Conan Doyle’s Other Writing

New Arthur Conan Doyle Stories to go on display at National Library of Scotland

According to the Scotsman newspaper, recently discovered stories written by Arthur Conan Doyle in his youth are to be put on display at the National Library of Scotland.

They were originally not published because of Arthur Conan Doyle’s publishers, John Murray, branded the tales as ‘not very good’!

To quote the Scotsman story:

The stories include The Ghosts of Goresthorpe Grange which Conan Doyle wrote as an 18-year-old student in Edinburgh.

It contains characters similar to Holmes and Dr Watson and suggests Conan Doyle was experimenting with these ideas from a young age.

Another website, Deadline News, provides some more detail on the story about Conan Doyle’s lost tales.

If they didn’t include Dr Watson then I’m not sure if they’re worth bothering with personally…
