doyle’s life
and work. It includes the 2CD biography
by Hesketh Pearson, The Speckled Band,
an excerpt from The Lost World and his
defence of the Cottingley Fairies.
