Thomas Companella…

*

A renaissance artist who achieved fame

and fortune by articulating the religious

doctrines of his mistress, a wealthy

Florentine dedicated to the church.

*

At the height of his fame a schism betwixt the

two developed with Companella proclaiming

the ascendency of nature’s rule while his mistress

held to the purer geometric forms of God.

*

In order that his most famous work, a depiction of

Christ on the cross, be seen the municipal art gallery

displaying it had, every day, to reconstruct its production

from start to finish to the accompaniment of music.

*

This operatic endeavour became a wonder of

the artistic and ecclesiastical worlds though it did

little to reconcile the now bitterly feuding couple.

*

Toward the end of his career a reconciliation of

sorts was achieved when the couple sorted out their

differences by correspondence and agreed to meet.

*

Both were killed in freak accidents on the

way to their designated meeting place after

following the agreed instructions to the letter.

KITH ‘N’ KIN

The Beeley Stone, ‘liberated’ from the churchyard at Bakewell, stands proudly in the centre of its village green once more. While the locals enjoy the fruits of its restoration, Ben, who had led the daring raid against authority, still languishes in jail.

Don and Wen, arrested and released without explanation in Ireland, now plot an erratic course through the wild places of Wales, while Jaw-Dark and Kraas, seeking the legendary stone of Fergus Mac Roy, have been separated in the most uncanny of circumstances…

As the darkness closes around them, the Black Shade haunts the moors above Beeley and, in the shadowy rooms of the old tower, an ancient and even stranger story begins to unfold…
