Bella Caledonia, Celebrating 15 Years Writing
Very pleased to have finally published this collection of writing from the past fifteen years work, it’s a bumper anthology published by Leamington Books on February 24th.
It’s an eclectic mix of essays, rants, polemic and long-form articles on Scottish politics, culture, society and ecology. After years of almost constant publishing (I’ve written 1977 articles since 2007) and trying to cover the monumental upheavals of Scottish, British and global politics, it’s really good to draw breath and take stock and look back.
It also feels important to appreciate the rich diversity of styles of writing that includes contributions by Kathleen Jamie, Raman Mundair, Irvine Welsh, Dougald Hine, AL Kennedy, Dougie Strang, Christopher Silver, Peter Arnott, Amna Saleem, Alan Bissett, Pat Kane, Gerry Hasan, Stuart Christie, Neil Cooper, Alistair Davidson, Meaghan Delahunt, Chloe Farand, Katie Gallogly-Swan, George Gunn, Scott Hames, George Kerevan, Laura Cameron-Lewis, Abi Lightbody, Caitlin Logan,Iain MacKinnon, Max Macleod, Jamie Maxwell, Cait O’Neill McCullagh, Mairi McFadyen, Alastair McIntosh, Alison Phipps, Brian Quail, Adam Ramsay, George Rosie, Rory Scothorne, Claire Squires, Paul Tritschler.
The cover artwork is by Stewart Bremner.
It’s a beautiful paperback of 298 pages with forty-three contributors.
Its only £12.99.
