CertainlyMoreLate in the 1870s, the young Arthur Conan Doyle submitted a ghost story, The Haunted Grange of Goresthorpe, to BLACKWOODS MAGAZINE in Edinburgh. It was never published, and Conan Doyle seems to have believed it had been destroyed. Certainly BLACKWOODS never returned his manuscript, which remained in their files until the companys archives were presented to The National Library of Scotland in 1942. History reminds us that Conan Doyle went on to greater things, not least the creation of master detective Sherlock Holmes- but the name Goresthorpe Grange remained in his mind, and he was later to use it in another story, Selecting a Ghost, which appeared in 1883 - a few short years after composition of the lost story. By arrangement with the copyright holders and The National Library of Scotland, The Arthur Conan Doyle Society is now pleased to present the first publication of The Haunted Grange of Goresthorpe.This historic edition, the first wholly unpublished story by Arthur Conan Doyle to appear in seventy years, features the complete text of the story- prefatory remarks by Charles Foley and Ian D. McGowan, Librarian of The National Library of Scotland- a comprehensive introduction by Owen Dudley Edwards- and an afterword by Christopher Roden.
