Nils Clausson is Professor Emeritus at the University of Regina (Regina, Saskatchewan, Canada), where he taught from 1984 to 2014. He specialized in Victorian and early twentieth-century British literature. One of the courses he taught was a history of detective fiction, which led to his book on the fiction of Arthur Conan Doyle, a study shortlisted for the 2019 H. R. F. Keating Award. Writers on which he has published articles include Benjamin Disraeli, Matthew Arnold, H. G. Wells, Oscar Wilde, Joseph Conrad, D. H. Lawrence, and Arthur Conan Doyle. His non-academic interests include theatre, and that passion led him to direct several plays for Regina Little Theatre (an amateur community theatre) in the 2000s.
Nils' literary criticism also includes over 35 articles on Charles Dickens, Elizabeth Gaskell, G. K. Chesterton, Siegfried Sassoon, George Orwell, and Wilfred Owen, as well as on such topics as genre theory, detective fiction, the poetry of the Great War, and fin-de-siècle aestheticism. His articles on Conan Doyle have appeared in The Victorian Newsletter, Journal of Narrative Theory, English Literature in Transition, and the Journal of Popular Culture.
Under Cambridge Scholars Publishing, Nils has authored Arthur Conan Doyle’s Art of Fiction: A Revaluation.
Nils outlined his experience working with Cambridge Scholars Publishing in the following words:
“I have found my relationship with Cambridge Scholars a rewarding and satisfying one. The editors provided guidance at every stage of the publishing process, and were quick to respond to my queries. I have no hesitation in recommending CSP, especially to first-time authors who may find the publishing process a little daunting.”
