He asked for twice his usual rate per word if The Strand wanted Sherlock Holmes as the hero in The Hound of the Baskervilles and he got it - no argument.His opinions were sought after by reporters, and he was not shy to give them.He was one of the leading lights of Spiritualism.He knew many of the literary men of his time, including Rudyard Kipling, whom he introduced to golf.He popularized skiing and tobogganing in Switzerland.He got V.I.P. treatment wherever he went. The Canadian government asked him to visit Jasper National Park when it opened in 1914, to popularize tourism, and the Canadian Pacific Railway took him and Lady Conan-Doyle there in their President's train.

Did Sherlock Holmes returned after he was killed in his story?

There was a story where Sherlock went over the edge of Reichenbach Falls, called "The Final Problem" in the book The Memoirs of Sherlock Holmes. It was an attempt by Conan Doyle to eliminate the character, whom he had grown tired of. The public outcry was so great, that he brought him back through a clever plot line.You'll find his return in the story "The Adventure of the Empty House" in the book The Return of Sherlock Holmes.Conan Doyle had written a novel between "The Final Problem" and "The Adventure of the Empty House" called "The Hound of the Baskervilles". (published 1901-02) [worth reading] The plot was set before Holmes' death, so that Conan Doyle would not have to resurrect him. He asked (and got) twice as much per word from his publishers, Smith, Elder & Sons to put Holmes into the plot.The book sold so well that both the Strand Magazine and Colliers in the U.S. made Conan Doyle an offer he did not refuse to bring Holmes back from the 'dead' Thus 'The Return of Sherlock Holmes', 'The Valley of Fear', 'The Casebook of Sherlock Holmes' and 'His Last Bow'.
