Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s tales have inspired generations of readers and created thousands of Sherlock Holmes fans. Dr. Richard Caplan, a Sherlock Holmes expert, recently published a book concerning Doyle’s famous detective. Using his background in medicine and his love of literature, Dr. Caplan explores what has contributed to the longevity and popularity of Sherlock, his partner Watson, his archenemy Moriarty, and the rest of the Sherlock universe. This special interest in the subject also allows exploration of life in Britain at the start of the twentieth century. It’s as close as you can get to 221B Baker St. in Iowa!
