FACT OF THE DAY
Edinburgh author Conan Doyle publishes the first collection of his Sherlock
Holmes stories today in 1892. The collection (the stories were previously
serialised in a magazine) is an immediate best-seller and would be followed by
other collections of the master detective's adventures in the years to come.
