There’s some manly advice à la Irvine Welsh in Sound Counsel by The Lads from the pen of Edinburgh-based Geordie Lee Carrick. (Like much of Lee’s work, this is not a tale for the easily offended.)
There’s an atmospheric piece of crime flash in Tomorrow Has Been Cancelled by the Flashmaster himself, Perth-born Bill Robertson. (There’s lots more to come from Bill in the coming weeks, by the way.)
And there’s a beautifully evoked portrait of a South American peasant girl in Imagining Maria by Motherwell-born Gordon Gibson.
Enjoy. And watch out for the first of our Being Scots McCompetition entries coming next.
