Before Sherlock

Sherlock fans may be interested in news that Arthur Conan Doyle's first novel, was published for the first time this week.

The Narrative of John Smith was released by the British Library on Monday. "The novel, written between 1883 and 1884, gives a fascinating insight into this early period of the author's creative development, only a few years before his creation of Sherlock Holmes would earn him an enduring place in the history of English literature."
