Arthur Ignatius Conan Doyle

Arthur Ignatius Conan Doyle was born May 22, 1859 in the capital of Scotland, Edinburgh in the family of an artist and architect.

After Arthur was nine years old, he went to the Hodder boarding school, a preparatory school for Stonyhurst (a large closed Catholic school in Lancashire). Two years later, Arthur moved from Hodder to Stonyhurst. It was during these difficult years at the boarding school that Arthur realized that he had a talent for writing stories. In his final year, he publishes a college journal and writes poetry. In addition, he went in for sports, mainly cricket, in which he achieved good results. Thus, by 1876 he was educated and was ready to meet the world.

Arthur decided to take up medicine. In October 1876, Arthur became a student at the Medical University of Edinburgh. While studying, Arthur could meet with many future famous authors such as James Barry and Robert Louis Stevenson, who also attended the university. But the greatest influence was exerted on him by one of his teachers, Dr. Joseph Bell, who was a master of observation, logic, conclusions, and error detection.

Jules Verne

Jules Verne is an extremely popular French writer, the founder of science fiction along with Herbert George Wells. Verne’s works, written for both adolescents and adults, captured the adventurous spirit of the 19th century, its charm, scientific progress and inventions. Most of his novels were written in the form of travel notes that take readers to the moon in “From Earth to the Moon” or in a completely different direction – in “Journey to the Center of the Earth”. Many of Verne’s ideas turned out to be prophetic. Among his most famous books is the adventure novel Around the World in 80 Days (1873).

“Ah – what a journey – what a wonderful and unusual journey! We entered the Earth through one volcano, and came out through another. And this other one was more than twelve thousand leagues from Sneffels, from this dreary country of Iceland … We left the area of ​​eternal snows and left behind a gray fog of icy open spaces to return to the azure sky of Sicily! ”(From“ Journey to the Center of the Earth ”, 1864) Continue reading

With this discovery, the boy grew an interest in books, and he began to spend all his free time reading.

In 1959, Terry entered Wycombe High School of Technology. He published the first story, The Hades Business, in a school magazine in 1961, and in 1963 the same story appeared in a professional publication. Terry spent his first fee on a typewriter.
