Happy Deathday, Sir Arthur!

Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, creator of the world's foremost consulting detective, died 90 years ago today, on 7th July 1930.

Unsurprisingly, my own work has been influenced by his in more ways than I can count, but most obviously there is the character of Ulysses Quicksilver, from my Pax Britannia steampunk novels, the elements of The Lost World that appear in NEVERLAND - Here Be Monsters!, and of course my contribution to the anthology Further Associates of Sherlock Holmes, edited by George Mann and published by Titan Books, entitled Sherlock Holmes and the Beast of Bodmin.
