Sherlockian Interview - DJ Tyrer

Posted by Steve Emecz on

With the upcoming launch of volumes 43-45 of The MX Book of New Sherlock Holmes Stories (currently on Kickstarter), we're talking to the authors involved. Today (4th April) it's DJ Tyrer.



Tell us a little about yourself – Where you live and your main hobbies.

I studied History and Welsh History at the University of Wales at Aberystwyth. I live in the seaside city of Southend-on-Sea in Essex, England, close to the world’s longest pleasure pier. When I’m not writing, my hobbies and interests include history, roleplaying, wargaming, and conlanging.

What’s the name of your story in this collection, and what is it about (with no spoilers)?

My story is A Generous Helping of Deceit and involves a murder and a theft, which Holmes finds tediously uninteresting, and a family squabble that has tarnished an optician’s reputation and has the detective’s full attention due to its peculiar muddle of conflicting claims.

What other projects have you recently completed that we can check out?

Amongst my most-recent published stories are a fantasy story, The Cave and The Lyre, in Troubadours and Space Princesses (Hemelein Publications) and a science-fantasy story, Blood of Heaven in Borne in the Blood (Wolfsinger Publications).

Last year, I had Sherlock Holmes fiction in three volumes from Belanger Books – The Case of the Yellow Sign in Sherlock Holmes: Adventures in the Realms of HP Lovecraft: Volume One, The Japanese Village Mystery in Sherlock Holmes: A Year of Mystery 1885, and The Secret of the Stolen Samovar in Steel True, Blade Straight 2023 Annual.
