Click to download sample chapters

These stories, works of fiction, have Cumbrian settings (especially Furness), although some are imaginary even if based on actual places.
Mystery and imagination: humour and horror, love and hate, joy and sorrow, poignancy and lust. Passions run deep wherever you live.
Each tale has an interesting introduction as to what inspired the story.

“Don’t be fooled by the writings of Gladys Hobson. She appears like a harmless mature woman and so you settle one afternoon to relax into her stories. Then in goes the hot poker and you find the goings on in Ulverston, ignited passion, and Cumbrian emotions. The wicked are saved by pseudonyms, the innocent by their ignorance. This collection is a jigsaw of zeal and a genuine feel for landscape.” — Geoff Nelder Award Winning author of numerous works — latest novel, “Exit, Pursued by a Bee”
