From Matthew Stewart - "After reading The Hobbit sometime around the sixth grade, I was hooked. From that point on, my humble efforts at picture making (I’ve been drawing for as long as I can remember) have been inspired by a love for all things fantasy. After graduating with a BFA in illustration from Parsons School of Design in 1999, I’ve managed to turn this fascination into a career, working for book publishers and gaming companies, such as Wizards of the Coast, Upper Deck, Tor Books and Duirwaigh Gallery. My work can be seen in multiple Spectrum Annuals, and I’ve had the pleasure of being nominated for a Chesley Award or two. Currently, I live in New Jersey, just across the river from Philadelphia with my wife, Gina (who is also an artist) and two cats, Georgie and Gidget."
The Hound of the Baskervilles is the third of the four crime novels written by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle featuring the detective Sherlock Holmes. Originally serialised in The Strand Magazine from August 1901 to April 1902, it is set largely on Dartmoor in Devon in England's West Country and tells the story of an attempted murder inspired by the legend of a fearsome, diabolical hound of supernatural origin. Sherlock Holmes and his companion Dr. Watson investigate the case. This was the first appearance of Holmes since his apparent death in "The Final Problem", and the success of The Hound of the Baskervilles led to the character's eventual revival.
One of the most famous stories ever written, in 2003, the book was listed as number 128 of 200 on the BBC's The Big Read poll of the UK's "best-loved novel". In 1999, it was listed as the top Holmes novel, with a perfect rating from Sherlockian scholars of 100.
