Just wanted to mention that my friend and fellow writer, Allyson Bird, has her first collection released from Screaming Dreams this week. BULL RUNNING FOR GIRLS features 21 short stories covering the horror and adventure genres and has an introduction by Gary McMahon. It’s been recommended by Laird Barron on his blog here, where he compares her work favourably against writers like Matt Cardin, Mark Samuels, and Don Tumasonis. This sounds like a cracking read and the extracts I’ve seen so far have been superb. At a mere £9.99 plus postage, it’s a bargain for what will be the debut book from a writer with a very promising future. Click here to order.
