Abstract

Sir Arthur Conan Doyles' Sherlock Holmes 'canon' consists of 56 short stories and 4 novels published between 1887 and 1927. Holmes first appeared in A Study in Scarlet in 1887 in Beeton's Christmas Annual. Doyle killed off the character in The Adventure of the Final Problem in December 1893. Doyle returned to Holmes in the serialised (1901-2) The Hound of the Baskervilles, which was set before the character's death. Lucrative offers from the Strand Magazine in the UK and Collier's Weekly in the US saw Doyle return once again to the character for a subsequent cycle of stories. The last Doyle story (The Adventure of Shoscombe Old Place) was published in The Strand in 1927.
