Scottish by birth, anarchist by persuasion, odd bikes and obscure comics by collection. Retired from thirty years of front line child protection, he lives between Scotland and British Columbia with wife, three adult sons, and a blessing of grandchildren. Allan has penned reportage, articles, and fi ction since the early eighties for variety of motorcycle magazines: a€˜Canadian Bikera€™, a€˜Back Street Heroesa€™ (GB), a€˜Bikera€™ and a€˜Renegadea€™ (USA). Poke and Uber have their real life counterparts in his stable, and the most recent build is a a€˜31/a€™48 Chout (Chief/ Scout) bobber. As for the magic...? Well, thata€™s really up to you. a€˜Tinker Tales Unhalloweda€™ is a collection of previously unpublished short stories celebrating magic and motorcycles. Tinker is the son of an absentee Irish gypsy dad and a Scottish mother, raised poor and turned out on the streets after her death in his early teens. Blood will out, and he becomes a trader in iron ponies, only to become enmeshed in the coils of magic. Somehow he survives a sorcerera€™s apprenticeship to Magic John, a notorious gutter-mage, as detailed in previous collections: a€˜Tinker Talesa€™ (voted Fiction of the Year by motorcyclefi ction.com) and a€˜Tinker Tales Untolda€™ (Book of the Month, motorcyclefi ction.com). Yet trouble and temptation lurk around every corner. Here, Tinker hazards an alternative Britain, runs into an unusual outlaw club, and turns tables on a temptress. Life may be dangerous, yet never dull. Ride behind him a few miles, and discover the forgotten realms of magic. a€˜Tinker Tales Unhalloweda€™ is illustrated by the British artist, Louise Limb.Being served homemadestovies and oatcakes, hotoff the griddle, with anothermug of strong teaa€”could it getany better? a€œWould yoube havina#39; a wee dram?a€ The womana#39;s voice acquired a broad, honestface, cheeks redasher mana#39;s nose.
