Sherlock Holmes is a fictional detective of the late 19th and
early 20th centuries, who first appeared in publication in 1887. Created
by British author Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, Holmes is identified as a
"consulting detective" in the stories. Known for his uncanny
proficiency with observation, forensic science, and logical reasoning,
which he utilizes to startling effect, Holmes solves mysteries large and
small much to the continued amazement of his partner Dr. Watson.
Sherlock Holmes is arguably the world’s most famous
fictional private detective and is one of the best-known and most
universally recognizable literary characters in any genre. Considered by
many a British cultural icon, Holmes and his stories have had a
profound and lasting effect on mystery writing and popular culture as a
whole, with both the original stories as well as thousands of others
written by authors other than Conan Doyle being adapted into stage and
radio plays, television, films, video games, and other media for over
one hundred years.
Conan Doyle wrote four novels and
fifty-six short stories that featured Holmes. All but four stories were
narrated by Holmes' friend and biographer, Dr. John H. Watson, two
having been narrated by Holmes himself, and two others written in the
third person. The first two stories, short novels, appeared in Beeton's
Christmas Annual for 1887 and Lippincott's Monthly Magazine in 1890. The
character grew tremendously in popularity with the beginning of the
first series of short stories in The Strand Magazine in 1891. Further
series of short stories and two serialized novels appeared almost right
up to Conan Doyle's death in 1930. The tales cover a period from around
1878 up to 1903, with a final case in 1914.
