Welcome to the home of Sebastian Symes

Read Raw promotes creative writing in Scotland

Urban Fantasist, a webzine dedicated to the urban fantasy genre. Along with my own news and book reviews, this site will carry fortnightly flash fiction stories plus interviews with other science fiction & fantasy authors and look at the wider craft of SF&F creative writing.

I have a set of three poems as a prologue.   The piece below is the foreword to the conversations.  

In 'The Case of the Missing Heiress', a Sunday afternoon of research for Sebastian Symes is shattered by the arrival of his old friend and family lawyer Ebenezer Bulrush.

He has lost an heiress to the Fitzwarton fortune and faces ruin.

The only man he can turn to find the missing girl and clear his firm's names is Sebastian Symes.

But the great detective soon finds himself embroiled in a tangled tale of love, deception and family feuds - and he will need to use all his wits to find a solution to one of the knottiest mysteries of his career.

'The Case of the Missing Heiress' is perfect for fans of Sherlock Holmes, Raffles and historical fiction.
