Description

The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes

By Sir Arthur Conan Doyle

Total time running: 10 hours 35 minutes

Performed by Patrick Horgan

The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes includes the following stories:

A Scandal in Bohemia, The Red-headed League, A Case of Identity, The Boscombe Valley Mystery, The Five Orange Pips, The Man with the Twisted Lip, The Adventure of the Blue Carbuncle, The Adventure of the Speckled Band, The Adventure of the Engineer's Thumb, The Adventure of the Noble Bachelor, The Adventure of the Beryl Coronet, and The Adventure of the Copper Beeches.

The idea, which vaulted Holmes to stardom very quickly, was that of making him the hero of a continuing series of short stories, which would appear in Strand Magazine, illustrated with those famous Sydney Paget drawings. It is interesting to note that the publisher thought he was engaging the services of Walter Paget but wrote to his brother instead. Thus the famous figure of Holmes was that of Walter Paget, drawn by his brother, and the well-known deerstalker was one of Walter's. The series was an instant success. No writer of that period, including H.G.Wells and Kipling, could sell magazines like Conan Doyle and Sherlock Holmes. The first story appeared in Strand Magazine in July 1891, and he wrote the next sis stories at a fevered pace, about one a week, for 35 pounds each. The tumultuous reception enabled Doyle to increase his price for another six stories to 50 pounds each. The first story, "A Scandal in Bohemia", was the backbone for the Broadway Musical, "Baker Street", and formed the basis of the Doyle/Gillette collaboration, "Sherlock Holmes". Gillette famously asked Doyle if he could marry off the detective: "Do what you like with him!" was the answer. Doyle himself much later wrote a play based on the Speckled Band adventure.
