Besides Sherlock, Conan Doyle wrote many other books and stories throughout his life. He produced short stories, novels, poems, histories and plays. From mummies, to dinosaurs to fairies and ghosts, Conan Doyle’s interests were impressively wide. He also wrote numerous articles, as well as Spiritualist, scientific and medical works.
Near the end of his life, Conan Doyle became heavily involved with adapting his works for film. The 1925 adaptation of The Lost World was possibly the project he was most proud of. Its revolutionary stop-motion animation which brought the story’s dinosaurs to life was later used to animate the Hollywood blockbuster, King Kong.
