Now out! Baker Street Irregulars: The Game is Afoot

Sherlock Holmes in modern Melbourne!

My Sherlock Holmes Alternative Universe story, “The Problem of the Three Journals”, has been accepted for Volume 2 of The Baker Street Irregulars anthology, published by Diversion Books.

Here’s Volume One: Baker Street Irregulars: Thirteen Authors With New Takes on Sherlock Holmes

“Three Journals” is set in modern Melbourne; John Watson is former army medic, now a barista with a fine moustache and a penchant for vintage suits. He co-owns The SIgn of Four cafe with his flatmate Sherlock Holmes, a perpetual science student (and violinist for the indie band The Devil’s Foot). They are a pair of savvy Melbourne hipsters who solve mysteries in between pouring shots.

Add it to your Goodreads list: Baker Street Irregulars: The Game is Afoot

The anthology is now available at:

The Game is Afoot as an audiobook!

I wrote about the audiobook a while back –  an Australian actor is reading my Australian take on Holmes and Watson – and it’s now available!
