Happy Birthday to Conan Doyle

It seems that my re-indulgence into the Sherlock Holmes stories has come coincidentally in the same week as Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's birthday.  

Arthur Conan Doyle was born in Edinburgh, Scotland, on the 22nd of May, 1856.  He worked as a physician and a writer, bringing to life the glorious persons of Sherlock Holmes and Dr John Watson, as well as the less known  Professor Challenger.  He produced many novels, historical novels, plays, short stories, and non-fiction works.  He has been credited for not only providing the unchallenged standard for crime fiction, but also some of the best adventure/science fiction literature of all times with his Challenger novels.  He was knighted in 1902 and died 1930 from a heart attack.  

I feel that I have spoken often enough about Conan Doyle's glory as a writer for you to know that little has to be said.  So I would like to say thankyou instead, I think, for the people you introduced us to.
