Sunday Slew of News, Reviews and Interviews

Craig Clarke reviews Allan Guthrie.

The Lancashire Evening Post reviews Craig Russell's THE VALKYRIE SONG. And he's interviewed by Craig Sisterson here.

More on Ian Rankin's DARK ENTRIES. And Denise Mina speaks to him about comics on the BBC's Culture Show.

It must be festival season. The Inverness Book Festival - from 5th - 10th October, the Wigtown Festival from September 30th to October 3rd, and a bit of a stushie at the Budleigh Salterton Literary Festival.

Lots and lots of news from Val McDermid with the release of her new book - FEVER OF THE BONE. First of all, she talks about her perfect reader and which literary character resembles her to the FT. And in the Times she talks about violence, lesbianism and being school mates with Gordon Brown. She tells the Herald she is "just a simple writer." And here she is on Agatha Christie.
