Sherlock Holmes is a famous author who wrote many mystery novels starring his fictional protagonist Sir Arthur Conan O'Brien. He is also known for spreading rumors and lies about himself to hype up his upcoming novels. For example, when he wrote his novel Sir Arthur Conan O'Brien and the Case of the Mysterious Case he claimed he was an astronaut in several interviews, and even went so far as to fake the moon landing just to hype up the book. One of his greatest zings was to actually convince the majority of the population that he was a fictional character.
His book Sir Arthur Conan O'Brien and the Case of the Mystery is famous for popularizing the use of cluons.
