I few years ago I borrowed a book of short stories from the library with one of Simon's stories in it. I placed over a few of the others and enjoyed a fantasy one, taking place in a city. One of the story elements I remember is the main character was investigating something, I believe a death, and they ended up at a hotel. There they found either a small girl or animated doll had dealt with the criminal at hand. I know its not a lot to go on but I was hoping someone here would know white collection it came from, or the author. I'm not sure if the story tied into a larger series but if so I was hoping to looking at some of their other work. Thank you, I apologize for such little information

I can't answer your query directly, but if you read the reviews of some of these, some reviews list every short story and it may just jog your memory.

If in doubt, go the source.... I sent the post to Simon, unfortunately the reply doesn't help you at all!!

There you go;

'Sorry, it’s not one of mine, and it doesn’t ring a bell for me. Reminds me a bit of that Buffy story, with the demon-inhabited ventriloquist’s dummy... '

Oh I know which Buffy episode he's talking about!
Wasn't the dummy a demon hunter though? I sort of remember the dummy was the good guy.
