‘Pole-Star’ first published in 1883

Temple Magazine first published ‘The Captain of the Pole-star’ in 1883.

I was surprised to learn that it was one of ACD’s very earliest stories.

  1. Interesting. Are you familiar with the writings of William Hope Hodgson (The House on the Borderland)? He was either heavily influenced by Captain of the Polestar, or there’s some common literary ancestor. The style is very similar.

    It’s been a long time since I studied this stuff. Hm. Further research is indicated.
