That's SIR Arthur Conan Doyle

Look at that guy. He created Sherlock Holmes. In his later years, he was depressed and got into Spiritualism, leading to a falling out with Harry Houdini.

So I was laying in bed this morning, listening off and on to Prairie Home Companion, and one of their skits featured of ghost of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle dropping a book on the head of a man who wanted to close a library. It reminded me that I had this recording, where Doyle mentions Poe and talks about the "spirit world".

He sounds how he looks.

Man, what a voice. Didn't he go around making speaking appearances for money?
