As a keen Bensonite, I gave vent to my enthusiasm with the http//
I have also enjoyed writing some gentle crime stories set in 1930’s Tilling, featuring Fred’s characters. This seems more practicable this year, now that EFB’s works are out of copyright in the UK and most of Europe. I wanted the stories to be true to the spirit of Fred’s writing and to reflect affection and regard, rather than amount to parody. I guess the current term is “fan fiction”? Whatever category my amateur stories may fall into for derision of those better qualified to opine, I have risked collecting them together in a free blog in case fellow aficionados are interested:
Now I have put my head above the parapet, will any other members of the group share their efforts?

Thank you for the link. I shall visit your blog for a read soon. Thanks for sharing with us... new Tilling stories are always welcome :-)

Thanks for the response. There have been 600 or so page views on the blog so far without any comment from fellow Bensonites, so it's good of you to take the trouble. In attempting the linked stories, I tried to remain true to Fred's sensibility - if that's what it should be called - whilst devising my own "add-on" view of Tilling from the Inspector's perspective plus a little farce and melodrama. It was fun imagining a private visit by the formidable Queen Mary, exploring the Sussex countryside of 1934 or so by bicycle and revisiting so many old friends. I do hope you enjoy the stories; they were intended for Fred's fans.

Anything 'Tilling' online is always Welcome - and the Glossary and Inspector Morrison stories are top of the heap!
Anyone who has yet to visit these two sites have missed out on a lot - go, do it now. :-)

Hello, nbtOO or, to appropriate a line from Noel Coward, may I call you n? Cordial greetings, Nancy and thank you for your kind words, which are much appreciated. The Glossary has had over 10,500 page views now, but Inspector Morrison still less than 1,000. I am consoled that, although few in number, the good Inspector's readers, such as yourself, make a very select group, of which Lucia would no doubt approve. Before I lapse further into Chesterfield terms, of which Algernon Wyse might approve, au reservoir....

Should anyone wish to revisit Tilling in the icy throes of
January 1936, there is a new story "Inspector Morrison and the
Mysterious Maharani" at a new Inspector Morrison blog,

Greetings. I have celebrated Fred's birthday week by posting a new story on my "Inspector Morrison: Another Year in Tilling" blog. It is entitled "Inspector Morrison and the Martello Tower Murder" and, hopefully, can be accessed by clicking on,

Have just finished reading the Tower Murder story and have to say how well done it is. I think it tops in your titles - really. I love it.

Thanks Nancy. It means a lot coming from someone who knows Fred's work so well! BI
