During the four years, some 70 authors (or McStorytellers), representing a wealth of Scottish writing talent, have contributed more than 800,000 words to the site in work that is predominantly edgy, often irreverent and, above all, distinctly Scots.
We’ve also developed as a book publisher in our own right. In addition to three anthologies of our short stories, we’ve published paperback and Kindle versions of over 30 books on behalf of regular McStorytellers. And there are more publications in the pipeline.
By a very happy coincidence, we’ll shortly be presenting our 500th short story. It comes from the pen of the ever-controversial Dundee-born writer Kirsty Eccles. And it’s a cracker! So please watch this space.
Meantime, it’s a muckle McThank You from McStorytellers to all our contributors and all our readers.
Meantime, too, here’s another chance to read the story that kicked it all off four years ago. It’s called Ping Time. It’s written by Mister McStoryteller himself, Brendan Gisby. And it depicts a real-life office megalomaniac, who, Brendan says, is alive and kicking today in the good city of Glasgow, where he masquerades as a business guru. Enjoy!
