Eastwood's History of Ecclesfield is worth mentioning --didn't I once see somewhere on Sheffield History that someone had posted the entire book on here?

Add to novels with a local background --Put Yourself in His Place by Charles Reade. This is a novel about the Sheffield Outrages and the Flood of 1964.

The Good Lion by Len Doherty is also a novel based on Sheffield. The author was a feature writer on The Star.

Wobble To Death by Peter Lovesey is a crime novel with a Victorian setting, and Peter Lovesey based his main character on the famous Sheffield pedestrian athlete George Littlewood.

Off hand, I cannot think of the titles, but pre-war there was a journalist called J.L.Hodson who wrote a number of novels, and one or two of these were set in Sheffield.

Is it this map of where the bombs fell taken from the book referred to by Dunsbyowl in post #2?
