That Friday Feeling

First off, I have it on very good authority (ie straight from the horse's mouth) that the Sunday Herald will feature an article on Scottish Crime Fiction this Sunday.

A preview of the Wigtown Book Festival.

The sequel to Irvine Welsh's TRAINSPOTTING is 'edging closer' to being made. Although not all parties are happy.

This sounds fascinating - a social networking site for McDermid fans.

An interesting article on how to write crime fiction featuring comments from Ian Rankin, Michael Connelly, Mark Billingham and Lee Child amongst others.

Alexander McCall Smith to appear at the Bridport Literary Festival.

And, finally, Edinburgh decides that ambassadors are better than tsars. You are spoiling us ambassador. Now, pass the chocolates.


  1. Your "good authority" was spot on, an article of Scottish crime fiction did indeed appear - with an extra special mention for your good self! Go Donna.
