My story is one which you may well treasure up in your memories, and tell again to others, for it is not likely that in this whole county of Hampshire, or even perhaps in all England, there is another left alive who is so well able to speak from his own knowledge of these events, or who has played a more forward part in them.

Arthur Conan Doyle, Micah Clarke, Tale of the Monmouth Rebellion

Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s Sherlock Holmes stories are classics of western literature. But most people don’t realize that he was also among the best historical novelists of his day. Between 1888 and 1906 he wrote ten historically-oriented books, covering events ranging from the Hundred Years War to the 19th Century British occupation of Egypt. Fireship Press is pleased to make some of these novels available once again to modern audiences.
