Penistone's Author

Allyson Bird's book 'Bull Running for Girls' ISBN: 978-1-906652-01-2 (aimed at adults) is a very readable collection of short supernatural/dark fiction stories, 'where adventure meets horror'. Some of the stories are set around Penistone and Cubley. I found it to be good and compelling reading and I loved the spooky cover illustrations. Allyson says: "My stories are set in all the countries that I’ve travelled to and lived in, including China, Italy, Spain.... Cubley. The lady on the intro isn’t me but was photographed by the award-winning artist Vincent Chong."

Within this collection are "Females who cause trouble, some who help you out of it and some who just can’t leave it alone." Also described as "... a writer of organized chaos. Her work is Halloween candy with razor blades in it."

Another collection is out: 'Wine and Rank Poison', published by Dark Regions Press. The cover of Allyson's debut novel 'Isis Unbound' is on her website now and the book will be out soon. Its title appears to be an interesting twist on Helena Blavatsky's mystical book: 'Isis Unveiled', which was published by the Theosophical Society a century before 'MacDonna' threw money at them'.
