We’re delighted to announce that Aberdeen-based author and veteran McStoryteller Bill Kirton is joining the ranks of our McSerial writers. Starting next week and weekly thereafter, we’ll be publishing a seven-part story of Bill's entitled Death Ship.
Here’s a wee taster of the story, straight from the horse's mouth (sorry, Bill!): 1841 and a simple enough commission: collect a ship and its cargo from Oslo and sail it back to Aberdeen for its new owner, William Anderson. But strong headwinds make for a slow passage and, worse, as the days pass, crew members are being systematically killed in excruciatingly painful ways. Not until they reach safety onshore in Aberdeen is the mystery solved.
So get yourself back here on Wednesday, McSerial Day, for the opening part of Death Ship. And don’t forget, you’ll also be able to read the latest instalments of Annie Christie’s weekly McSerial, The Soundtrack of Our Lives, and Kevin Crowe’s fortnightly McSerial, Behind Bars.
