The Sir Arthur Conan Doyle Reader: From Sherlock Holmes to Spiritualism

Arthur Conan Doyle, Author, Meyers Jeffrey, Author, Jeffrey Meyers, Editor Cooper Square Publishers $28.95 (544p) ISBN 978-0-8154-1202-1
Sherlock Holmes buffs curious about the writings of Dr. Watson's ""literary agent"" could do worse than to start with The Sir Arthur Conan Doyle Reader: From Sherlock Holmes to Spiritualism, edited by biographer Jeffrey Meyers (Orwell: Wintry Conscience of a Generation, etc.) and Valerie Meyers. One may question the need to reprint major Holmes material (part one of A Study of Scarlet, ""The Adventure of the Empty House,"" etc.), though in context with lesser known work (excerpts from The Stark Munro Letters, The Crime of the Congo and The Wanderings of a Spiritualist; ""The Brown Hand,"" ""Danger!"" and other stories), they help illuminate the full range of a prolific author whose nondetective output has been largely forgotten.
