Scotland is the perfect location for supernatural story telling. All those lonely hillsides, stone circles, ancient buildings and fog are ripe for stories to be creeping about in.

Then there's all the fighting. A country that's been at war with either somebody else or with itself for most of its existence can't help but be filled with stories of love and loss, heroism and betrayal.

And when it's raining and dreich, what better than to sit by a fire with a stiff drink and tell some stories?

These ones are mine to tell, ranging from the borders to the highlands, the central belt to the far islands, and covering the depth and range of Scottish history.

In THE BROTHERHOOD The Midnight Eye, Derek Adams, encounters a cult in Glasgow that has its roots all the way back in the Crusades and a quest for a holy relic.

In THE NEST something stirs in Medieval times in the bowels of the construction of a new island castle.

In THE BODY FROM THE MOSS a young Arthur Conan Doyle investigates a body brought out of an ancient peat bog that is still showing signs of life in Victorian Edinburgh.

In COMING THROUGH THE RYE an old folk song reverberates with a musical group performing in a studio in a converted castle keep, with devastating results.

In THE DUBH CASTLE BLACKTHORN something ancient and fey haunts the courtyard, and the laird, of a remote castle off the coast of Skye.

These, and the other stories present, and cover a wide gamut of my weird storytelling interests.

Pull up a chair. The whisky is on me.
