Caledonia Dreamin'

Glaikit, mockit, droukit, drouthy, couthy, scunner, thrawn – the Scots language is rich with words too gallus not to glory in, dialect terms that deserve better than to be boxed away as precious oddities. Here we've collected some of the strangest writers of Scottish descent to bring these terms to life - that's Scottish by heritage or residence, adoption or initiation...

    Sweeter Than, Neil Williamson
    Maw, Wendy Muzlanova
    Maukit, Brian Milton
    Fallen through a Giant's Eyes, T.J. Berg
    Newayr, Douglas Thompson
    The Bouk Puppie Show, Preston Grassman
    The Laird of Nagasaki, Tom Bradley
    Palais 1930, Rob McClure Smith
    The Losers, Angus McAllister
    Drive the Warlike Angles into the Sea!!!, Nick Mamatas
    Widows in the World, Gavin Grant
    I am not (), Phil Raines 
    Studying Honeybloods with the Queen of Exotica, Kirsty Logan
    Mary, Thomas and Joe, Stravaigin, David McGroarty
    For Your Guising, Gio Clairval
    Nae Greeance o' Bane, Tim Jarvis
    Bowfin Island, Anna Tambour

It’s almost as if there’s a pulse throbbing through all the stories that insists you follow along with the beat. The book looks the readers straight in the eyes, demands attention and triggers reactions in a range from sadness, through nausea, to laughter.
