*ASIS* didn't affect me nearly as much as the follow-up novel, *Sign of
Four* -- a rollicking adventure as well as a good mystery.  But if you
think that Conan Doyle later put his prejudices aside, you'll find he had
another set of scapegoats in the Masons.  

Regardless, the Conan Doyle Holmes stories are epitomes of exciting
detective stories -- and I highly recommend *Hound of the Baskervilles*
as the best of the lot, a story that succeeds on several levels.
