The Baskerville Hound (1902) Arthur Conan Doyle's good friend Fletcher "Bobbles" Robinson, who took him to visit some fearsome English moors and prehistoric ruins, and told him wonderful local legends about escaped prisoners and a 17th-century aristocrat who fell into conflict with the family dog. Doyle transfigured the legend: generations ago, a hound from hell ripped the throat of the devilish Hugo Baskerville into the moonlit wasteland. Poor, Baskerville Hall now has another mysterious death: that of Sir Charles Baskerville. Could the culprit somehow be mixed up with secret servant Barrymore, Story-obsessed Dr. Frankland, Stapleton chasing butterflies, or Selden, the Notting Hill killer in general? Someone's been pointing candles at the windows of the mansion. Nor can supernatural forces be ruled out. Can Dr. Watson, left alone by Sherlock Holmes as a detective for fear of much of the novel, save the next Baskerville, Sir Henry, from the fangs of the hound?
