Three Scottish novels that cross genres, styles and period to deliver some highly engaging story-telling.

George Paterson’s The Girl, The Crow, The Writer And The Fighter is an epistolary tale of murder and chicanery is a study of chaos in instalments.

It’s 1965 and provocative author Henry Miller is taken incognito to an infamous title fight. In the turbulent aftermath of the bout, Miller makes a vital connection with the keeper of a tightly guarded secret. Twenty years later, a young Maine waitress receives an unusual bequest - a bound collection of letters from Miller.

Angela Jackson’s The Darlings is a story about how childhood experience can profoundly impact how we behave as adults.

When Mark Darling is fifteen years old, he is the golden boy, captain of the school football team, admired by all who know him. Until he kills his best friend in a freak accident. He spends the next decade drifting between the therapy couch and dead-end pursuits. Then along comes Sadie. A mender by nature, who tries her best to fix him.

Ross Sayers’ The Everliving Memory of John Valentine combines elements of speculative fiction in a novel that is all too believable.

It’s 2019 and it’s Hannah Greenshields’s first day at Memory Lane, a memory clinic in the centre of Edinburgh which possesses advanced technology that allows clients to relive their favourite memories for a substantial fee. In 1975, John Valentine, a Memory Lane client, is reliving his wedding day over and over again, hoping to change one key event he can’t forget. However, as proceedings become less and less familiar, John realises his memory isn’t such a safe place after all.
