Lord Peter Death Bredon Wimsey DSO is the fictional protagonist in a series of detective novels and short stories by Dorothy L. Sayers (and their continuation by Jill Paton Walsh). A dilettante who solves mysteries for his own amusement, Wimsey is an archetype for the British gentleman detective. Lord Peter is often assisted by his valet and former batman, Mervyn Bunter; his good friend and later brother-in-law, police detective Charles Parker; and in a few books by Harriet Vane, who becomes his wife.

Tyler Is Not Here
This is a big heavy book, arranged alphabetically, listing every imaginable entry found in the Wimsey novels or short stories. I think it might be easier to use if it was arranged in sections under each individual book or story title; however one must give the compiler credit for thoroughness.(It's true that many entries appear in more than one book.) If you don't know to whom Sayers is referring by the name "Jane Austen," you will find an entry for her, or "Alexander." Haven't got that far, but am expecting an entry when I get there for "Shakespeare, William." I can't imagine anyone wanting to look up, for instance, a character who doesn't even appear in the books, but is mentioned at second hand as a crony of a very minor character, such as Bert Ruddle's pal in "Busman's Honeymoon." I guess the compiler operated on the principle of: when in doubt, put it in. On the other hand, I would have liked longer entries for some quotations, where the book only gives slightly more than is in the novel.

With the present availability of the internet, including Wikipedia, I think you could find all the important references online.

Paricularly useful are the French and Latin, etc., translations, since Sayers was constantly quoting foreign expressions.

In short, unless you find a cheap copy of this and are a constant re-reader of Sayers, save your money.

Readers of Sayers may like to learn that a second edition of the Lord Peter Wimsey Companion, revised and much expanded, was published in 2002 by the Dorothy L Sayers Society. I designed and typeset the book which was written by the dedicated author of the first edition, Stephan P Clarke.
