Canonical Search Engine

The 60 stories of Sherlock Holmes written by Arthur Conan Doyle are called The Canon. There is 4 novels and 56 short stories published between 1887 and 1927. However, sherlockians playing The Game and convinced of the real existence of Sherlock Holmes think the stories written by Watson himself, and Conan Doyle as an literary agent. Other stories written by other writers does not belong to the Canon, even those written by Conan Doyle's son, Adrian. These are pastiches and cannot be used when studying Sherlock Holmes. The stories mentioned by Watson but not published are called Untold Stories, they are canonical but only the title remains.
