Enter the Metaphyiscal Detective (at SH)


“How the Mermaid Lost Her Song” is this week’s fiction at Strange Horizons.

The editors of said magazine asked that I give the Metaphysical Detective a name, so he has one now, thereby obscuring the fact (slightly) that this is one of his stories. Though, since “Upon Drinking a Half Glass of the Olde Saturnine Toad” was released in a limited market, we should probably consider HtMLHS his first appearance.

So, I give you DI Charles Beamish Phreniwit, a character whose popularity has surprised me. But, that is what they’re supposed to do, isn’t it?
