Wednesday Snippets

Little Brown has bought the rights to two further novels in Alex Gray's Lorimer and Brightman series.

For fans of Alexander McCall Smith, he'll be taking readers' questions at the Globe and Mail until June 10th.

And in Festival news, apart from the fact that I am really looking forward to seeing The Kings of Leon, The Yeah Yeah Yeahs and Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds at T In The Park (which I'm sure nobody reading this is excited about), and I'm seriously thinking of going to the Wickerman Festival there are a number of book festivals in Scotland which are looking good.

The Edinburgh Book Festival programme will be released on 11 June. The festival takes place between 15th and 31st August and is always great to visit.

The Borders Book Festival (between 18th and 21st June) has a number of excellent events, including Ian Rankin and Christopher Brookmyre

A stellar line up including Iain Banks, Ali Smith and Roddy Doyle will be at the Wigtown Book Festival from 25th September to 4th October.

All those - and you even get to use proper loos...


  1. How I wish I didn't have to go to work, with all these great events going on....

  2. Me too Maxine! Wouldn't it be nice to just go from crime fiction event to crime fiction event, blogging and reading your way though the UK?
