About this book: 

Name *

With strong characters and a gripping plot, the well-defined settings create an atmosphere of paranoia and danger. The exciting denouement has a surprising twist and is set on Schiehallion. The introduction includes a section on how to read the Scots in this book, Matthew has made the spelling as straightforward as possible for a population used to English spelling conventions.


Matthew Fitt will do for prose in Scots what Hugh MacDiarmid did for poetry in Scots.  James Robertson, Edinburgh International Book Festival, 2000

A cracker.  Geraldine Brennan, Times Educational Supplement

...going where no man has gone before.  Stepehen Naysmith, The Herald

After an initial shock, readers of this sprightly and imaginative tale will begin to relish its verbal impetus, where a standard Lallans, laced with bits of Dundonian and Aberdonian, is stretched and skelped to meet the demands of cyberjannies and virtual hoorhooses ... I recommend an entertaining and groundbreaking book.  Edwin Morgan
