Arthur Conan Doyle didn't just write Sherlock Holmes. The erstwhile GP and opthalmologist also dabbled in medical fiction. #LibraryBog investigates: https://www.rcseng.ac.uk/library-and-publications/library/blog/the-stark-munro-letters/ Alongside his detective stories, Conan Doyle wrote fiction inspired by his experiences of medical practice. His novella The Stark Munro Letters (1895) follows the early struggles of a young practitioner. In a series of letters to an old friend, Stark Munro describes his failed attempts to conduct a partnership with his eccentric university friend, Cullingworth, and his efforts to launch his own private practice in the small town of Birchespool.
