Arthur Conan Doyle: Beyond Baker Street

By Janet B. Pascal | Go to book overview

FURTHER READING

The best source for information on Arthur Conan Doyle is his own autobiography, Memories and Adventures. All his letters and papers have been tied up in lawsuits and unavailable since the early 1930s, shortly after his death. Only John Lamond, John Dickson Carr, and Pierre Nordon were able to see these papers before they were withdrawn. Every biography that has been published since that time has been restricted to the material they quoted.
