You know Arthur Conan Doyle as the stereotypically 'Victorian' author of the Sherlock Holmes stories which, on the lavishly-illustrated pages of the Strand Magazine, captivated and defined the late nineteenth-century marketplace for popular fiction and magazine publishing. This book tells the story of that relationship and the aftermath its enormous success as author and publication sought to shepherd their determinedly Victorian audience through the problems and crises of the early twentieth century. Here you can discover the Conan Doyle who used his public platform to fight for divorce reform, for the rights of colonised peoples, for State welfare programmes, for the abolition of blood sports and who, even in his last years, foresaw the coming of the Second World War, the Cold War and the age of weapons of mass destruction. The twentieth-century Conan Doyle was not a man with his eyes fixed upon the past but determinedly responding to a changing world with as much vigour and commitment as any modernist writer.

"Arthur Conan Doyle's name is synonymous with The Strand magazine, chiefly because of the Sherlock Holmes stories but also due to many of his other contributions, such as the Professor Challenger stories, his articles on spiritualism and fairies, and his coverage of the major battles of the First World War. For almost forty years from 1891 until his death in 1930, more than 250 contributions by Doyle appeared in The Strand, including 120 stories, 9 serialized novels, and dozens of other items. This was a considerable proportion of his total writing output, and it is impossible fully to appreciate Conan Doyle's artistic development without considering the context of The Strand, as the magazine published almost all of his most important stories. But it also published essays, commentary and other works that have become unjustly forgotten, overshadowed by the worldwide fame of Sherlock Holmes. Doyle's contributions to The Strand highlight, for example, his abilities as a sportsman--an interest which frequently found its way into his fiction. This book gives a broader picture of Conan Doyle's life and work, focused through the lens of The Strand magazine. It charts his outlook and views, examines his shifting reputation during his lifetime, and assesses how Doyle's contributions to The Strand fit into his overall output as a writer. Doyle and The Strand helped each other to build a successful reputation, together establishing detective fiction as a distinct genre and leading to the growth of the popular fiction magazine as an important medium in the early 20th century."--Dust jacket.

Concentrating on works by authors such as Fergus Hume, Arthur Conan Doyle, Grant Allen, L.T. Meade, and Marie Belloc Lowndes, Christopher Pittard explores the complex relation between the emergence of detective fictions in the 1880s and 1890s and the concept of purity. The centrality of material and moral purity as a theme of the genre, Pittard argues, both reflected and satirised a contemporary discourse of degeneration in which criminality was equated with dirt and disease and where national boundaries were guarded against the threat of the criminal foreigner. Situating his discussion within the ideologies underpinning George Newnes's Strand Magazine as well as a wide range of nonfiction texts, Pittard demonstrates that the genre was a response to the seductive and impure delights associated with sensation and gothic novels. Further, Pittard suggests that criticism of detective fiction has in turn become obsessed with the idea of purity, thus illustrating how a genre concerned with policing the impure itself became subject to the same fear of contamination. Contributing to the richness of Pittard's project are his discussions of the convergence of medical discourse and detective fiction in the 1890s, including the way social protest movements like the antivivisectionist campaigns and medical explorations of criminality raised questions related to moral purity.
