i've still not read this as it's just arrived but if it's as good as his ghostly northumberland effort i'm sure it will be worth getting!

I get mentions all over Trips - usually on lady toilet walls with the words "is a cunt" after them .. and like with Robs books, I don't get free pussy there ... :cry:

Ha! You give us too much credit. Most of our posts are made up from random copy & pastes from bodies of text elsewhere on the net .. its purely luck which has them make sense .. and luck that will run out one day when the chickens lay their eggs with the hyperdimensional subliminal craft in attendence at the next budget depending on whether Alistair Darling is still chancellor ...

Speak for yourself. Cheers trips.

Just read your bit in this book at the weekend Jay. I didn't realise that it was an account of the Dark figure in the gallery of the Keep. It really quite good. Well done you!

amazon, i got it for about £8, i think it's worth supporting young writers in this field, especially from our region. rob gave me a lot of inspiration when i first started out investigating and i wish him all the best in his future projects :D

If I were you I would ask him if the other 'work' that you did for his previous books was ever used, and if so whether he could send you a copy. It is only fair. I have to give absolutely tons of free mags away to contributors every time a new issue comes out.

Still, it's good to hear he's writing another one.

Yeh, I would be good to get Rob on here. I used to look at his site 'Ghosts of the North East' quite a bit a few years ago, but it rarely seems to be updated now. :(

Oh I didn't know you had written about the railway museum Jay, I thought it was just the Keep.
